Welcome to!
This is my own website, the content and views are entirely my own.
I live and work in the Midlands in the UK. I'm currently working as Linux Systems Team Leader, but I may be interested in any offers.
I've worked in the IT related industry for over 15 years, before that I worked in the Broadcast & Cable TV industry and Higher Education sectors.
Currently my work is all Linux based, mostly remote data centre work for an online service provider using mostly SuperMicro but a few HP servers, these all run Ubuntu Server os. Our infrastructure is fully virtualised (apart from the database servers running Percona MySQL), mostly on OpenStack infrastructure which we host and manage, with some infrastructure on Google Cloud, AWS (S3 and EC2) and Digital Ocean. My previous company used all HP servers and storage (C-class blades and EVA and MSA storage) where I was responsible for 80Tb of SAN based storage with Brocade SAN switches. I have experience of IBM's AIX 6.2 on 4 IBM p595's with DS8300, DS4800 & DS4700 SAN storage via SVC as well as Linux under VMware on IBM Blade Centres. We also had some LPARs running Red Hat on the p595 hardware and some Solaris 10 systems on V440's.
Also I have Cisco network experience, both LAN switching and WAN routing, from small 2600 routers and 2950 switches to enterprise grade 6509 chassis switches.
Further details and CV available on request.
