About the Author

Patrik Uytterhoeven has over 16 years of experience in IT, mostly with HP Unix and Red Hat Linux. In late 2012, he joined Open-Future, a leading open source integrator and the first Zabbix reseller and training partner in Belgium. When Patrik joined Open-Future, also became a Zabbix Certified Trainer. Since then, he has provided training and public demonstrations around the world, from Belgium to America and Asia. The next step was to author a book, so the first Zabbix cookbook was born. Because Patrik also has a deep interest in configuration management, he wrote some Ansible roles. Patrik is also a technical reviewer of Learning Ansible and Ansible Configuration Management, both published by Packt Publishing.

Rihards Olups has over 15 years of experience in IT, most of it with open source solutions. Previously employed by a government agency, he was mostly involved in open source software deployment, ranging from server to desktop-grade software, with a big emphasis on Zabbix. Later, he joined Zabbix SIA. While at Zabbix, he helped Zabbix users and customers get the most value out of the monitoring tool and was responsible for delivering Zabbix training sessions. He started working on the very first book on Zabbix, Zabbix 1.8 Network Monitoring, before joining Zabbix, and he finalized that book with even more in-depth details while helping advance Zabbix.
