Ethan Banks On productivity.



My name is Ethan Banks. I have a BSCS and spent 20+ years in enterprise IT. I’ve operated data centers with a special focus on infrastructure. I’ve been a CNE, MCSE, CEH, CCNA, CCNP, CCSP, and CCIE R&S #20655.

I’m the co-founder of Packet Pushers Interactive where I write and podcast about deeply technical topics for IT architects & engineers. Subscribe to all of the free news and blogs created by me and other professionals like …

… all at the Packet Pushers Network. Seriously, if you’re in IT, Packet Pushers will help with your professional career development. Good material that we work hard on.

Speaking of working hard, I wrote a book with Russ White called, “Computer Networking Problems and Solutions: An innovative approach to building resilient, modern networks.” We’d appreciate it if you’d buy the book. That would be swell of you.
