Storage Training, Certification & Large Archive

I have been AWOL for a while ... busy with consulting in healthcare storage and providing training for SNIA Storage Networking Certification Exams.

I got my SNIA Certified Professional (SCP) and SNIA Certified Systems Engineer (SCSE) certifications so I thought I put them to good use by helping others understand storage networking and achieve appropriate SNIA certification. In a recent training session, it was interesting to find out from one student, who lives and works in London England, the need and unavailability of qualified SAN professionals in Western Europe. So, it may be a good place to try for new opportunities ... may be I will try some short term work across the pond.

Consulting-wise, I am working on compiling business and technical requirements and designing a high-level architecture for large capacity (2 - 10 Petabyte) Regional Archive for a client... an interesting project. I am also involved with another project for archiving as managed services.


  1. Hello Anil,

    I discovered your blog while surfing through the web trying to collect SAN & Storage specific information.

    Your blog is very rich and easy to read. And as such, you inspired me to create my own. I don't pretend to be a specialist in the field, but I'm trying to build some expertise in the SAN Storage field.

    I wish if you can pass by my blog and provide me with some guidance.

    Thanking you in advance and regards
    Ali Kouider
