About

My blog

Significant Bit is a personal blog which I use to post about virtualization, VMware and other tech-focussed subjects.

The name shouldn’t be a mystery to anybody who works in IT; in computing all things are binary, and the bit with the greatest value is called the most significant bit (or the left-most or high-order bit). The least significant bit (or the right-most or low-order bit) is the one with the lowest value.

Me

My name is Robert Cranendonk, for the past few years I’ve been working as an infrastructure specialist with a heavy focus (but not limited to) VMware and its products. I’m working with VMware Cloud Foundation, NSX (V and T) and core vSphere products, and also many of the other things you can find in the datacenter; storage, networking, firewalling, etc. I’m a huge fan of automation and scripting, to tie it all together.

I started on this career path while finishing up my Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science with a deep-dive into operationalizing NSX, as part of my graduate internship in 2016.
