Senior Product Manager
I have been working with virtualization technologies since the mid-nineties, when I cut my teeth on Insignia NTrigue, a technology that was acquired by Citrix in January 1998. I then went on to roll-out the world’s first Terminal Server implementation based on Windows 2000 (which we went live with in 1999). A proud moment was when the project received a mention in one of Steve Ballmer’s keynotes during the launch of Windows 2000.Since then, I got the bug, and have been evangelizing about the benefits of virtualization in its various guises ever since! I got involved with RES Software in January 2006, as I saw the benefit in separating the user from a specific device… one of the pain points I had suffered from myself with previous projects. I found the top down approach appealing… deal with the User first and foremost, and everything else will follow with less impact and no downtime – a concept that is even more important today with the advent of hosted virtual desktops and complex operating system migrations. I love the continual challenge we get from customers on a daily basis, and every day in my role at RES Software is different from the last. Our technology is moving so quickly, it certainly keeps life interesting!
