Bilal Ahmed

Well hello there! My name is Bilal.


I spend my days currently working as a VMware & Storage Admin based in West Yorkshire. I have been in the field of IT for over 10 years, in one form or another.

I currently work with mostly Dell kit, be it their servers or their storage.

I fell in love with virtualization ages ago, I just love the idea of it. I guess its kind of like inception, a server running another server inside it ha.

I have been blogging for a while, my personal blog is

If you haven’t guessed already I am a big Batman fan!

You will find my writing style very chilled and not as serious as everyone else. I am a firm believer that what you do should be fun, and even important topics can be injected with some form of humor.

What I love about virtualization is that is always changing and dynamic, be it NSX to VSAN there is always something going on. I don’t know everything and I do not pretend to, the key for me is to keep learning everyday, and to enjoy the process.

I love to eat and eat a lot, and currently I am enjoying..running…a lot and I think it might be partly down to the fact I can get loads of cool medals!
