About the blog author
Massimiliano (Max) Mortillaro is an independent data center consultant specialising in virtualisation and storage technologies. Besides providing services to corporate customers, he is also the co-organizer of the TECHunplugged independent IT conference. He’s an advocate for online security, privacy, encryption and digital rights.
Max is active in the larger data centre community: besides his professional engagements he has been multiple times a Tech Field Day delegate, he is also one of the re-founders of the Czech Republic VMware User Group and one of its former leaders. Finally, he has received the VMware vExpert accolade for the fifth year in a row (2013-2017) and the Nutanix Technology Champion accolade in 2017.
Since 2008, Max has used this space to blog about IT privately: all opinions and posts are strictly personal, they did not and do not reflect the views of any of his past or present employers.
Like his name very wrongfully hints, Max is French and lives with his family in Prague, Czech Republic. Besides being a failed sportsman he is a general bon vivant and the impersonation of your average hobbit in full size.
