In the past I have served for several years with with the United Nations International Computing Centre supporting and operating a complex IT infrastructure, providing video, voice and data services to HQs and remote locations. In 2012 I have decided to move to the private sector, as a consultant focusing on the delivery of projects to customers.
In January 2016 I have returned to the United Nations International Computing Centre, this time as an IT Officer (Systems Engineer) and I relocated to Valencia, Spain.
My main areas of work and interests are: Cloud Services, Virtualization, Networking, Systems Administration, Systems and Network Security, Storage Area Networks, Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity, and ISO 27001 compliance.
I have obtained a few certifications throughout my career, some of them are worth to be mentioned:
- Cisco CCNA
- VMware VCP 3/4/5
- VMware VCP-NV (NSX)
- Microsoft MCSA on Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003
- EMC2 Certified Cloud Architect
- PRINCE2 Foundation and Practitioner
More information about my technical background and experience can be found on my LinkedIn page.
Besides actually working with technology, I like to talk about it and learn from those who have a broader experience and deeper understanding of complex tech topics. But I also enjoy sharing with others, whenever there is a chance: therefore, the idea behind this blog is for it to become my digital scrapbook, a place where to record and keep track of my experiments, lessons learned, small or big achievements, mostly for my own personal reference. At the same time, I also hope that my notes will be somehow useful to peers and colleagues and that at least some valuable content can be found here.
Along with the same sharing spirit, I volunteer for the Italian Chapter of the VMware User Group (VMUG-IT). Our goal is to gather the Italian Virtualization Community together and foster its growth and development, organizing events and creating opportunities for learning and peering. There is a VMUG in almost every country and major city, so I encourage you to check your local VMUG and to join it: it is a truly rewarding experience.
I have also been awarded by VMware with the prestigious vExpert title in 2014 (confirmed in 2015 and 2016), as a recognition of my commitment with the International VMware Users Community and by PernixData with the PernixPro qualification.
This is it. I wish you to enjoy your time on this blog and encourage you to get in touch, if you wish.
