My name is Ethan Banks. I’m the co-founder of Packet Pushers Interactive, LLC where I write and podcast about deeply technical topics for IT architects & engineers. Read my analysis of the IT industry and hear me with various co-hosts at PacketPushers.net.
I have a BSCS and 20+ years in enterprise IT. I’ve operated data centers with a special focus on infrastructure, especially networking. I’ve been a CNE, MCSE, CEH, CCNA, CCNP, CCSP, and CCIE R&S #20655.
You might find me at infrastructure tech events like Tech Field Day, Juniper’s NXTWORK, VMware’s future:net, Cisco Live, Dell/EMC World, HPE Discover, NANOG, and the Interop ITX Future of Networking Summit, which I co-chair.
This site, ethancbanks.com, is my personal blog focused on lifestyle technology, balanced minimalism, running a new media startup, modern tech marketing, and compilations of my work. Broadly speaking, if you’re a technologist who enjoys my writing, you’ll probably like my articles here just fine.
