About me


Hi there! and thank you for visiting my blog. Here you will be able to find not only technical articles and posts about (Hybrid) Cloud and Datacenter Solutions, but I am going to share other useful material which I believe is as important as professional knowledge in order to become successful not only at work, but also in life. I will write about the books I have read, training and studies that helped me, certifications and other topics that will come along. So you are welcome to join me and my own thoughts and learning path. Hope so that you will not only enjoy reading but it will help you to develop your skills.

Short intro: Martynas Valkunas aka MagicMarty. I am working as a Senior Cloud Solutions Architect at Elastabytes, an engineering, consulting and managed services company, based in London, UK. I am interested in Cloud and Hybrid Cloud Solutions and mainly focused on Microsoft Technologies like Microsoft Azure, Operations Management Suite (OMS), Powershell, Hyper-V, System Center and SQL Databases. Besides the certifications of MCSA: Windows Server 2012, MCPS: Microsoft Certified Professional, MS: Server Virtualization with Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center, MCITP: Database Administrator I am also a co-organiser of the UK Meetup Group – UK Cloud Infrastructure User Group. If you are based in London or just passing by, come and join us. If you would like to present in the meetup group, just let me know.

My main hobbies are playing poker, lifting weights in the gym, camping and reading books.

My motto – never stop learning and always accept new challenges!
