Hi all, welcome to my online personification :-)
I'm a 21 year old Bachelor Computer Science student from Holland, currently living in Austria for my internship at Hilti AG. My IT related interests vary from IT infrastructures like storage and virtualization to coding, security, UNIX-like operating systems and much more. Please feel free to check out some blog posts or one of my GitHub projects.
As an IT guy I of course run my own lab at home, which enables me to get in touch with the latest technologies. It currently exists of a self-built FibreChannel 20TB ZFS SAN that’s serving multiple LUN’s to an ESXi host. The planning is to migrate later this year to a three node Ceph + OpenStack cluster. The focus will be moved to less but faster storage and utilize caching as much as possible.
At the start of 2013 I initiated a small project written in C to save IO related measurements of my ZFS home SAN to a MySQL database. Later that same year I developed some interest in Ruby on Rails and AngularJS, which I combined to create a server application for receiving and graphing ZFS measurements. The C program got replaced by a couple of Python client scripts.
Besides working on all kind of IT topics, I also enjoy mountainbiking or a nice hiking trail.
