Bio

Really enjoy working with Cisco UCS. Have first UCS certification and working on CCNA. Plan on getting all the UCS certifications. Happy to help people with UCS, but if I am slow to get back to you, I am pretty busy and do miss stuff sometimes. Just send again :)

Working on my UCS site http://realworlducs.com/ and post everything I am doing there. Lots of interesting projects up there.

Craig
