Hi, I'm Stathis.

My name is Stathis Athanasiadis, and I am an experienced Systems Administrator. My research and engineering interests are mainly in the areas of cloud technologies, systems engineering, and general computer science.

I graduated from Portsmouth University (UK) with a master's (MSc) degree in Computer Network Administration and Management (Distinction) and a bachelor's (BEng Honours) degree in Computer Networks. I did my dissertation on -then-current- virtualization technologies and the comparison between 4 (four) hypervisors (type-1 and type-2).

Currently, I hold more than 15 certifications from ISC(2), Microsoft, Citrix, and others.

I am a perfectionist. I enjoy troubleshooting and solving complex problems cleanly. I also enjoy designing solutions to everyone's needs and implementing them using modern tools and technologies. Additionally, I was early accustomed to documenting installations and configuration procedures to allow easier maintenance, repetition, and archiving. It is not easy to remember the specific steps taken to configure a system or what change occurred 3 months ago, so instead of trying to remember I can check my journal for the relevant information.

My quest into computers and information systems started in 1988 when my parents brought home a Hyundai Super 16 TE personal computer with an Intel 8088 @ 10MHz, 640KB RAM, a 20MB HDD and MS-DOS v3.3 where I spent most of my time in DOS on a green monitor.

Now more than 30 years later I still love the feeling of sitting in front of a computer terminal.
