Nexenta - Nick Baker

Nick is a Sales Consultant for Nexenta Systems, primarily supporting pre-sales engagements in UK and Africa. He's been working in IT for far longer than he'd really like to admit, with much experience in storage solutions, storage architecture design and storage service delivery. His current focus is Nexenta's SDS (Software Defined Storage) NexentStor product line and its use in potentially challenging environments.

He's been with Nexenta since July 2012, throughout its transition from an Open Storage appliance provider to highly innovative SDS company. Following his early IT career in operations, application development and IT management Nick moved over to the IT supplier side when he joined Sun Microsystems in 1998. He held a variety of both pre and post-sales roles in Sun (and then Oracle), most of them focused on storage technologies.

Outside IT Nick's interests are mainly in amateur dramatics (performing and directing) and dinghy/yacht sailing.
