About me

I have more than 15 years hands-on experience in the IT field. The majority of my work is in networking, operating systems and applications and storage. I carry industry certifications in Redhat, Microsoft, EMC, VMWare, VCE and ITIL.

I find it hard to find procedures or documents on how to implement specific technology and this is how the decision to create a place to share my knowledge and ideas for anyone interested in the same subject.

If you have the same vision and you are interested to publish on this website please contact me and I will create an account for you.
