Brent Salisbury’s Bio
My name is Brent Salisbury and I work for a state Unviersity as a Network Architect where I did my undergrad. We have a large patient care hospital along with academic, research and various data centers at the University. Along with University business, I spend a great deal of time with some friends around the state, working on building a statewide regional network for R&E. I have been a CCIE#11972 since 2004ish. I served in the Marine Corps and was exposed as a youngster to some of the best leadership and brotherhood out there.
I have gotten so much from colleagues, peers and random acts of really nice people in the industry, I hope to contribute back a crumb that I have received.
I am interested in disruptive technologies. I believe that is one of the core tenants of computing; more with less.
Most importantly, I have an amazing wife Leslie, family and kitties (cats not kids), who put up with the nerd alerts 24×7.
My nick is /nick networkstatic IRC on irc.freenode.net channel. I hang in the following rooms #packetpushers,#openstack #openflow & #openvswitch. Stop by and say hi and get involved in the community!
Forgive delayed responses to comments or direct messages on Twitter and email. The wifey has to get I/O somewhere in there because she is the best thing that ever happened to me and even more important than my computer. For most nerds that is saying a lot.
Networks are the spine of computing ubiquity that will change mankind. Get involved!
Public disclosure is required by certain programs, events, vendors, and the FCC. Furthermore, I believe in “blogging with integrity” (yes, I have signed the pledge) such that my readers should be able to trust what I write as my own opinion, and be able to discern anything promotional. I promise to make disclosures on individual pages where appropriate, and to only endorse products and services which I believe in.
My employer(s) do not and can not certify or endorse products, services, or vendors. Any implied or explicit instance of this is done by me as myself. Evaluations and testing I conduct in conjunction with my employer(s) are done in accordance with applicable procurement laws and policies. Disclosures of testing equipment, methodologies, and parameters in my writings are done so results can be reproduced and do not constitute endorsement.
I do reserve the right to change my mind about everything, as I learn more or have convincing discussions with others. I do not believe in revisionist blogging, and will not delete blog posts except under extreme circumstances.
As an independent consultant I attended Gestalt IT’s Networking Field Day 4 in October 2012. While I received no compensation for attending, my transportation, meals, and hotel were provided.
