Some ramblings about me, I’m Craig Kilborn, 38 years old and I live in the UK. I work as a Lead Solutions Architect for SCC designing and implementing infrastructure and virtual desktop solutions.

One of the main reasons I enjoy virtualisation is that it combines many of my passions for storage, design, networking and servers.

I get a real kick out of helping clients achieve business goals through IT, as without them I wouldn’t get to play with all the cool stuff.

Due to the breadth of work I undertake, one of the main things is trying to keep up to date with qualifications from various vendors, it does help if you have a supportive company behind you who embrace your appetite for knowledge.
