About me the author of this blog
I have been working as an IT consultant for the last 15 years. Prior to that I studied computer sciences and earned my bachelor from a renown university. During studies I started working as a developer and partially as a support technician, which introduced me to the world of IT Pros. I have worked both with small, medium and large customers in an international scale. I have worked with large enterprise customers like HSBC and Unilever. Talking about medium and small business, the smallest of my customers have been having 2-3 users. So quite a diverse customer set, especially with regards to type of customers and businesses.
Tools and technologies that I have worked with or still work with include
Microsoft Active Directory (AD DS), Domain naming system (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Network Time Protocol (NTP), Group policies (GPO), Public Key infrastructure (PKI), Distributed file system (DFS), Simple mail transfer protocol (SMTP), Radius server (RAS), Direct Access, System center Configuration Manager (SCCM), System center Operations Manager (SCOM), System center Service Manager (SCSM), Windows deployment service (WDS), Microsoft Deployment Kit (MDT), MS SQL, Microsoft Exchange, Windows Server 2003, Windows server 2008, Windows server 2012, Windows server 2016, Windows server 2019, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 10, Sharepoint on-prem and Sharepoint Online, Azure AD, Office 365, Powershell, VB scripting. Cisco catalyst switches and ASA firewalls. Extreme Switches, along with PaloAlto Network firewalls and Checkpoint firewalls. Fiber based and copper based networks. MFA products like RSA, Microsoft MFA, Duo security etc. Vmware V-center and Hyper-V, SAN’s mostly IBM based and some Microsoft based on SOFS. Monitoring tools and SELM solutions like Splunk and ELK stack. Other things worth mentioning are general architecture and design of IT systems.
I intend to share my experiences with others as well as using this blog as personal online diary in order to gather all my notes at one place, instead of saving them multiple places and not being able to find them when required.
As I might previously have stated, this is my personal blog hence there is no use or need to describe my employer. However, if you still are interested in getting hold of me, try using the blog by registering your self and dropping a comment.
