Hi and Welcome to Phy2Vir.
My name is Brian Farrugia and I am a Systems Support Engineer with a local support services provider and hardware vendor. I am the author of this blog. I have been working in IT since 1998, were I started as an assistant Computer Technician. My job evolved from servicing PCs, Laptops and peripherals to becoming a Systems Support Engineer in 2009. During this time I have been trying to specialise in virtualization (mainly VMware), Storage (SAN,NAS,DAS) and Backup solutions (mainly Veeam).
I have graduated in Industrial Electronics and read a Degree in B.Sc. ICT (Hons) (Melit). I am currently VCP5 and MCSA 2008 certified. I am also a DCIE, Datacore Certified Implementation Engineer – SAN Symphony V-10 , and Backup Academy Certified professional together with various DELL(servers,storage) and HP(servers,clients) certifications.
The purpose of this blog is for me to have a repository where to keep notes and make reference to them when needed. The content will be varied. This will not be a subject based blog, like virtualization or storage, but rather an open blog where I will write about anything I find of interest during work or play with I.T.
In the past I had a private wordpress site on my QNAP NAS on which I used to jot down these notes. I decided to make them public because I want to try and give something back to the community that has given so much to me. People such as Luca Dell’Oca, Rick Vanover, Duncan Epping, Tim Smith, William Lam and Anthony Spiteri, to mention a few, have helped me so much with their posts in the past years. Their level of knowledge and writing is very high, and as such they are an inspiration to me in this feild.
If you would like to contact me you can do so on admin [at] phy2vir . com or on twitter @BriFarrugia. I would like to hear any suggestions or comments about the site or content.
You may also make reference to my Linkedin Profile should you wish to learn more about me.
