Consonus today announced that IT industry veteran Mark Dustman has joined Consonus as the newest member of the Professional Services Delivery Team. Formerly a principal consultant with Symantec, Dustman has extensive experience with Veritas Storage Foundation™, Symantec Enterprise Vault™, Symantec NetBackup™ and more.

“Consonus and I share the same philosophy — business needs should drive technology decisions, not the other way around,” said Dustman. “Finding the most advantageous solution requires examining the business from a strategic, holistic perspective to see what processes and products will benefit the business as a whole. I look forward to getting in front of customers and advancing their technology strategies.”

With two decades of UNIX experience and twelve years of Windows server, storage, and performance tuning skills, Dustman has implemented multiple IT solutions focused on backup and recovery, deduplication, disaster recovery, archiving strategies, and high availability. Technical certifications include: VMware VCP, Sun Cluster 3.0, Enterprise Vault Certified Professional, and Certified Professional High Availability and Data Protection, among others.

“We are very pleased that Mark has chosen Consonus as a career path,” said Vice President of Consulting and Technology Solutions Michael Overton. “His broad, deep industry knowledge will be a great asset not only to us, but to our customers. Mark’s extensive experience with Symantec, VMware and NetApp will prove to be very instrumental in helping our customers overcome the IT challenges of data protection, information growth, and high availability.”

As a professional services consultant with Consonus, Dustman is responsible for providing and deploying technical architectures that deliver the highest value to Consonus customers. Responsibilities include:

  • Executing a wide range of engagements that focus on NetBackup, Enterprise Vault, Storage Foundation, Solaris, VMware, Oracle, HDS, and NetApp.
  • Deploying advanced product features, product upgrades, health checks, and performance assessments.
  • Overseeing knowledge transfer, customer mentoring, and advanced troubleshooting.

The addition of Dustman follows Consonus’ recent achievement of Symantec Master Specializations in four solution areas: High Availability, Archiving and eDiscovery, Data Protection, and Storage Management. Consonus has the most Symantec Master Specializations and is the first partner to attain Specialization in High Availability. This advanced knowledge coupled with industry-leading talent enables Consonus to deliver differentiated services to meet customers’ technology needs.
