Boost up career with Nutanix as Consulting Architect

No-SANNew job at Nutanix as Consulting Architect

Exciting times ahead, on 1’st of June 2014 I will officially start at Nutanix as Consulting Architect for EMEA. Nutanix is a leader in hyper-converged infrastructure which is one of the hottest topics in IT and the new streams in IT, software defined datacenters (SDDC) and Software Defined Storage (SDS). The Nutanix solution brings you scalability, simplicity and performance in a very nice package referred to as a Nutanix block which includes both compute (CPU & RAM) and storage into single Nutanix block.

To be honest, I can’t wait to start work for my new company, which is still considered as start-up by some people. Not sure if company with more than 500 employees, almost 1000 customers and founded in 2009 can be still called start-up, I let you judge ?

For those are not familiar with Nutanix solution, more info can be found here.

I will work in Professional Service Offering team (PSO), new division of Nutanix on EMEA region. As a Consulting Architect I will focus on Private Cloud Solutions, datacenters migration, automation (vCloud Automation Center and vCloud Orchestrator), VDI (Citrix XEN Desktop and VMware View), hypervisors (Hyper-V, KVM, VMware ESXi) and contribution into practice development. A you can see exciting and challenging times ahead, but what is even more important for me, few more technologies (VDI, automation), vendors (Microsoft, Citrix) along with their technologies I will have to learn and become as good as on VMware solutions.  Along with Consulting Architect role I will work as Technical Account Manager for key Nutanix customers in EMEA region for next 12 months. However, as I mention before, I will focus  on Consulting Architect role. What is the best in this role, I will work with people who are smarter and have broader experience/knowledge then myself :-), which is always good for personal development. For example one of my team mates in PSO will be Magnus Anderson (Double VCDX, DV and Cloud), another great individuals which are part of the Nutanix are: Andre Leibovici – Technical Alliance Manger, Senior Performance Engineers: Josh Odgers, Mike Webster, Bas RaymanSolution architect and author of Nutanix Bible – Steven Poitras, just to mention those which I know. Cooperate and work on daily basis with such a fantastic professionals like those I mention can only help to reach my next career goals.
