I’m Pete Koehler, currently a Systems Engineer at PernixData. After being in IT for as long as I have, you pick up a thing or two along the way. This is my little way of sharing what I’ve observed and learned.
My life in IT started about 20 years ago. Working for a large engineering firm as a Drafter, a few people noticed I had the ability to automate CAD software when nobody else did. I migrated over to the world of Information Systems with the graciousness of a Network Administrator who saw potential in me, and was a little overworked himself. Years of mentoring, self study, certification exams, and hard work landed me a Systems Administrator position for a software company in Bellevue, Washington. For 13 years I had the opportunity to Administer every aspect of the environment, with eventually architecting it into a modern, virtualized infrastructure. My focus now in virtualization, shared storage, networking, and the other glue that makes it all work.
