About Us > Ather Beg

Ather Beg

Ather is a solutions architect and works for Rackspace. His focus is on all things related to cloud, technology, storage, virtualization, and whatever comes in between. Being in the industry for over 20 years, he feels ancient. If you feel that inclined, he can bore you with stories on how he used to manually park heads on a hard drive or bound protocols to network cards. Seriously though, he has designed, deployed, and managed many enterprise environments, involving virtualization, storage, directory, and mail services. Ather started blogging over nine years ago so that he could share some of his knowledge with the community. He has been a vExpert for six years running and is also vExpert NSX/Cloud. He has been an official VMware blogger at VMworld EU and US for a few years too. He is one of the founding members and contributor to Open HomeLab Wiki and co-hosts @OpenTechCast as well. Ather’s natural habitat is tech events like VMworld, Cloud (and other) Field Days, VMUGs, etc., and he thrives on meeting like-minded people and having a good old chat about technology. He’s friendly and not dangerous at all, so please do interact with him whenever you spot him in such surroundings.
