First of all welcome to my world of IT – this new website is going to cover both the business and consumer worlds of IT.
About this site
As the consumerization of business IT continues it made sense to create a new website which looks at both the consumer and business world of IT.
Topics covered on this site will range from how mobile working is truly coming of age (through smart phones/tablets/improved remote access services), the latest and greatest from Windows 8, how virtualization has changed the way we look at providing IT services especially in this era of the ‘cloud’ or managed service providers.
I’m a IT Technician at a Secondary School working in Oxfordshire - it won’t be too hard to figure out from which one if you look at some of the video articles.
I’ve been working in the world of IT since leaving college (no interest in Uni – after all what can it offer me besides a shed load of debt) and have previously worked in both IT help desk roles at in the business world of IT and at another Secondary School.
I currently hold MCTSs in Hyper-V and Windows 7 along with CompTIA A+ with the hope to finish Server+ soon.
Furthermore I hold a ILM in first line management gained as part of being a staff member in a particular uniformed youth organisation.
On top of that I have a keen interest in reading and learning about IT in any possible way.
My main personal interest is in the wonderful world of vitalization and especially in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (or VDI).
Most recently I’ve been looking into how VDI can be combined with solid state drives for outstanding performance.
Other interests include
- Microsoft Lync (and UC as a whole)
- Server/Desktop/Application virtualization
- Remote Working Systems (Direct Access/SSTP VPNs and web portals)
- Visual Studio LightSwitch 2011
- IP CCTV
- and a few other things.
Above all else I enjoy implementing new technologies and although program design interests me I haven’t done enough to consider myself as a programmer.
Thanks for reading!
