|Welcome to my world. The
employment landscape has been changing at a pretty furious
pace. Sun, Sun, Mitre, Sun, Oracle... With the
acquisition of Sun by Oracle, I had time in four different
job roles. Well, now I'm off doing something
completely different. I am Principal Architect for
ICT at Huawei, a
very cool company that does mostly network side, with
recent forays into very excellent servers, storage, cloud
control software, and random geeky toys. Continuing
to fix stuff that's broken, whether the broken pieces are
technology, people, or process. I am enjoying the
occasional "oh my god" emergency escalation, but really
enjoying helping customers evolve and succeed. Have
suitcase, will work for bandwidth, some decent Thai food,
and the occasional cool toy.
Huawei keeps me hopping, lots of time in the EU... but I am based (and living) in Shenzhen China for now. A nifty city, very clean, just a metro train ride from Hong Kong, with some of the most awesome geek-toy shopping anywhere in the world. Look at the back of your favorite electronic gadget. If it says "made in China", odds are that it was either made here in Shenzhen, or Shenzhen has something just like it with a couple extra "features". The rest of the world has MP3 and MP4... Just this weekend I saw a whole case full of "MP9" players. Yeah! Who wouldn't want that! Ours always goes to 11 (even if the specification and standards only go to 3 or 4).
|I specialize in HEDC and DataCenter
solutions in the commercial sector, if that can be called
a specialty. I try to remain a generalist,
concentrating on creating "Manageable Solutions" to match
customer needs. My current expressed areas of
concentration are Capacity Planning, Performance
Management, System Management, and Systems Architecture. I
am currently working on Server Consolidation definition
and delivery of services with David Hornby and David
I am a member of Usenix and SAGE , though I am rarely able to keep up with extracurricular activities including geek-fests such as Usenix meetings. I am, and always will be, first and foremost, a geek.
