Full Biography

MPECS Inc. is a Microsoft Small Business Specialist Company that morphed into a Cloud Services company and is now a Hybrid Cloud Solutions Specialist.

Our focus is now Azure Stack HCI with a continued focus on Hyper-V and Scale-Out File Server failover clusters. The hybrid element comes in to tying Azure Stack HCI into Azure.

Check out our blog: http://blog.mpecsinc.com where you will find a lot of posts on our experiences with Azure Stack HCI, Azure, Office 365, High Availability Solutions Planning, Disaster Recovery, and more.

Microsoft awarded me the MVP award for Small Business Server 2009-12, WSSMB 2012 and 2013, and now Cluster/High Availability MVP 2014+ that has since morphed into Cloud and Data Centre Management (CDM).

Hire Me: Please feel free to contact me for assistance. I provide consultative and support services for dedicated clients as well as on behalf of IT Organizations around the world as an "employee".

I am what I do: Geek
I am very fortunate to get paid for what I love to do!
