About me

I’m a Sr. Consultant and Team Lead for the Hybrid Cloud team at ITQ Consultancy. ITQ delivers professional services on VMware technology. This is my personal blog about IT related stuff. Most of my posts will be about VMware and cloud technology, because that’s where my primary focus as a consultant and architect is. I have been designing and building IT infrastructures using VMware technology ever since ESX Server 2.5 back in 2005/2006. I also have a pretty strong background in networking but after achieving my Cisco CCNP, I kind of lost focus on networking due to a change of jobs but since VMware acquired Nicira and later released NSX, my focus on networking is completely back. The NSX use cases and their potential for building seamlessly integrated and secure Hybrid Clouds are endless. What an amazing product!

About my certifications

I strongly believe in the value of learning and certification. I don’t think anyone is particularly interested in reading a list of abbreviations of my achieved certifications but I am the proud owner of VCDX-DCV #252. I successfully defended my vSphere design in May 2017. I also passed my VCIX-NV exam in August 2016 and hopefully be able to submit a VCDX-NV design at some point in time and shoot for the double VCDX status. I am also aiming for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect certifications in 2017 and 2018.

About my vExpert 2016/2017 for life

I was recognized as a vExpert in 2016 for the very first time. With my VCDX certification I am automatically vExpert. But the VMware community is all about giving back so I will still be doing my best to contribute just like before my VCDX. The VMware Community is insanely strong and H U G E. I’m very proud to be a part of it and the vExpert program. I hope this blog will allow me to give something useful back to the community.
