Director, Solution Architecture
I came to Advizex to chase technology. In this industry there is no end to innovation. This inspires new ideas, ways of thinking and ways to impact my customers with an ever changing IT landscape.
Patrick was a Lead Infrastructure Engineer at a medical software company in their hosted service offering before the industry coined ‘Software as a Service’. He was responsible for everything in core datacenter except routing and firewalling. During this venture capital growth period, he become entrenched with the EMC portfolio with VNX, Symmetrix, RecoverPoint, DataDomain and Isilon along with the entire virtualization platform beginning in vSphere 4. In an effort to relocate closer to home, Patrick became a specialist for VMware technologies at a publicly traded paint manufacturer. There he was responsible for the VMware footprint at all remote manufacturing facilities and their divisions core datacenter. Patrick brought with him a level of development previously unknown to the business and introduced DevOps to the VMware ecosystem. This allowed deep integrations between a multitude of systems in IT Asset Management for information sharing and reporting. To quench his thirst for chasing innovative technology, he moved into the partner ecosystem which has allowed him to take on new business challenges and help provide solutions through IT in a meaningful way – all while maintaining his strength in core datacenter.
