About Me

Hi, welcome to my blog – Virtualising Middle Earth.

My name is Clinton Prentice and I currently live in Tauranga, which is located in the sunny Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.

I have been working in the IT industry for 20 years and specialise in VMware virtualisation, data centre infrastructure  and cloud technologies. I have provided IT services to private, corporate and government sectors both in New Zealand and Australia.

Over the years I have obtained numerous industry certifications from Cisco, Microsoft, Riverbed, Amazon Web Services, VMware and Nutanix.

I have passed multiple VMware professional and advanced professional certifications and been awarded the coveted title of VMware vExpert and VMware vChampion for both 2016 and 2017 for sharing my knowledge back to the virtual community.

I currently work for Parallo (rebranded from ViFX) -> http://www.parallo.com/
