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.
In 2016, 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. I’m responsible for all technologies at 1 customer and I’m part of the operations team, providing 3rd line support for all our customers for VMware, storage, and backup.
My focus lies mainly on the core vSphere stack, this also includes vSAN and VVOLs.
