Let’s start blogging again. A lots of time passed since I blogged interesting things. The main reason was, I decided to change my employer. The last weeks we moved our home, too. Now my little family is living in a suite little house, with a big garden, a big garage but no more big cellar. But I will talk about this circumstance some lines later.
Today I had my first day at qSkills. This is my new employer. I’m working as an IT Architect and Software-Engineer. My first job is to design and implement an entire new network because the current network is very outdated. Maybe the new network is based on Cisco Nexus. It’s hot stuff and my new boss loves nice and cool toys. Me too! BTW. the company earns his money with professionel trainings and they have a strong relationship with Fujitsu and NetApp. In the dedicated training datacenter (nine 47U racks!) are lot’s of nice toys installed, predominantly Fujitsu servers and many NetApps storage systems of course. A very nice playground for lot’s of tests in addition to my private lab. A good point to talk about my home lab.
My well known home data center is DEAD ! I moved everyting into the new garage, until I can start my new home lab idea. I’m not sure if I can pay the new idea this year, because the move to the new home was very expensive and I have a wife and little daughter who needs money too. But I can wait until next year. Meanwhile I’m running a tempory solution in the new cellar which is not big enough for a 2m tall rack. But it’s enough for playing and blogging about my experience, as you can see on the last picture. That’s why I hope you visit my blog, again….
