About me

An engineer from Bratislava, Slovakia

During the years working with network and general data center technologies I have been in nearly all positions you can think of starting with network support, engineer, cisco training instructor, consultant to network architect. Despite deeply network focused, I will always remain a "tinkerer" and hold to my inner geek trying to remain universally educated in other fields including programming, linux, web development (e.g. in the past Wordpress/PHP and recently Django and little bit of WueJS), DevOps, HW design and recently picked up computer vision and deep learning technologies. There have been many situations in my carrier that especially the knowledge outside of network focus played a crucial role in making a project successful.

In addition, I actually have worked in customer facing roles and done some part-time consulting. I know how to present technical work and in general can be relied to keep professional relationships.

Linux administrator 70%

My Experiences

Previous companies and my tasks

Hewlett-Packard / DXC.Technology :
Senior Cloud Network Engineer 2016 Jul - present

In this position I worked for cloud offering developing new solutions for our portfolio ranging from minor automation improvements, to broader development of new features by deploying SDN/NFV technologies like Nuage, vmware NSX-T, and integrating even traditional appliance vendors into the cloud using VMs and API.

Hewlett-Packard :
Network Architect for large customer's CTO office 2014 April - 2016 Jun

Here I got to be thrown in the water directly working with the customer and being a dedicated "go to" person for anything network related to match customer high-level needs, issues or ambitions to the network portfolio of my company and sometimes hacking my way beyound it.

Hewlett-Packard :
Senior Network Engineer 2011 March - 2014 March

Working in datacenter environments of large customers mostly in German/Switzerland. Work varied from standard deployments to working (and repairing) Architecture solutions handed down from quick&dirty pre-sales phases. Also several large Cisco to HP (H3C/3Com) hardware migrations spearheaded by our team.

Cisco Courses Instructor 2009 Jun - 2011 March

"Peter worked as Network Architect in my Team for an enterprise outsourcing customer in utility business. He brought a lot of added value to the team through excellent technical expertise in network architecture, technology and his good interpersonal skills in client management. During the two years he worked with me he could establish himself as trusted advisor for the client shaping and supporting strategic technology decsions of the client. He was able to work on all levels from high level designs to detailed technology low level designs, coordination and implementation work with HPE engineers. I appreciate him as a great colleague and wish him the best in the new position."
