New beginnings

March 11th, 2014

First new post in what, 2-3 years? still performs admirably and now that I’ve moved roles I figure it’s time to re-visit my old flames. My home lab needs a re-build and upgrade and that should get documented!

So I’ve moved into the big scary world of contract based work, I started my first role a couple of weeks ago, and so far it’s going great. I want to keep an update on my exploits, the challenges real customers are facing and share some of my generic musings. The site will be less NetApp centric, but I still have my roots in storage!

My first role involved a lot of interesting challenges, but there’s some great technology available here too. A strong DevOps team (that need help integrating the Ops bit, doesn’t everyone?), lots of Big Data challenges, and an immediate project to look at creating a much more responsive infrastructure, including where cloud services fit in. I started life as a web developer, and it’s great being back at a dotcom company and seeing how the challenges have evolved.
