Chef Vlad - System Administrator

Chef Vlad - System Administrator

The ever-increasing number of IT infrastructure solution request from new customers has determined the evolution of the corresponding Soft Pepper division. So it's a pleasure for us to introduce Chef Vlad as System Administrator which brings to the table more than 10 years of software and hardware IT specific expertise in areas of: deployment automation, fast storage solutions, open-source storage, network services implementation, back-up and security solutions, virtualization and cluster solutions.

On his career path, driven by his passion for IT and the desire to develop his system administration know-how, Vlad ventured towards larger companies and bigger projects losing his enthusiasm along the way as it usually happens in today’s dehumanized corporate environments. Although his past experience is centered on larger companies he finds Soft Pepper's startup culture a lot more motivational and enjoys complete initiative support in overcoming the challenges of incoming IT infrastructure projects.

Vlad’s responsibilities include: internal infrastructure optimization and maintenance, virtualization solutions design and implementation, services and processes automation and finding efficient open-source storage solutions.

When he’s not caught up in the reality of IT infrastructure design and troubleshooting, Vlad enjoys the optimism of Science Fiction universes found in the latest movies and books. Vlad is able to persuade even the strongest romantic comedy fan to watch the entire Star Wars saga in all its 7 parts glory. "The Force is strong with this one!" He can also update you with the latest geopolitical situation and it’s prerequisites in half the time of a cigarette break, although he’s not a smoker :)
