Behind the Screens- Meet Ignacio

Ignacio is a skilled member of our backups team. They handle the managed backup services for our clients. Ignacio says, “we’re in charge of all backup services provided to our clients. This means keeping all machines’ backups done and working fine, also detecting issues or possible problems with the client machines. Additionally, we can also restore missing [backed up] files requested by clients. [I think this has a big impact on CIO Solutions offering quality service to our clients]” 

Ignacio is originally from Guanacaste where his family lives (along with their parakeet and six dogs). He now lives in San José, Costa Rica where he has been a member of the CIO Solutions team for 7 months! He has a wide range of skills- he’s an electric automotive mechanic and is about to finish a technician certification on electric vehicles!

For fun, he enjoys playing soccer and video games and enjoying the outdoors, whether that’s mountain biking, hiking, or spending time at the beach or rivers around the area!
