He now spends much of his time helping others in VMware's community support forums, having achieved Guru status and become one of the forum's moderators. Eric's own web site, vsphere-land.com, is where he shares his tips and experiences as well as hundreds of links to technical information and top 10 lists on a variety of subjects. Additionally, Eric writes tips and blogs for Tech Target on sites such as searchvmware.com, searchservervirtualization.com, and searchdatabackup.com.
