Introducing Jon Tate – Mr IBM Storage Redbooks


8,972 views on developerworks

Hi all, I’d like to introduce Jon Tate who has been added as a co-author to my blog. Jon is known to the team here as “Mr IBM Redbooks” – and will be posting about new publications, any new residencies that are available etc, specifically related to storage and networking.

Here is Jon’s bio details, and look out for his first post soon – under his developerWorks name “JonTate”

Jon Tate is a Project Manager for IBM System Storage Virtualization and System Networking Solutions at the International Technical Support Organization, San Jose Center. Before joining the ITSO in 1999, he worked in the IBM Technical Support Center, providing Level 2/3 support for IBM storage products. Jon has 27 years of experience in storage software and management, services, and support, and is both an IBM Certified IT Specialist and an IBM SAN Certified Specialist. He is also the UK Chairman of the Storage Networking Industry Association.

That’s the formal bit out of the way. Most of you will be familiar with IBM Redbooks (we are not allowed to say just Redbook, or Redbooks, for legal reasons as there is some other publication (safe for work!) that registered the name before we did). Anyway, I have worked for the ITSO both as a resident, on assignment in the US, and now back in the UK but still keeping the same role. We cover a wide range of topics, and if there are any questions that you have about IBM Redbooks then feel free to ask me, and I will do my best to answer them or point you in the correct direction – hopefully !
