Questions

Who is Daniel Zuthof?

I am an IT enthusiast living in Enschede with my wife and 2 young kids. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family, friends, ride my motorcycle and road bike as often as possible.

After finishing school at age 20 I started working at several employers of which all are in IT. The first was at a local IT firm in the city I lived in at the time. Afterwards I worked at several larger businesses in the Arnhem and Utrecht area. Before starting at Equinix, I worked in the IT department of the hospital in Enschede as senior systems engineer.


Can you tell us something about your employer/company?

I work at the Managed Services department at Equinix. Equinix is the world largest suppliers of carrier neutral datacenters and operates 145+ datacenters across 5 continents in 40 metro areas. In The Netherlands, Equinix operates 10 datacenters of which 1 is currently being build.

The main business consists of housing, inter rack connections, inter metro area connections, inter country connections, direct public cloud connections (Equinix Cloud Exchange) and internet connections.

The Managed Services department designs, builds, operates and supports IaaS and PaaS platforms for customers inside our own datacenters. Besides building dedicated platforms according to customers specifications we also operate our own Equinix Business Cloud (EBC) IaaS platform, which is located in 3 datacenters across The Netherlands. Other products we sell are security & storage solutions and back-up &  replication services.

Questions

Who is Mark Brookfield?

I’m an IT architect who’s been in IT for eighteen years. I’ve lived in the UK, the US, and currently I live in The Netherlands.

I don’t see what I do as “work” or “my job” – it’s something I do that people are kind enough to pay me for. I’m almost tempted to say I’d do my job for free, but I don’t want to give my boss any ideas…

Can you tell us something about your employer/company?

My current role is Technical Evangelist for NIU, a managed services provider in the UK. I report directly to the CTO and am tasked with finding new and innovative ways in which technology can make the business more successful. Fortunately, I’m not “hands-on” operational anymore, so I don’t break as much stuff 😉

NIU designs and builds solutions for a wide-range of clients, ranging from financial services to retail. We have approximately two hundred employees and our headquarters is in central London.
