About me

cropped-karikatuur-pvdbree-2017-orgMy name is Peter van de Bree and I’m currently working as a Global Lead Architect Infrastructure & Cloud for Motosoft.

I am a Infrastructure & Cloud vConsultant/vArchitect with more than 20 years of experience in IT. I have extensive knowledge in the field of designing, building and setup Governance for complex enterprise IT infrastructures.

I have worked in the IT industry since 1996 and have a broad knowledge of both technical and organisational aspects of IT. I like to work with complex tasks and projects and apply my broad knowledge of methods, practical knowledge and procedures. I am used to work very structurally and methodically. I specialise in Architecture, Infrastructure, Virtualization and Cloud. I am employable as an Architect and Consultant. I can communicate and act on different layers within an organisation. Can very well translate the core business into IT. Be enterprising and controlling and take business pragmatically.

A true Rotterdam mentality by raising the sleeves and not applying words but actions, I work accordingly ‘actions speak louder than words’. A well-known statement for Rotterdam residents. I am a true ‘Rotterdammer’ born and raised. (Picture is of my hometown)

I can easily translate the requirements and wishes of the client into concrete proposals or solutions. As an architect, I work structured and my way of working is result-oriented. With my strong communication skills, I work very well with my colleagues in a group and can act as a coach.

I have a fond interest in new technologies within DevOps, cloud management and cloud adoption. Strong focus on, but certainly not limited to, VMware technologies. I have specialised myself in the areas of enterprise (cloud) (virtual) infrastructures, compute, storage and Cloud solutions.

Next to my daily work, I regularly attend big events like VMworld, VMUGs and other industry events and Blog about it. Also I write articles for several websites like Dutch IT Channel, Computable, ICT Magazine and Executive People.

In my spare time, I like to be with my wife and kids, doing fun stuff together, we go camping a lot and enjoying nature. Next to that, I am a big fan of Feyenoord, the biggest club in the Netherlands. I’m attending as many games as I can, else I will watch the game on TV because I never want to miss a game of Feyenoord. Also I’m a big fan of Cycling especially the Tour de France.

Do you have a storage, cloud or virtualisation questions or issues? Or maybe just want to brainstorm about cool new solutions. Just contact me! I’m very open and always want to meet new people 🙂

Everything I post on this blog is based on my personal view.
