My name is Danny Alvarez and I work as a Sr. Systems Engineer for Cumberland Group (Whatever it takes for whatever is NEXT!). Prior to this role, I was a Sr. Infrastructure Engineer at Chewy.com (your pets’ favorite online store!).

I simply love technology (specially latest/greatest), and enjoy reading/talking about anything related to it. Cars too.

My main career focus has been around the following subjects:

  • Virtualization (VMware, AHV, Hyper-V)
  • Storage (Pure Storage Flasharray, EMC VMAX, Xtreme IO2, Unity, Isilon, Qumulo, Tintri, Netapp Ontap)
  • Compute (Cisco UCS, Dell Poweredge, HP Proliant)
  • Data Protection (Veeam, Cohesity, Rubrik)
