In June 2017 I joined the company ITQ Consultancy in the Netherlands. A VMware knowledge POWERHOUSE! Back then I only held a VCP5-DCV certification which was almost expiring, and up to that point, I mainly worked with compute and storage infrastructures.
When I joined ITQ my primary goal for the first year was getting more knowledge on the networking part within IT and especially getting familiar with the Software-Defined Network solution of VMware; NSX for vSphere. My secondary goal was achieving a double VCIX status (DCV and NV) within one year after I started at ITQ.
