About Me

Thanks for dropping by.  My name is Nigel Poulton and I am a technical consultant specialising in enterprise storage and new technologies, with a keen interest in all things Data Center.  This blog is intended as a forum for top notch technical discussion, and as such requires people like yourself to join in with comments and keep the discussion lively and on track.  Opinions I express on this website are my own personal opinions and do not necessarily represent the opinions of any of my employers (past, present and future).

About Me

I’m a husband to my wonderful best of breed virtual dynamic green high performance low latency wife, and father to my two gorgeous daughters.  When I’m not working or blogging, I divide what precious little time is left between playing football (soccer), watching football (the mighty Sunderland AFC), lifting the odd weight and church (LDS/Mormon).

Technical Info

I have over 10 years experience in IT, predominantly in large enterprise environments.  During this time I have contracted for several vendors such as HDS, HP and IBM, as well as medium and large customers including large financial institutions and government agencies.  

I currently work in strategic and architectural roles.  I love all thigns enterprise tech, but am dont care for computer games and techy stuff at home – I guess you could say Im a professional technology junkie but do not spend my free time playing with computers.

    Being a networking professional I always found Storage a thing to discover and to learn more about. Nigel Poulton has done a wonderful work in making a comTIA Storage + cbt for trainsignal. This is a in-depth overview of what storage is all about. Thank you Nigel.

    Just breaking ground on the 3PAR myself. In a word, impressive! We’re installing several 4 node and a couple of 2 node (OOBM) all FC. Have you ever seen a good write up for connecting up the 3PAR NSP to various hp switches (6000, 6500 and 8000) to take advantage of spreading the load across the switch ASICs? It would certainly be helpful if I could find some detail of the ASIC per FC port group for these damn switch. In any case, well done, I like what I’ve found in your blog.
