After his apprenticeship as a qualified IT specialist in system integrations and employment as system administrator Daniel started his career as consultant in 2012. After more than 4 years Linux and Open Source Backup Consulting he decided to explore the world of monitoring and system management/automation. Since April 2017 he has been working as part of the professional service team of NETWAYS Gmbh. His topics as senior consultant are elastic stack, Graylog, Icinga 2 and Bareos. If he is not travelling through the world helping other people, he loves to do some beekeeping and gardening stuff.

During his work as Lead Support Engineer and Senior Consultant at Netways GmbH Thomas has seen, set up, and fixed many issues with many different setups of Icinga 2, Elastic Stack and several other Open Source tools. He is one of the authors of the Icinga 2 book as well.
