Enterprise Storage Specialist

Biography

I am an enterprise storage specialist. In a later blog I will expand on what I mean by enterprise, which is a term that is probably overused and becoming harder to define with the blurring between mid-range and enterprise storage solutions.

I worked for EMC for over 9 years in the UK, with the last 4+ years as the Symmetrix presales specialist / product manager for UK&I, and 3 years prior to that at STK a technical presales role mainly selling mainframe tape and DASD solutions, and for 7 years prior to that at Lloyds Bank (a large UK retail bank) in the mainframe storage team.

I took a redundancy package from EMC back in March and have taken a few months off (mini career break) to work on a loft conversion with some builders on my house, and took the family to Orlando for a holiday in May and popped into EMC World at my expense to meet with many ex colleagues and see what EMC was publicly saying about V-Max and all their other products, and get the latest news and views in the IT and Storage space.

I have continued to follow the IT and storage industry since leaving EMC, and have read many blogs, though resisted the temptation to leave comments or blog until now. I do though have many thoughts to share, and will do so over the coming months. Thank you to those of you who have persuaded me to start blogging.

And I am now in job hunting mode, so any offers welcome ! - Sorry for the plug (advert).
