Now a Storage and Backup Engineer at SCC in Birmingham specialising in NetBackup.
I had been with a Veritas / Symantec Partner since 1999 and have worked with Veritas / Symantec products since that date.
Initially working with the Desktop Management Suite (Wininstall, Winland and Funk Proxy) and then moving on predominantly to work with NetBackup and Enterprise Vault.
Acheived Master Status in NetBackup and NetBackup Appliances and ACS (Authorized Symantec Consultant) for Data Protection (NetBackup).
I recently successfully completed the "Expert Validation" for my last company to get the Expert Partner for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Competency status.
In terms of my job it previously went all the way through from Pre-Sales to performing site audits / analysis, design of Backup and Archiving Systems, Implementation and Documentation and also training in our own Training Suite.
I have worked with some great customers with a wide range of type and size and have recently been involved in implementing the Symantec N50xx and N52xx Series Appliances as well as being fully trained on the N533xx series of appliance.
We performed managed services for customers and looked after and reported on NetBackup systems on a daily basis in London, Hong Kong, New York, Singapore, Dubai, Johannesburg and Australia - isn't remote desktop fantastic!
I am now with SCC specialising in NetBackup and future planning / implementation for them.
My primary hobby is radio control models including aircraft and quad copters (drones as everyone calls them). You can find me on YouTube as modellermark2 and I also own "Ratby Aeroplanes" although that is just a hobby these days.
