About Me, JK-47


Why JK-47?

Working in IT can be like war, we are in the trenches, issues all around. Problems jump up and attack without you even noticing. We must keep a watchful eye on all areas of our environment, and attack issues, before they get us!

I’ve been called many things over the years… Jarett, JK, and  I was dubbed JK-47 by my coworkers.  JK-47 , The Weapon.  I have a knack for thinking up creative solutions to the biggest problems, to defuse a potential explosive technical situation, when time has run out, and money is on the line.

I am the Principal Technologist based in PA, working with a kick ass VAR.   Currently, I design, architect, and implement solution for almost any product you can think of in technology.  As you’ll be able to see from my posts, I tend to work most with PureStorage, NetApp, Nvidia, VMware, and Cisco.

I have a cert for every letter from A-Z. A few include:

  • Nvidia CSP/CTP
  • Cisco CCNP Data Center & Multiple Partner Specializations
  • VMware VCP/VCP5-Cloud/VTSP
  • F5 Certified Product Consultant (CSP F5-PCL)
  • Riverbed Multiple RTSS/RCSA
  • And dozens more
  • Zerto certified for my Z

Throughout my career, I have worked extensively with Oracle databases (since 7.3), Unix (Irix/HPUX 10-11.31/Solaris 2.4 – 10 and many more), Linux, Virtualization (VMware since .9 wks beta), and network security.  I have more than 20 years of industry experience, having worked at companies such as Oracle, CSC, Planalytics, and others.

If you are looking for a solution to a problem, a SAN, virtualization/vdi, just about anything, send me a message. It is never too early to prepare for a disaster!

My posts are my own opinion and experiences, and do not reflect the opinions of my employer, my dog, my ex-wife, or anyone else.  I am incredibly opinionated.  I don’t tolerate poor design, and I speak my mind too much.
