Hi, I'm Rudi Martinsen
I am working as a Senior Systems Engineer for Proact in Norway.
In my role I am focusing on providing customers the tools and processes needed for automating their infrastructure and help them on their journey to the Self Driving Datacenter.
I am also a contracted Senior Consultant for VMware PSO (Professional Services) working for VMware in their PSO projects.
In 2018 I was regonized as a VMware vExpert for the first time, an award I also received in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023. In 2020 I also got included in the vExpert Cloud Management and vExpert Application Modernization sub-programs which was renewed in 2021 and 2022, and from 2021 I'm also one of the inagural members of the vExpert Avi sub-program.
In 2021 I was included in the Tanzu Vanguard community.
From 2019 I am also part of the Norwegian VMware User Group leadership team.
I also hold some certifications, mainly focused on VMware and HPE, and I've even had the great pleasure of contributing to VMware certifications. For more details check out my LinkedIn profile or check the badges issued through Acclaim.
Over the years I have had some speaking engagements. A list can be found here
I've done some sporadic attempts on blogging previously, some of it have been private only. This blog will mainly be a place for me to document some of the things I'm interested in and working with at work. If anyone else would find it interesting, well that's great! If you really like my work and want to donate you can buy me a coffee.
Please note that this is my private blog and it does not necessarily represent the views and opinions of my employer, disclaimer.
