This website is run by Stefan Roth. I work at Die Mobiliar in Switzerland as a Cloud Engineer driving towards the cloud. The Mobiliar, founded in Bern in 1826, is the oldest private insurance company in Switzerland. It is still anchored as a cooperative. Before I worked at itnetX AG, a consulting and engineering company located in Bern/Switzerland which has been awarded five times in a row by Microsoft as “Partner of the Year 2011 – Datacenter”, “Partner of the Year 2012 – Datacenter”, “Partner of the Year 2013 – Datacenter”, “Partner of the Year 2014 – Datacenter” and “Partner of the Year 2015 – Cloud Platform” . I was more focused on Microsoft Technologies, especially Microsoft Private Cloud Solutions, Microsoft System Center and Microsoft Virtualization.
I have over 18 years of experience working in IT. Before becoming a consultant I worked as a System Engineer for multiple companies. I am consulting customers on designing, implementing, improve, upgrade and update System Center Operations Manager, Operations Management Suite (OMS) and Active Directory environments. In addition I am focused on automation using PowerShell, SMA and Azure Automation. Besides that, I like to explore C# and try to build useful tools.
I have contributed to the book Mastering Windows Server 2012 R2 (Sybex) and I like to speak on events about new technologies and showing how to solve real world problems.
Besides the regular certifications (MCSA, MCSE, MCITP Enterprise and others) I am also certified for SCOM 2007 (System Center Operations Manager) and also MCSE: Private Cloud certification and MCSA: Windows Server 2012 .
In 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 I received the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Cloud and Datacenter Management (CDM). Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals are technology and community leaders recognized by Microsoft. The group of approximately 4000 people worldwide is highly appreciated by Microsoft and as a result, participates closely in development and test processes.
