About me

I’m a 40-year old principal Consultant working for Metis IT (http://www.metisit.com. I’m a VCAP-DCA 4, VCP 4/5, MCSA2008, MCTS, MCP, CCA, CCNA . Working for large government agencies in the Netherlands with a strong focus on designing there VMware infrastructures. Started blogging a couple of years back about VDI and cloud solutions, my focus shifted towards storage and virtualization in general. This blog is all about virtualisation, cloud, storage and IT technology. Writing things on this blog is all about giving to the community. I’m married to the most beautiful woman in the world. We are blessed with two princesses (6 and 9 years old) and a prince of a year old ;-P.
I’m Yannick Arens, 23 years old and working as SDDC Consultant for Metis IT. I live in Ter Aar, a small village in the middle of The Hague, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. My girlfriend lives in Den Bosch, so if you search me, maybe I’m there :). In 2013 I graduated with honors on the subject Software Defined Data Centers. After my graduation I worked in several projects with a main focus on virtualization and SDDC. Now, as SDDC consultant I work for large companies to help them with their SDDC implementations and strategy. I like to share my experience and knowledge with others. This is the reason I started blogging about virtualization and other related products. Besides blogging, I was one of the speakers at the largest VMware UserCon in the world this year.
