I started out in the IT in the year 2007. I went through the apprenticeship of 4 years and was then hired by the company where I’ve been doing my apprenticeship.
In 2011 I started in the server-team of the internal IT departement of a big retail firm in switzerland. We currently have around 1500 VMs running on 140 ESXi Hosts, some of which are being protected by VMware Site Recovery Manager. Besides vSphere and SRM we also use VMware LogInsight, VMware Operations Manager and every now and then we make use of a cool new fling from vmwarelabs.
After four years of managing the above environment I changed my job. I am currently working for a VMware partner in switzerland. We provide VMware solutions to our customers and help them achieve their IT goals using VMware software.
One of my newer responsibilities includes developing and maintaining a “ESXi Staging Appliance”. The new version is currently at release 1.4 and has many improvements on its roadmap for the years to come. If you’re interested in this let me know and we can talk about it. I cannot, unfortunately share the appliance itself with you because it’s basically company property.
I am a big fan of VMware products and love scripting. I have scripted a lot of bash-scripts and recently started to enjoy PowerCLI more and more because it helps me get my job done very easily.
One of the biggest challenges I will face this year will be the VCDX program. I will try to get into the highest circle of VMware certifications and will tell you all about this journey on my blog.
