Hello, I am David Allen, and I work as a Managing Consultant for Aquilaweb Cloud Solutions Ltd, focussing on Microsoft virtualisation, management and cloud technologies. This includes products such as Microsoft System Center, Windows Server, Hyper-V and Windows Azure Pack. Back in 2008 I was presented with an MVP award from Microsoft, which I have retained to this, and intend to keep sharing my real world solutions here on this blog. I have worked in IT for over 10 years, and have had a focus on Microsoft management products for 7 of them. Over this time I have authored books, presented at some of Microsoft biggest events in the world, and helped out many people posting articles and responding to forum posts. And, with my continued and growing work in “cloud” technologies and management, I want to share even more information and experiences! I hope this blog is useful, and I am always open to feedback.
