My name is Jurgen Allewijn. I work as a Cloud Solution Architect for KPN Consulting in the Netherlands. I focus on data center virtualization projects based on VMware products and Cloud projects. The cloud projects are mostly around the IaaS offerings of KPN, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and IBM Bluemix but more about cloud related subjects like how do I move my datacenter to the cloud, what are the pittfalls in moving to the cloud. For information about KPN Consulting visit the website http://www.kpnconsulting.nl.
I am working in the IT business for more than 20 years and got a lot of experience with different products on the way. My focus area within IT, has always been on the infrastructure component. There is of course an important relationship between business and IT. IT and especially infrastructure should not be leading in the making of decisions but should always have the role of enabler for business needs.
At first the focus was mainly on the on premise data center and the hosted environment but more and more it shifted to cloud, mostly IaaS at the moment. I find this shift very interesting and try also to keep my knowledge and experience in sync with these changes in the IT infrastructure domain. I hold different Microsoft and VMware certifications. My VMware transcript can be found here and my Microsoft transcript can be found here, transcriptid code :97 9790 and access code: JST111969. My full profile can be found here.
I’m a father of two sons. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and on my hobbies. My hobbies include enjoying single malt whisky, traditional archery and playing mmo-rpg games like World of Warcraft.
