Welcome

On July 18, 2011, in HP, Personal, Uncategorized, Virtualization, by andre

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.

You can find me on linkedin and twitter.

Thanks for visiting.
