Greg Curry - Computer Network Engineer / Software Developer.|
Serving the Greater Milwaukee Area / SE Wisconsin.

You can also find me on Linked In.
I've been an IT Professional for over 25 years now, primarily focused on security, network layer, virtualization, core infrastructure. With additional skills in coding and database design. My goal is to continue learning as much as is humanly possible about computer networks and software development, remain on the cutting edge of technology, and get my hands on lots of cool gear!
Expert at planning and executing complex migrations and upgrade projects, with a focus on minimizing risk and down time. My projects benefit from a unique perspective gained through vast experience across all layers of computer technology and electronics, from hardware design, software development, to network design and security. (An understanding from the quantum realm, to circuit design, up through application development)
Emphasis on Redundancy / DR / Backups as a critical priority for business: Why bother putting any time into a production environment if you could loose it all? My Philosophy: Redundancy and Backups are more important than production!
Admitted 'benchmark junkie', to fully burn in and evaluate performance and reliability of any and all systems I get my hands on (with decades of test results to compare against).
