Consulting Services, LLC occasionally offers remote consulting by Skype and/or Web Meetings, during evenings and weekends. This work is performed on an hourly basis, with simple pay-as-you-go invoicing for instant secure payments through PayPal or PayPal's Credit Card processing. Knowing exactly what you're paying for each and every hour makes it much more likely you'll be another very happy TinkerTry customer.

Please use the email contact form below with the subject line that includes "Consulting" so we can set up 15 minutes to talk at no cost, figuring out if we're a match. My skills include server configuration, storage, networking, initial VMware ESXi/vSphere design, deployment, configuration, and backup strategies. I also help with data cloning, and tricky physical-to-virtual migrations.

I'm @paulbraren on Twitter, where I occasionally read my timeline about non-urgent stuff. I don't tend to use DMs for people I don't actually know.


Due to the tremendous volume of questions I get, I’m only able to answer publicly posted questions about items I’ve actually discussed at TinkerTry. Best to type your questions right below the relevant article, with no login required! That way, everybody benefits from seeing both your question and my response. It really helps me invest my limited spare time in helping the greatest number of people.

If you have an ESXi hardware question that isn't about the TinkerTry Supermicro SuperServer Workstation bundle that I own and have tested, I am unlikely to be able to reply to your email.

If you need tailored-for-you consulting services, see details above.

If you still prefer to send in a private email, or have a business related inquiry, please use the handy form below, which will send you a copy as well, from Thank you!
