About the Author
Iwan Hoogendoorn started his IT career in 1999 as a help desk agent. He began learning Microsoft products and obtained MCP, MCSA, MCDBA, and MCSE certifications.
While working as a Microsoft Systems Engineer, he developed additional skills and knowledge in computer networking with Cisco products. He dreamed of working for Cisco but first needed to finish his bachelor's degree in ICT, which he completed in 2009.
In 2010, Iwan began working for his dream company, Cisco. After finishing his master's degree in computer science at the University of Amsterdam and becoming a CCIE (#13084) in six different technology areas, he wanted to learn something new and network virtualization was the next logical step.
Iwan decided to learn VMware NSX and got the opportunity to work for VMware in 2016 as a Senior NSX PSO Consultant. In his time at VMware, he gained more knowledge on private and public clouds and the related products that VMware developed to build the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).
After working for four years as a Senior NSX PSO Consultant (primarily with VMware NSX-v and NSX-T), Iwan was promoted to Staff SDDC Consultant focusing on the full SDDC stack, including Hyperscaler offerings on public clouds such as AWS (VMC on AWS), Microsoft (Azure VMware Solution), and Google (Google Cloud VMware Engine).
Iwan is certified on multiple VMware products, including NSX, and is actively working with VMware certification to develop network-related exams for VMware. He is also AWS and TOGAF certified.
