Systems Alliance Hires Former Sun Microsystems Desktop Virtualization Expert Jefferi V. Holland
Systems Alliance, Inc., a regional systems integrator providing high-value IT and business consulting services, today announced Jefferi V. Holland, formerly a senior desktop virtualization specialist and senior pre-sales engineer with Sun Microsystems, has joined the company as a senior technical architect. With nearly 25 years of experience, Holland will lead the expansion of Systems Alliance’s consulting practice focused on desktop virtualization and thin-client computing.

“Apart from his engineering expertise with Sun and VMware technologies, Jeff Holland has earned an outstanding reputation for delivering well-designed Sun VDI solutions at some of the nation’s largest enterprises,” said Ric Hughes, president and CEO Systems Alliance. “We’re very pleased to have Jeff join the Systems Alliance team and help us build a thriving desktop virtualization practice.”

Before joining Systems Alliance, Holland was an 11-year employee of Sun Microsystems, where for the past five years he was a senior technical specialist for the US Software Practice, responsible for architecting, recommending and deploying Sun’s virtual desktop technology. In this role, Holland developed virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions for commercial and public-sector clients including United Airlines, Detroit Water and Sewage and the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital.

Prior to Sun, Holland was manager of engineering computer services at the University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Engineering, a systems engineer for Bundy Corporation, and an engineer at General Dynamics Land Systems Division Vehicle Systems Laboratory. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Detroit Mercy.

As businesses seek options for dramatically improving the economics and performance of their computing environments, many are rethinking the merits of the traditional Windows PC-based desktops. Leveraging software from Sun and VMware, Sun Ray thin clients, and ultra-efficient Sun infrastructure, Systems Alliance will deliver full-blown Windows XP or Vista desktops, as well as Linux or Solaris desktops that are far more secure, easier to manage and much more cost effective for its clients.
