About

Who Am I?

I am a senior virtualization architect with more than 12 years of experience working on projects in diverse environments for industries that include financial services, legal, e-commerce, music, retail and ASP hosting services for corporate enterprises.

Having depth and breadth of technical skills combined with natural leadership and communication abilities has allowed me to excel in projects involving complex heterogeneous environments.  With demonstrated expertise in architecture, implementation, migration and management of Citrix technologies including XenApp, XenDesktop, NetScaler, Acess Gateway, Web Interface and XenServer, as well as VMware virtualization and storage technologies, I have been able to accurately assess issues and foresee potential problems ensuring that projects are thoroughly scoped and technically sound, leading to smoother, high reliability implementations.

I am also the owner and co-founder of Jdee.net Corp., a company that I started over 10 years ago while attending college.  Jdee.net is a specialty online retailer of the finest baby and juvenile furniture focusing on products imported from China, Italy and Brazil.

Certifications:

  • CCIA – Citrix Certified Integration Architect
  • CCEA – Citrix Certified Enterprise Administrator including XenDesktop 5
  • CCA for Citrix NetScaler
  • CCA for Citrix Access Gateway Enterprise Edition
  • VCP – Virtual Certified Professional (3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.1, 5.0)
  • MCSE – Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer
  • CCNA – Cisco Certified Network Associate

I have been very fortunate to work with a large collection of technologies.  This has given me many opportunities to take part in designing solutions, in addition to performing an upgrade or migration of a product.  With that being said, I don’t think I can ever grow tired of the latter, as the satisfaction of a successful migration is just as rewarding as it was for my first project, or the days I opened my first computer at the age of 7.

I am lucky to say that I’m enjoying every aspect of my career.  I look forward to waking up every day to go to work.

    Daniel, Trying to configure an GSLB solution that include FIPS; however, very confused as to how to insure use of same SSL cert and both sites where HA is implemented. Point me in direction of any good documentation on this?

      Byron,
      What kind of certs are you using? I suggest looking into a wildcard certificate. That way all names of the domain are covered (Ex: *.domain.com)

      • Bob Noneya says:

        I disagree! That is the most unsecured advice anyone can give you. If your company can afford it get a specific Certificate that is for the site you are dealing with. Certificates are not that expensive. They ensure for you and your customers that your site is secured. vpn.companyname.com as opposed to *companyname.com

      • CyberRuiz says:

        Bob good point. I am not however suggesting to utilize wildcards. Please note this is a lab I run.

        Daniel
