virtualization.info has learned that Ron Oglesby, Practice Executive, Global Infrastructure Consulting Services at Dell, left the company last week.
Oglesby is one of the most popular names in the virtualization industry, author of the bestsellers VMware ESX Server 2.5 Advanced Technical Guide and VMware Infrastructure 3 Advanced Technical Design Guide.
He was one of the premiere speakers at our Virtualization Congress 2009 and he appears on virtualization.info from time to time as guest columnist (see his last article here: Is there an optimal adoption curve for server virtualization?).
Rumors report Oglesby as the new Chief Solution Architect at Unidesk (still unconfirmed).
Unidesk is a US startup founded in December 2007, funded by Matrix Partners and North Bridge Venture with a $8.1M Round A, and focused on VDI.
The company tried to launch a couple of times in the past two years (one in August 2008), and now their product, based on a patent-pending Composite Virtualization technology, is in private beta.
