Hi, my name is Don Blake, I am US-BASED and have been in the IT field for 17 years. During that time I have been a Senior Solution Architect for some of the big name consulting companies Architecting and Configuring solutions around VMware (View, vCloud, Site Recovery Manager), Citrix (XenDesktop, XenApp, Netscaler, PVS) and Microsoft (Hyper-V, System Center Suite, Exchange, AD, Sharepoint, many more). I have worked for Big Enterprise size companies to small start up companies. My expertise is in the Virtualization arena with knowledge ranging from Storage to Microsoft products. I not only like to help clients design and troubleshoot any issues, but also like to teach them the ins and outs so they understand what is happening. I am also very big into documentation and communication. I want to make sure you are comfortable and have more information than you need. Look forward to working with you. Specialties: VMware vSphere Design and Architect VMWare vCloud Design and Architect Citrix Xenapp Design and Architect Citrix XenDesktop Design and Architect Citrix XenServer Design and Architect VMWare View Design and Architect Microsoft System Center Design and Architect Microsoft Hyper-V Design and Architect Quest vWorkspace Design and Architect Microsoft Technologies
I am an IT professional with 14 years experience in the IT industry, supporting a broad range of products. My expertise focuses around the administration and support of Miscrosft products such Systems Centre suite (SCCM, SCOM), Exchange 5.5 - 2010, Server 2000-2012, SQL 2005-2008, Forefront and many more. In the past year I have heavily concentrated on projects to Design and Implement SCCM 2012 and SCOM 2012. I now seek opportunities to further my skills. I look forward to new challenges and projects to push me to learn and develop my knowledge even further.
I have been working in IT for over 15 years now, and loved almost every minute of it. While I have experience with everything from Netware to Windows to Aix on the administration side, I primarily specialize in virtualization now, particularly using VMWare (though I have used Hyper-V more than I care to remember). To help back up that systems experience, I also have extensive experience managing storage hardware, particularly EMC and Netapp SANs and Brocade and Cisco MDS fiber channel switches. Combine this with my experience managing network hardware in one of the largest military campus networks in the Middle East, and everything in the datacenter is covered. I started my certifications with Novell and Microsoft, but have also received certifications from Comptia and Cisco at times, along with training from Netapp. Whether you are looking for someone to handle a small server issue or a full infrastructure upgrade and migration, my skills, experience and talents fit the bill. I hold VMware VCP-DCV and Cisco CCNP:DC certifications, among many others
