My name is Maarten Van Driessen, I’m “fairly young” (26 when I wrote this) and am only just starting to find my way in the larger tech industry.
Being Belgian (Antwerp to be precise), I’m a cycling and cyclocross enthusiast and avid beer lover.
I started working in IT in December 2009 as a service desk analyst. In 2011 I made the switch to an MSP in the Brussels area, working there has given me the opportunity to touch a lot of different environments and technologies.
This year I started working for Realdolmen as a system engineer. Working here gives me the opportunity to work with larger environments and get some more experience with a wide range of technologies. At the customer I’m working for now, I’m responsible for the VMware, Veeam and Storage environments
Early on, my focus was mainly on Windows Server environments. Recently, however, I started to look at more parts of the stack, with a strong interest in virtualization.
