I have more than 10 years of experience in the IT industry. I currently work as an Enterprise Storage Engineer. My work involves dealing with different storage solutions what requires me to have knowledge about various aspects of IT infrastructure components and technologies.

Time spent in IT industry allowed me to gain proficiency in various aspects of IT infrastructure and technologies.

  • Virtualization - VMware ESX and Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Containerization - Docker and LXC
  • Cloud - Azure
  • Hardware - physical servers and switches
  • Software - Windows Servers, VMware and Linux
  • Networking - Fibre Channel, iSCSI and Ethernet
  • Software Development - GitHub
  • Programming - HTML/CSS, PHP, Bash

SAN storage solutions pushed me to understand basic RAID concepts and more abstract virtualized implementations of storage redundancy like LVMs, fluid data movement, dynamic tiering, deduplication and compression mechanisms.

SAN infrastructure refers to the entire network that connects storage devices to servers. This network includes various components such as subnetting, routing, switching, and zoning or VLANs for Fibre Channel and iSCSI network configuration.

When working with SAN storage, it is important to have a specific knowledge of interconnectivity, data replication, and disaster recovery. This requires a solid understanding of general networking aspects, system configuration, and some knowledge of application services such as SQL or SAP.

Sometime before my current position, I had the pleasure of working as an Information Services Manager in the pharmaceutical industry. Management role exposed me to more organizational aspects of IT as a part of the business. I had a chance to manage a relatively small team of engineers, driving IT projects initiated by the business needs. I was managing day-to-day IS department operations following ITIL methodology, implementing it in real life while improving business continuity.

I have always been more interested in the technical aspects of a problem rather than the management side. This is why I decided to change my job profile. Although my new position may not have as glamorous a title, it offers me the opportunity to have a more hands-on approach with technology, which I find more interesting.

I built this website primarily as a repository for my personal software projects, and also as a platform for some basic coding that I enjoy doing in my free time. I am not a programmer but rather a DevOps engineer, so please be gentle with my code. I hope that what I have created here is functional and useful to you.
