More About VirtualVCP
Thank you for visiting Virtualvcp.com. I am Rynardt Spies and I'm a Consultant, currently specialising in virtualisation, mainly focused on VMware. I live with my wife Sarah, daughter Lanie, and son Zachariah, in Hertfordshire, just north of London, England.
I've been working in IT for the past 10 years. I originally started out in application and database development with Delphi, C++ and Oracle. I have a diploma in Comprehensive Programming [Dip.Comp.Prog (CTI)], and I'm also a VMware Certified Professional (VCP ID:10305) in VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3, vSphere 4 as well as vSphere 5 and also hold VMware VCAP-DCA and VCAP-DCD certifications. I am also the co-author of VMware vSphere Performance (ISBN: 978-1118008195), a book that focuses on the performance aspects of VMware vSphere.
I somehow ended up in desktop and server support (Thank God mainly server support), but for the last 6 years, I've mainly been focused on virtualisation with VMware. I'm currently employed as a Consultant at Computacenter UK. Lately, my main area of interest is infrastructure design, including both physical and virtual infrastructures. I always find good challenges in designing and building secure and cost efficient infrastructures and solutions.
Some of my main skills include:
VMware ESX 2, VI3 and vSphere4/5/5.1
VMware View 5
Windows NT, 2000, 2003, 2008 /R2
Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 and 2003
Novell Netware 5.1 and 6.5
Novell SuSe Enterprise Linux 10
Novell Open Enterprise Linux 10
OpenSuse 10 and 11
Apache Web Server and MySQL (Linux)
As and when I come across problems and scenarios in my day-to-day tasks, I try to post them here as a future reference for myself and others that may come across the same issues.
