Storage Architect (October 2004 to April 2007) – JPMorgan Chase & Co

 Based in London but EMEA wide responsibility

 My role was designing and implementing storage infrastructures within the EMEA region for JPMC, covering the SAN, NAS and backup platforms.  My work involved obtaining and developing requirements from the customer and converting these into storage infrastructure designs.  I also worked on the deployment of designs through to production acceptance.  As part of my work I:

  • Investigated vendor products and solutions and determined their suitability to match customer requirements.
  • Worked with internal Engineering and Product Management teams to develop generic product solutions and standard storage frameworks.
  • Project managed the deployment of new storage infrastructures.
  • Assisted where required in the technical deployment of storage hardware and software.
  • Developed standards for the implementation of storage products.

 I have also been the technical lead for storage on the design and deployment of three new UK data centres for JPMC.  Other projects have included Storage Tools Virtualisation under VMware, backup Remote to Core migration, a 500TB data mobility solution, backup remediation and Cisco SAN design.  I had responsibility for determining the technical architecture for SAN and NAS components and for delivering detailed infrastructure design.  I worked closely with vendors (including EMC, HDS and Brocade) to ensure the deployed solutions were fit for purpose and to understand how future products could be used to implement cost effective business solutions.
