Well, here we are.
I haven’t had a domain name registered in a while but as I start getting serious about becoming an active member in my region’s IT scene, I figure it’s time to commit to a blog.
Here’s a little about me: I am a presales engineer for a large global corporation, covering a variety of established (named) accounts and territory accounts. I focus primarily on backup and recovery hardware and software, and over the last few years I have developed an itch for virtualization, namely vSphere.
I’m a big proponent of solid backup and disaster recovery in both the enterprise as well as at home, and it’s my mission to show both organizations as well as end users the value of a properly maintained backup paradigm.
There are several purposes to this blog; posting my personal thoughts regarding backup and recovery is only one of them. I hold a current VCP certification, of which I am working towards renewing, and my colleague Jonathan Frappier convinced me that I should document my steps towards recertification via blogging. Not a bad idea… I get to discuss my steps, get feedback, learn from others, and contribute back to the community.
You’ll also see other things, like my flying hobby (the title picture should be a tip-off).
So, that’s it for now. Backups, DR, virtualization, and flying. IT Pilot has begun!
