IT professional with over twenty years experience working in environments of all sizes including very large enterprise, government and crown corporations. My skill set includes but is not limited to:

• SAN and NAS storage design and implementation
• Virtualization design and implementation
• Cloud: IaaS, PaaS, SaaS
• Data Protection design and implementation
• Disaster Recover design and implementation
• Consulting

My specific areas of focus have been on NetApp storage solutions as well as VMware virtualization, I have some level of understanding at every level of the stack. I believe there is still a place for traditional infrastructure for most enterprises but the future involves at least some cloud integration. As comfort levels grow and legislation adjusts, we’ll see the amount of cloud adoption grow.
