My name is Adam Fisher and I am a Cloud Technical Architect in Apex, NC for World Wide Technology (WWT).  I have a long background in the Data Center space, which means a lot of VMware, Veeam, DellEMC, NetApp, Cisco and HPE, just to name a handful.  Like many others in the IT industry I’ve pivoted to public cloud, focused on AWS and VMware Cloud offerings.  I’m a huge music fan and have been playing drums since I was 13.  I root for all Pittsburgh sports teams (Pirates?) and Virginia Tech football.  I’m also an amateur BBQ pit “master” and enthusiast.  This blog is focused on the work stuff, but may have a sprinkle of the other stuff.

My name is David Ball and I’m a Cloud Platform Engineer/Architect based in North Carolina.  I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Susan for nearly 26 years, and we are plenty busy with 6 kids though “only” 3 now live at our house.  I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia rooting for UVA, the Chicago Cubs, the Boston Celtics, and the Washington Redskins though I did have a two-year fling with the Eagles.  But as I’ve gotten older and Washington has fallen from the NFL elite, I now jump on bandwagons…yes, I’m that fan now!!  When I’m not working or considering which team to switch my football allegiances to, I enjoy traveling and photography.
