Well...here I go! I wanted to provide some background information about myself before diving into this blog.
I'm Johanna Hislop. I've spent 14 years with IBM and over 10 of that has been with storage management software. I am part of the development team for the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center application. More specifically, I am a lead for the level 3 support team delivering fix packs and other maintenance to the field.
I have a wide breadth of knowledge regarding Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, affectionately referred to as TPC by many, but my biggest interest lies in the fabric side of things. I've worked closely with the major switch vendors over the years and thoroughly enjoy getting hands-on time with the switches. I love solving problems and the challenge of new configurations and getting things to work. I also l enjoy low-level Fibre Channel traces. That's a carry-over from my previous job on a hard disk drive development and test team, but it has come in handy for SAN management in general.
The intention of this blog is to share interesting news, activities and other random tidbits regarding Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. I hope you'll find the content of interest to you.
