Hi, my name is Sainath KEV from Sydney, Australia. I am a Directory Services MVP since 2009. I work for Avanade as Infrastructure Consultant specializing on Microsoft Infrastructure Services.

I have authored and reviewed Microsoft Operations Framework for Directory Services, Windows Server, Hyper-v and DNS. I am a Moderator for TechNet Windows Server Forums and Windows Networking Forums.

Besides your work on TechNet Wiki, where do you contribute?(Note: such as blogs or forums.)

I contribute in Windows Server Forums, Windows Networking Forums, Sysinternal Forums and occasionally in OSRonline (WinDbg) forums.

I speak for SWUG . I blog at both TechNet Wiki and my personal blog http://www.windowsarchitecture.wordpress.com

 

What is TechNet Wiki for? Who is it for?

Centralized database with several distinct Infrastructure live scenarios, which implements Microsoft Infrastructure Services and provides ITPRO's with practical knowledge. It’s a superset of TechNet product documentation. TechNet Wiki Is for anyone who wish to learn about Microsoft Infrastructure products or learn on specific feature with interactive screen shots and provides great source of information.

  

What is it about TechNet Wiki that interests you?

TechNet Wiki allows Authors to write Practical scenarios and provides medium to articulate about features which helps ITPROs to implement and design Infrastructures better!.

Wiki  provides various Solutions, Designs and different ways of configuring a specific technology.

  

On what Wiki articles do you spend most of your time?

Directory Services , ADFS, Identity Security , AD DS Designing, PKI , System Center Products minus SCCM , Windows Internals and File system drivers. 

  

What are your top 5 favorite Wiki articles?

As a TechNet Author , I have started authoring on Windows 8 primarily focusing on Security and Identity management. I have so far authored 33 articles since the nomination. Below are my favorite articles.

Who has impressed you in the Wiki community, and why?

Everyone who writes great content which helps rest of the ITPRO impress me and motivates me to write content. Authoring is my passion, it provides great platform to share knowledge and enables Authors to think in different dimensions. 

 

What does success look like for TechNet Wiki?

TechNet Wiki should be one stop for any technology which provide great source of practical implementation scenarios with different Infrastructures being discussed. When combined with Infra and Code, wiki would be a great success!

 

Do you have any comments for product groups about TechNet Wiki?

More Scenarios for core infrastructure services would help to understand the product better.  Windows Server 2012 has opened doors for several new features which requires a strong foundation and different architectural skills to design better infrastructures.
