About Jonathan Wilding

Jonathan has been Head of Technical Services at Trams since 2009 with the takeover of Rapid Group plc. Prior to this Jonathan worked at the Institute of Cancer Research in mainstream IT. In a bid to broaden his horizons across different disciplines as a Systems Integrator (SI) Jonathan joined Rapid Group in 2001.

Over the years that Jonathan has been part of the Trams team he has become the foremost authority on Quantum StorNext (and XSan) and StorNext Storage Manager Systems Integrations in EMEA (and possibly worldwide). Jonathan, also has over 10 years experience of Macintosh Systems integration, with a bias towards Active Directory integration, Mac system lockdown and management using centralised, directory based, tools.

He has consulted on projects for some of the best known brands and organisations in the world, from global sports brands to international broadcasters and even leading fashion houses. He has worked on projects that range from a few desktops to multi-petabyte solutions involving millions of £’s of customer collateral.

His specialities include Quantum StorNext Filesystem and Quantum Storage Manager integration; blending diverse operating systems in StorNext environments with XSan and Active Directory; design and implementation of very large StorNext multi-terabyte and petabyte storage solutions with CDP and data replication.

As part of the Trams team Jonathan is Winner of the Quantum 'Big Data" Value Added Reseller Award 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 for EMEA. In 2014 he was also individually named as Quantum StorNext Champion of the Year EMEA.

Jonathan is always seeking interesting new StorNext and SAN projects to engage upon. His uncompromising approach to any project he is involved means the client always knows where they stand, what they can expect technically and performance-wise from the solution proposed and how the new system will improve workflows and deliver ROI.

Jonathan’s high-level of personal and professional involvement in any project he is engaged upon, at every stage from design, to install, to integration and post-implementation support, has resulted in him becoming a highly valued addition to every customer’s project team.

Customer Feedback

“This doesn’t get said often enough but I just wanted to let you know how indispensable and dedicated Jonathan has been during the StorNext project implementation. It really means a lot for us to have someone you can rely on for guidance with a wealth of knowledge like that.”

(Infrastructure Project Manager, Global Fashion Brand)

“Finally deployed the latest (Quantum) M441 today. Anyway, I ran into a problem, and guiltily called Jonathan - and disturbed him on a Sunday. 20 mins after speaking things through with him, the problem is gone, and I have saved many hours of work going to waste, thanks to his time. Eternally grateful for this. This type of amazing support is so rare to get from others, and so greatly appreciated.”

(Engineering Director, WPP-owned Global Company)
