About

My Name is Aruna Prasad Lakmal, the author of www.techcrumble.net. I’m currently working as a Senior Virtualization engineer at Pearson, Sri Lanka.

I have 5+ years of experience in Microsoft, VMware Virtualization and Datacenter technologies. I’m really interested in Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Storage, Infrastructure and Datacenter technologies.

I always try to renew my technological knowledge by testing new technologies and white paper readings and so on. Initially, I started this blog as a personal knowledge base and I started to write articles for a wider audience after sometime. I was really in love with VMware technologies and I started studying alone, I attended to the training. I had to do a lot alone and there was no one to help me and guide me to find my own passion. I stared to read the articles and whitepapers in the internet. So I decided to start this blog and I think this piece of space is a really good place to share my experience and the knowledge that I gain through out my career. It’s really hard to write articles with my busy lifestyle but however I manage to find some time to write couple of articles as possible as I can.
Also, I’m holding few industry certificates and planning to gain some more in the future. I have been awarded as the VMWare vExpert for the year of 2017.

If I’m not working most probably I’m reading some articles and books, blogging, watching movies and spending some time with my lovely family. I have a lovely wife and she is always right next to me when I need the most.
