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 and Microsoft Azure. Next to that I focus on cloud related subjects like how do I move my data center to the cloud, what are the pitfalls in moving to the cloud, etc. For information about KPN ICT Consulting visit the website https://www.kpn.com/zakelijk/grootzakelijk/ict-consulting.htm
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 part. There is 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 the moment I’m looking into Docker and container related stuff. In my opinion containers are the next step in the decoupling between the application on one side and hardware and operating system on the other side. Cool stuff.
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.
