About Adam Jones

Adam Jones is the EMC Converged Infrastructure Discipline Lead for the Americas and a VCE Master Engineer. His expertise is in storage, high speed connectivity and VMware performance engineering on some of the world’s largest Converged Infrastructure environments. One of his many achievements is that he was selected by VCE Executive Management in 2013 to be accepted into the Master Engineer Program in order to prepare for the Distinguished Engineer designation.

Adam has spent the majority of his career seeking distinct opportunities to solve complex scenarios that bring together cross platform and disciplines in engineering. Within this approach, Adam believes that complex obstacles push our boundaries to produce greatness.
