About

My name is Jaap Wesselius and I’m working as an independant consultant in The Netherlands and I’m focussing on Microsoft business productivity solutions with Microsoft Exchange server, Lync server and Office 365 and related Microsoft online solutions. Besides the normal Enterprise environments I also do a lot of work of hosting companies around the world, a role that has brought me to many places 🙂
After getting my Bachelor Degree in 1990 (Applied Physics) I accidentally got a job in IT on a helpdesk at Turmac Tobacco Company which later became Rothmans (if I recall correctly). Later in the nineties I worked at the Delft University of Technology and Akam Expertise. In those days I also did a part-time study ‘Informatiekunde’ at the Haagsche Hogeschool in The Hague. Both at the University and Akam Expertise I was involved in Windows projects (NT 3.51 and 4.0) but thing really started to fly when I joined Microsoft in 1997. At first in Premier Support and later on at MCS, but in both departments I did mainly Exchange related projects. Early 2006 I left Microsoft to become an independent consultant. Because of my work for the (Exchange) community I was awarded with an MVP award for Exchange Server in 2007, and award I still hold in 2012. Being an MVP and author of the book “Exchange 2010 – A practical approach” (available as a free e-book download or as a paperback on Amazon.com) means I’m involved in all kinds of early adopter and Technology Adoption Programs (TAP). Very nice to do indeed, but at the same time it means I’m always busy with projects and get up-to-speed with new versions of Exchange Server. I’m also an author of Exchange, Virtualization and Office 365 articles which are published on the English site Simple-Talk. I’m a regular presenter, I do local sessions on Dutch community events, but have been doing sessions at TEC2010 in Berlin, TEC2011 in Frankfurt and TEC2012 in Barcelona. In 2012 I have presented “Load balancing in Exchange 2010″, both at TechEd NA in Orlando, TechEd EMEA in Amsterdam, the Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) in Orlando in September 2012 and at TEC Europe in Barcelona in October 2012. At TechEd Europe in 2013 (Madrid) I delivered a session on “Get your Mailbox moving” and at MEC 2014 I delivered a session on “Backup, Restore and Disaster Recovery” in Exchange 2013. Oh, and let’s not forget Connections 2013 in Las Vegas where I presented two sessions on “Backup, Restore and Disaster Recovery” and “High Availability in Exchange 2013″. At Connections 2014 (again in Las Vegas) I’ll be presenting on Autodiscover and PowerShell Tips and Tricks (a session I’ll co-present with Michel de Rooij) You can contact me by e-mail at mail@jaapwesselius.nl, or follow me on Twitter via @jaapwess.
