I am Mark Carlton an Independent Data Centre Consultant based in the UK
“All my views are my own and not that of my employer”
For the past 15 years I have worked across Europe in various roles within the channel from end-user through to Distribution working closely with multiple mainstream vendors. I started out as desktop engineer working in for different end-users slowly building my career and expertise becoming and Data centre Consultant specialising in Data Storage and Management, Virtualisation, Disaster Recovery and Protection.
I am active on social media but new to writing blogs. I often present at customer and industry events which is where I most often share my views but have now decided to try my hand at putting this knowledge into a blog to share. From being active on social media I have become a member of the NetApp Advocate program, (The NetApp A Team) and been a part of this global team for just over a year now. The experience of been on the A-Team has taught me a lot over this past year both through things I have learnt about the industry whilst providing me insight into new and upcoming solutions. As well as introducing and elevating me within the social media world to new people.

Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with the my wife and 2 boys. I also enjoy Rugby, cycling both MTB and Road and when I get chance to squeeze in a round of golf.
