About me

My IT history

Past 20 years I’m primarily Unix, storage and backup guy.
But I have to use network, server, security products in many my projects.
I’m fmiliar with these worlds as well.

What distinguish me from most of other storage & backup specialists is this wide area of understanding “how stuff works”.

Examples what I can offer to you

as storage & backup troubleshooter

  • I will inspect TCP headers to identify incorrectly configured maximum TCP window causing poor performance of NAS box.
  • I will play with kernel parameters and filesystem options to get best performance for backup software database.
  • I will inspect firewall rules to find out why some NAS protocol is not working properly.

as storage & backup designer

  • Audit your current storage and backup infrastructure
  • Data mining to run capacity and performance reports
  • Suggest changes and improvements
  • Help you to define requirements for RFP
  • Help you to evaluate vendors’ proposals
