About

In addition to engaging with customers and press, I present at Industry-leading events to drive awareness and excitement about what we are doing at VMware.

I’m the Chief Technologist for the Cloud Platform Business Unit at VMware. In this role, I focus on new workloads on resource management and new hardware. How can we improve our current product suite and how can customers use the current feature set to deploy these workloads and hardware on the vSphere platform successfully? I serve as a trusted adviser to VMware’s customers and partners and gather customer feedback on VMware Cloud and Hypervisor products. This feedback is relayed to the product teams to ensure new functionalities match the customer needs.

Besides my position at VMware, I serve as a technical adviser for EVO Venture Partners. In this role, I provide strategic guidance for our portfolio.
I am a VMware Certified Design Expert (nr. 29) and the primary author of frankdenneman.nl. A blog focused on resource management for virtual infrastructures.

  1. VMware vSphere 6.7 Clustering Technical Deep Dive (2017)
  2. VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Resources Deep Dive (2017)
