Cloudfix is an independent blog collaboration with a focus on virtualization, storage and networking. We have a strong focus on, but certainly not limited to, VMware technologies. We have a great interest in new SDDC & ITaaS technologies. We love the development on all that is Software Defined! Because we all have our own package of experience, our writing will be diverse.


We started our blog collaboration in April 2014. Since then, we are still pretty astonished to see our fan base, new and returning visitors grow steadily. We are all awarded with the VMware vExpert award for our community efforts. In 2016, we were voted #43 in the overall Top vBlog voting!




Niels Hagoort

I’m Niels Hagoort, a father of 2 and husband to 1 born in 1980 who began his journey in the ICT business around 2001. Starting off as an system administrator after my education, I like to think I gathered a fair amount of knowledge throughout the years.

I have spent my career working in the world of ISP, telco and enterprise environments. HIC is my own company from which I help my customers as a fully independent consultant/architect.

In october 2015, I successfully defended my application to become VMware VCDX #212!

In my spare time, I like to be with my wife and kids, doing fun stuff together. Next to that, I really like being on a race circuit. I’m currently following almost every sport which includes engines and wheels!


linkedintwitterProfiel_NieuwI’m Robert Verdam. I’m a 35 year, father of three beautiful girls (6,4,2 years of age). I’ve been working in IT now for about 16 years of which I’ve spent the first 9 years working as a system administrator for a local authority. In the evenings I studied to become a bachelor of ICT (HBO Hogere Informatica).

Recently I joined bConn ICT as a consultant.

My main focus is infrastructure (Storage, Networking and Computing), but I’m also very interested in designing and implementing VDI and Server Based Computing-environments.

I’ve recently completed my VCAP-DCA certification and I’m now studying towards my CCIE R&S written exam, which I try to complete this year.My hobbies are music, running and of course doing fun stuff with my kids.Please feel free to contact me anytime for questions or just to chat!

If you’re interested in my past working experience or certifications, feel free to look me up on LinkedIn. I enjoy going to the gym and during summer you’re likely to bump into me at an EDM festival.

If you have any questions or comments related to one my posts, or you just want to chit-chat about Tech in general, hit me op on Linkedin or Twitter. It’s all about sharing!

  1. Hi all,

    I work with object storage vendor SwiftStack and would like to invite you to participate in a unique charity and software test-drive program. Would you be able to provide some contact info so that I can share the details?
