The past couple of months have been very busy for the technical team here at Celerity, as an abundance of certification exams have been completed and passed!
Celerity would like to give special mention to Principal Technical Consultant Darren Sanders on achieving the IBM Certified Specialist – High-End Tape Technical Solutions V9, System Storage DS8000 Technical Solutions V5 and Flash Technical Solutions V2 exams!
The High-End Tape Technical Solutions V9 certification enables the successful specialist to perform requirements analysis, architecture development/solution design, planning/installation and basic post installation support for enterprise tape solutions. The exam provides detailed technical knowledge of IBM high-end tape products, technologies and solutions as well as the skills to architect solutions to meet customer requirements.
The System Storage DS8000 Technical Solutions V5 certification provides the specialist with the skills to provide pre-sales technical support, solution design and implementation planning for the DS8000 in an open systems and/or IBM z Systems mainframe environment.
Darren’s achievement of passing the Flash Technical Solutions V2 certification provides him with the knowledge to gather customer needs, understand business requirements, participate in the design process, select storage products and articulate the benefits of IBM Flash. Darren has a broad industry knowledge of storage features and functions, industry-wide terminology, and specific IBM storage solutions including software defined environments within the overall IBM portfolio and a good understanding of competitive Flash offerings.
Congratulations on your achievements Darren!
