Why Is the Internet Broken: Greatest Hits

When I started this site back in October of 2014, it was mainly to drive traffic to my NetApp Insight sessions -and it worked.

(By the way… stay tuned for a blog on this year’s new Insight sessions by yours truly. Now with more lab!)

As I continued writing, my goal was to keep creating content – don’t be the guy who just shows up during conference season.

blogfieldofdreams

So far, so good.

But since I create so much content, it gets hard to find for new visitors to this site, The WordPress archives/table of contents is lacking. So, what I’ve done is create my own table of contents of the top 5 most visited posts.

Top 5 Blogs (by number of visits)

TECH::Using NFS with Docker – Where does it fit in?

SMB1 Vulnerabilities: How do they affect NetApp’s Data ONTAP?

TECH::Become a clustered Data ONTAP CLI Ninja

ONTAP 9.1 is now generally available (GA)!

NetApp FlexGroup: An evolution of NAS

I also used to write for datacenterdude.com on occasion.

How else do I find stuff?
