I appreciate the honor I have received as a recipient of the Microsoft MVP award. I'm also deeply grateful to the clustering technical community for their support and recognition of my work.
San Mateo, CA (Vocus) May 10, 2010
SteelEye Technology, Inc. (steeleye.com), a leading provider of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions for multi-vendor IT infrastructures, today announced that Dave Bermingham, director of product management, received the Microsoft MVP Award for his work in the cluster technical community.
Microsoft gives its MVP Award to exceptional technical leaders who share their innovative, real world knowledge and contributions with others in the global IT business. Bermingham, who is active in the development of SteelEye’s core high availability and data replication technology, is one of only 13 Microsoft MVP recipients in the cluster technical community.
IT industry peers, Microsoft employees and current and past MVPs nominate candidates for the MVP honor. A panel of Microsoft employees reviews the contributions of each nominee and gauges the level of impact they had on the technical community during the past year.
Bermingham is a key player on SteelEye’s DataKeeper for Windows product development team. He holds numerous industry certifications and most recently became a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist in Server Virtualization. Bermingham also participates in the Microsoft newsgroup community and has extensive experience working with Hyper-V, Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering and cloud computing.
In addition, Bermingham is well known in the clustering community for his blog, Clustering for Mere Mortals (http://clusteringformeremortals.com).
“I enjoy sharing my experiences and helping others in the clustering community as they expand and enhance their use of technology. The feedback I receive from my colleagues is incredibly helpful. Without their input, I would not have received the Microsoft MVP award,” said Bermingham. “I appreciate the honor I have received as a recipient of the Microsoft MVP award. I’m also deeply grateful to the clustering technical community for their support and recognition of my work.”
Bermingham has won accolades for his work from SteelEye customers, including Carroll Hospital Center in Westminster, Md., which last year installed SteelEye DataKeeper Cluster Edition for protection of its electronic medical records.
“When SteelEye came to Carroll Hospital Center for the deployment of its DataKeeper Cluster Edition solution, Dave was here for every step of the process. Not only is Dave very knowledgeable about the unique demands and requirements for Microsoft Clusters, he listened to our concerns, addressed our specific needs and provided good insight and suggestions,” said Scott Livesay, network services technician for Carroll Hospital Center. “He did a great job implementing our DataKeeper configuration, helping us avoid costly expenditures associated with protecting critical data and ensuring electronic medical records are always accessible in the event of any downtime.”
