Full Biography

have over 20 years of experience in the IT industry. I have worked with Virtualization for over 15 years (mainly with VMware).

I hold the following certifications: , VCP-DCV 2022, VCAP-DCV Design 2023, VMware vSAN Specialist, and I also own the old VCP6.5-DCV and Microsoft MCP certification.
VMware vExpert: vExpert vSAN, vExpert NSX, vExpert Cloud Provider for the last two years, and vExpert for the last  7 years.

Specialties are Virtualization, Multi-Cloud, HCI, Storage, and Virtual Backup.

I am a Solutions Architect in VMware, Cloud, and Backup / Storage. I am employed by ITQ, a VMware partner, as a Senior Consultant.

About EE, I have registered (and paid customer) on this site for looking for answers to my professional problems, and questions since 2003.  I never had the time, or the patience, to answer questions from EE users.  I have started to answer some questions(with some suspend times each year), and I liked, and so I have start to help people here every time I have the time for it.

My name is Luciano Patrão and I am from Portugal and if you want any help regarding a question contact me luciano.patrao[AT]provirtualzone[DOT]com and don't forget to add the link from your question.
