Welcome – Felipe Roque

Latest posts by Felipe Roque (see all)

Welcome, everyone! My name is Felipe Roque and I have a long walk in the technology world. In this first post, the idea is to introduce myself and tell a little about my journey in the IT world!

My technical background started in high school where I graduated in electronics technician from COLTEC – Technical College of the Federal University of Minas Gerais. This course has been a turning point in my professional life, even before I went through the experience of the first formal job because it was the place where I discovered my vocation for technology. Later I graduated in Telecommunications Engineering and also in Information Systems.

My first job and internship were at IBM Brazil. A subsidiary of the multinational IBM (International Business Machines Corporation). Needless to say, IBM has more than 398,455 employees worldwide and so IBM is the largest IT company in the world. There is some kind of glamor in being an IBMer (as the officials call themselves) and breathe, literally, the whole story to which this company is responsible. I only have gratitude for my ten-year tenure in this great company. I joined the age of 17 as a trainee and was responsible for maintenance on laptops and internal desktops. Soon I began to do external services to clients with a support contract and I was evolving, going through maintenance of the most varied types of equipment such as PDVs (fiscal Printers), banking equipment (ATM machine, ATMs, Authenticating Printers, PABX) and evolved to customer service in which it was on call and served large customers with its servers and data storage equipment.

At this time the passion for which I am now a specialist was born; data storage equipment. Until then, I worked in Belo Horizonte, my hometown where I was hired. It was then that the opportunity arose and I was invited to move to São Paulo and work at IBM headquarters in Brazil and join the HRC (Hardware Resolution Center) team. In this team, we were responsible for the second and third level support of all IBM platform equipment from Intel, SAN and Storages Midrange from customers all over Brazil with an active support contract. We also made the bridge with engineering in cases of problems that needed some correction of code or bug. I am eternally grateful to have experienced this experience, through learning and the formation of what I am today as a professional. I did several technical and professional development training, went abroad several times for specializations in the product development laboratories, was awarded and recognized for my work in different ways, worked with spectacular people who were an example, mentors and whom I sought mirror, that is, only reasons for gratitude!

I found it interesting to tell you a bit about the beginning of my story so that others who are starting their career can be encouraged to fight for their goals and never give up on them. The story does not stop there, it was only the first 10 years, but for the post does not get too long, I will just make a summary of my professional profile and share the rest in another post telling about my first contact with VMware products and the world of virtualization!

In summary, I have more than 17 years of experience in the IT market, 12 of them supporting and implementing large projects and solutions involving SAN architecture, storage, and data protection solutions, virtualization and hyper-convergence. Recognized with several certifications IBM, Brocade, DellEMC, and VMware. I have a passion for storage and data transport technologies with experience and knowledge across multiple platforms and architectures, including those used in Cloud Computing, converged and hyper-convergent

I also have experience in providing technical training and mentoring, and for some years, I was an instructor at IBM Training Center in Tutóia / SP.

My specialties:
– HCI Solutions: DellEMC VxRAIL and VMware VSAN.
– VMware solutions including vSphere, SRM, vSAN, and NSX.
– DellEMC Storage Solutions include VNX, UNITY, DataDomain, RecoverPoint, VPLEX, and XtremIO.

– Datacenter Virtualization, SDDC, Cloud Computing, Networking, Storing, SAN Architecture, Hi-End Computing Platform Solutions, Storage Architecture and Solutions, Technical Training, Consulting, Blade Servers, Hyper-Convergent Computing

I really hope that this blog is a space of contribution, exchange of information, interaction and that I can share and help the community of users with a little of my experience and experience in this world which, every day, we learn a little and always we have news! I hope to achieve the goal of disseminating knowledge in a practical and didactic way! Feel free to make contributions, critiques, and suggestions! Once again, welcome and let´s get together on
this adventure !!!

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!


    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  2. After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts

  3. I think this is one of the most important information for me. And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on few general things, The website style is wonderful, the articles is really excellent : D. Good job, cheers
