I am a technologist with nearly 20 years of network administration and desktop management experience in predominantly Novell-centric environments. I am now supporting a NOS mix of Netware, SuSE Linux, SCO Unix, and Microsoft Windows 2003 Servers and networks services including File/Print (Netware OES), Database servers (Microsoft SQL 2000/2005, MySQL, Access, Informix), desktop management (Novell Zenworks, Group Policies, Winbatch scripting/programming, Windows shell scripting), e-mail (Groupwise, PostIni, Blackberry Enterprise Server), virtualization (VMware VI3, ESXi, Workstation), tapeless backup (CommVault v8, DataDomain DeDuplication technology, LeftHand SANiQ iSCSI SAN), Disaster Recovery (vReplicator, vRanger), and monitoring (HostMonitor, MRTG, Wireshark).
I particularly enjoy finding, developing, and integrating creative solutions to unique problems utilizing cost-effective solutions such as freeware, shareware, and open source alternatives to minimize software licensing costs.
