Rob Bergin leaves VKernel

November 10th, 2008 by jason Leave a reply »

Rob Bergin, who maintained the titles of Director of Systems Engineering, Director of Product Marketing, and Systems Engineer, has parted ways with the New Hampshire startup company VKernel. During Rob’s nine month tenure at VKernel, his responsibilities included development of the product roadmap strategy, documentation and creation of new features, and management of timely product release cycles.

VKernel provides 3rd party management applications for VMware Virtual Infrastructure. Their product lineup includes:

  • Capacity Analyzer
  • Chargeback
  • Modeler (announced 9/9/08)
  • and the recently announced SearchMyVM product which, strangely, is difficult to find any information for on VKernel’s website – a SearchMyVM press release links to their Modeler product

I wish Rob the best of luck in his new role of Director of Enterprise Infrastructure at CrunchTime! Information Systems.

Rob, if you get that lab hardware website up and running, let me know.

    Rob, it was always a pleasure dealing with you. I know we consumed a lot of you time, and learned a lot, sorry we weren’t able to close the deal.
    Good luck at CrunchTime!
    Will have to follow up for beers.

    Rob… I love you man. Crunch away but maybe not the VKernel way, eh?

    Thanks for the the blog entry – am glad to finally be newsworthy! Yes my time at VKernel has ended and I have left to get back to my roots – IT Director for a great company in Boston.

    It’s a great company, great people – I am very excited.

    Anyone who needs to get in touch – my email is rbergin@gmail(isnotspame).com



  4. It always concerned us how staff titles kept changing over there at vKernel. Definite warning sign of a company on the way out. I hear they really missed the boat on integrating tightly with VMware, have no Microsoft or Citrix\Xen virtualization strategy and haven’t even downloaded let alone started anything with the VI4 beta.

    I never worked with you Rob but wish you the best of luck at Crunch Time. I was simply googling for a better chargeback tool than vKernel and stumbled upon this.

    Is it true vKernel is run by a crazy guy from Germany?
