About the Reviewers

Darrel Clute is an IT Infrastructure Architect. Throughout his career, he has been predominately focused on network engineering, but has spent equal amounts of time on systems engineering, primarily with UNIX-based systems. Besides his employment, he is also an advocate for open source software used in the enterprise as well as for individuals, but will never advocate the use of open source purely for the sake of it.

Outside his core competencies, Darrel also has extensive experience with proprietary and open source virtualization platforms. His knowledge and experience in IaaS solutions such as OpenStack are constantly increasing as well. Additionally, through his systems engineering experience, he has been exposed to and supported various web and enterprise applications. The most recent exposure has been to PaaS solutions, and this has led to advocation that either a public or private cloud offering is not complete without a coupling of both Iaas and PaaS solutions designed and deployed in lockstep.

Besides core infrastructure, he has, at various times, and especially more so recently, been developing programming skills to augment his daily activities. Throughout his career, Darrel has utilized various languages and utilities to automate infrastructure. Some of his programming has been with the use of Bash, Net-SNMP, Sed, and Awk, and holistically with Python.
