Mike currently works as Director of Technical Marketing and Solutions at Datrium. Mike has also worked at Nimble Storage (now part of HPE) as Sr. Manager of Technical Marketing. Over the past 2 decades he has worked within the storage industry at other companies such at Veritas, Data Domain, EMC and Scale Computing.

Working in the early stage efforts of companies introducing innovative technologies has always been a passion. This has Enabled him to cover topical areas such as: software defined storage, virtualization, data protection, deduplication, hybrid and all flash arrays and now open convergence architectures.

Some of the areas of focus have been around performance testing and [desktop] virtualization.

New technology is always interesting to play with but putting that into action which helps lower costs and simplify manageability are the underlying goals of The Storage Idealist.

The thoughts, ideas and topics presented here are my own and have evolved over years of working with some of the best minds and solutions in the data center market space.
