Virtualization Engineer II – Rackspace

Jacob Morrison - Rackspace

Synopsis: Builds and supports Microsoft Hyper-V, Microsoft Private Cloud, and Azure-based virtualization offerings for Rackspace customers ranging from medium sized businesses to global enterprise operations. Applies in-depth technical knowledge to solve customer issues.

Personal thoughts: Hyper-V & Azure are two components of the Microsoft technology stack that I’m really passionate about, so when Rackspace announced they would be supporting these I was first in line to join the team.  Both Hyper-V & Azure were relatively new to customers and Rackspace alike which presented some unique challenges during initial implementation.  It has been a rewarding experience laying the groundwork for these new offerings and I’m grateful to have played a role in ensuring its success and continued growth.
