I am a storage evangelist and I am the founding member and Chairman of SNIA Malaysia. My name is Chin-Fah, Heoh and I have been involved in IT for almost 20 years.
I have been involved with Storage Networking technologies for more than 10 years with positions in implementation, post-sales, pre-sales, sales and management. My previous companies include Sun Microsystems, NetApp, Hitachi Data Systems and EMC. I have a very healthy appetite to learn and hence, I have also been involved in many different IT related topics such as Operating Systems, Networking, Databases, Backup and Archiving solutions, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, Storage Management and so on.
I am certified RedHat RHCE, NetApp NCDA, HDS Certified Professional, EMC Proven Professional, SNIA FC SAN Professional (now obsolete), BC Certified Planner from BCM Institute, SuSE Linux Certified Professional, IBM DB2 Certified Associate, Sun Certified Network Administrator and Sun Certified Java Developer. I was also a certified trainer for Sun and Netscape and currently involved in NetApp and SNIA certified trainer engagements.
I like to read (a lot!), mostly in storage networking technologies and open source Linux progress. My favorite topic is on file systems and at present, I have been spending a lot of time reading and learning about Oracle Solaris ZFS and NetApp’s WAFL. Because I am such a busybody, I also got involved (lightly) into new technologies such as EqualLogic, Compellent, 3PAR, Gluster, Isilon and so on.
I am passionate about what I do. I have just started my own business to promote SNIA certified courses and certifications. That is why I started this blog because I am truly ga-ga over storage.
