Since 1998 I have been dealing with IT. Looking back those days, what tools we used, what networking devices we had and how we dealt with them, was just like a bad dream. It was all about manual interactions and long hours of troubleshooting. When we look around now, some of you might say it is still the same but we have got more options / tools for everything now. More options for operating systems, storage, infrastructure, networking, security and also troubleshooting. Yes we have got more other problems to deal with but on the other hand we have got more tools to challenge them.

Another thing for most of us is to catch up with the IT and Technology. Working life is a thing keeping you really busy, using latest technology and keeping your knowledge up-to-date is another thing. In your personal life or your work you need to deal with mobile phones, tables, more laptops and more cloud interactions as well as our traditional personal and networking devices. Plus for working life, certifications are running faster than ever. Making time for everything is a big challenge on its own. Some job requirements state you to have everything, Windows, Linux, Hyper-V, VMWare, Citrix, SQL, Cloud knowledge… etc … Are they really looking for a human? The answer is yes.  At the end of the day it is up to you to support your experiences with globally known shiny certificates. That will put you in the driving seat when it comes to find a better job you wanted.

Blogging is another way to share ideas and experiences within the community. This will allow us to see the big picture and exchange ideas from other people who have been there before us.



This is a bit about me. I have been in IT over 15 years now. Started with web design and web developing. Tried a bit programming with C, C++, Java, Perl, CGI, PHP etc. Shortly started to Networking. Love it. Move into Cisco and did some work as Cisco engineer and qualified as CCVP (Voice over IP).  As I was always working with Microsoft products, inevitably moved into Microsoft client / server infrastructure. Dealt with windows servers 2000 / 2003 / 2008 / 2012 R2. Started to use Microsoft System Center products and started to deal with private cloud. Been using Hyper-V for a while now. I also used VMWare and Citrix for other virtualization products. I did some works on APP-V and MED-V. Microsoft application and desktop virtualization. also dealt with Microsoft Remote desktop Services formerly known as terminal services. As you see my main focus has always been virtualization. But everything resides on the physical infrastructure. I have been configuring HP C7000 chassis and BL and DL series servers and build my hyper-v clusters on these. Been using SAN storage and recently NetAPP storage. And finally one of the most popular topic in IT which is cloud. I have been dealing with Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS for the last 12 months. Worked on some projects to design and implement infrastructure in both cloud environments. Quite enjoyable and challenging.
