Rubrik Drops 3.2 - Cloud Clusters and More!

Today the fine folks over at Rubrik dropped their 3.2 release and it is packed with quite a few nifty little features, especially for a .2 release. Quick aside here, if you dont follow the below folks on social media you're missing out. They have at least a quorum between them of VCDXs and each and every one of them are accomplished technologists with strong social media presence. Quite a stout tech marketing group for a small company if you ask me. Chris Wahl - Chief Technologist @chriswahl http://wahlnetwork.com/ Andrew Miller - Tech Marketing @andriven https://thinkmeta.…

Well here it is, my first blog post there isn't much here right now, and I have to say I am not overly impressed with WordPress.com. I would much prefer to have hosted this blog on my own server in order to take advantage of expanded customization, specifically syntax highlighting since I intend to do a bit of blogging about T-SQL.
