I’m Luke Meyrick, a Manchester based infrastructure architect with Rackspace, where I help businesses get the best results from technology. I specialise in public and private cloud with a focus on infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and am increasingly involved in platform as a service (PaaS) as it intersects with the Rackspace product portfolio. Other specialisms include managed services, data centres, and a range of cloud-enabled services. I’m a Lead Engineer in our Critical Accounts segment.
I spend about 80% of my time advising our strategic accounts (mid-sized businesses and enterprises) on technology strategy and architecture and about 20% of my time on product and service development, mentorship and personal development.
My career has mostly been spent in operations and engineering, with a touch of product development. I’ve been hands on as well as management, looking after large teams of highly skilled engineers and architects and tens of millions in capital budget supporting hyper-growth clients. I’ve worked in systems administration, development, web development, web hosting, and ISP (business dial up, broadband and other connectivity). I most enjoy spending time with clients solving interesting problems.
In my spare time, I’m usually busy being a father to my two sons, reading, gaming, coding or hiking up hills.
