My name is Andre Carpenter, I am a IT technologist from New Zealand working as a Consulting Solutions Architect at HP working in the Data Centre Transformation, Virtualisation and Cloud presales team based in Melbourne Australia. I also work with the APJ wider storage consulting practice just to spice things up.
My focus within the region of APJ/ANZ for the team is enterprise storage (3PAR), cloud offerings and virtualisation. I use the term “virtualisation” loosely as I rarely find myself dealing with the likes of Hyper-V and Xen, but more in the VMWare space and in particular server virtualisation.
I set up this blog to try and capture some of the interesting pieces of virtualisation and storage work as well as personal (and professional) interests and learnings I engage myself in on a day-to-day basis, for the most part these all revolve around Storage, Cloud computing and VMWare. The topics I write about will no doubt be written for myself to gain a better understanding or to share my experiences on topics I am confortable with – Sometimes I tend to choose subjects that I am not always very familiar with, write about them and share my findings, so hopefully you may gain something from them.
Although I work for HP, please understand that the views and expressions I share on this site may not necessarily reflect HP’s view of the IT world and that they are entirely my own.
Thanks for visiting.
