Feb 2012 - May 2012: Helped develop the Virtual Storage Console (VSC) plugin for XenCenter, essentially a port of VSC for VMware. The plugin can perform Xen operations while also handling the underlying NetApp storage, greatly simplifying the process of virtual allocation and deallocation. Release announcement here: https://communities.netapp.com/blogs/abhinavjoshi/2012/05/09/announcing--virtual-storage-console-vsc-10-for-citrix-xenserver
May 2011 - Feb 2012: Helped develop the optimization and migration module of NetApp's VMware plugin. It migrates virtual disks to optimized data storage locations in order to increase throughput, without needing to shut down the virtual machines attached to the disks.
