About Me

My name is Alex Galbraith, and I am a Solutions Architect working for Rackspace, and based in Surrey, UK.

I’ve been an IT pro since 2003, and got into virtualisation shortly after, with the release of VMware ESX and GSX 2.x! I’ve been a VCP since the VI3 days and have managed numerous virtual environments from tiny two host solutions, to thousands of VMs and due to my love of all things VM, have been fortunate enough to be awarded vExpert status for the last five years (2013/14/15/16/17).

More recently I’ve also been invited to be a delegate at Tech Field Day, which have been truly awesome experiences!

In 2016 / 2017 I became a bit of a cloud monkey, having nailed down a number of AWS and Azure certs, and spending most of my working hours doing cloudy things, with GCP on the horizon!

This site contains a bit of info about me, links to my other presences on the web, and a few technical ramblings which started mainly an aid to memory for me, and grew into an itch I have to scratch most weeks…

I also like memes! 🙂

Speaking, Podcasts, Etc
I’m a bit of a gab, so I try to practice a bit of public speaking, or do the odd podcast when people are foolish enough to let me do so! This is a list of some sessions and the decks associated:
