About me

Luca Dell'Oca

Hi, my name is Luca Dell’Oca , the author of virtualtothecore.com. Welcome to my blog!

Born 1975, I live in Varese, Northern Italy, and I work as EMEA Cloud Architect at Veeam Software.

I work in IT since 2000. Before my fall in love with virtualization in 2006, I have earned a solid background in Information Security (in 2004 I gained the prestigious CISSP security certification, as well as ISECOM OPSA and ISO27001) , and even before I was a system administrator on both Windows and Linux platforms.

I’m very active in the VMware community; besides this blog I’m one of the founders of the Italian VMware User Group (VMUG.IT) and a TOP100 contributor to VMware Technology Network. In 2011 I received the vExpert award for my commitment to the promotion of virtualization and Cloud Computing. The award has been confirmed in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
