Ross Cooper-Smith


I’m an experienced IT architect with over 20 years in IT, with a primary focus on storage infrastructure and cloud solutions.  The storage market has never been more complex, and with personal experience of traditional disk arrays, hybrid arrays, all-flash and NVMe I’m always happy to advise on the relative strengths and weaknesses of each.  I’ve also been employed by hyper-converged and on-premise cloud vendors, and have assisted major organisations to achieve their strategic goals in adopting cloud technology.

Client wise, I’ve worked with organisations all over the world, quite literally as far east as Japan, and as far west as the United States.  Most clients would be in the mid to large enterprise category, however I’m comfortable discussing IT strategy for any size of organisation, from small startups, to worldwide multinationals, across a very broad range of industry sectors.  Previous clients include the legal sector, banks, oil & gas, high street retailers, public sector, local and regional government, and even nuclear power stations.
