I have been employed in the IT industry for 20 years or so, starting on a Helpdesk and quickly being promoted to Systems Engineer level. Since then, I have held a number of senior positions within internal IT and managed services functions.
I currently specialise in VMware vSphere ESXi and a number of storage technologies. I’m currently working with VMware vSphere 6.7, supporting ESXi 6.7 and 6.5. I also work with Pure Storage FlashArray//X, NetApp AFF, and HPE 3Par arrays having migrated data off old Dell EMC Isilon and VNX arrays.
I have a strong background in systems infrastructure, having held positions with primary responsibilities spanning networking (Cisco Catalyst IOS and Nexus NX-OS), storage (IBM SVC, DS4000, Pure Flash Array, NetApp FAS, AFF (snapmirror & IP Metrocluster)), virtualization (VMware vSphere, ESX, ESXi, vRealize Operations, vRealize Automation, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V).
I sometimes write about things that interest me within the IT industry.
