I have been a Unix Systems Administrator for 18 years with primary experience with HP-UX, AIX and Linux. In my current position, I help maintain a SAN running on HP P9500, 3PAR, XP24000 and XP12000 storage arrays, HP 8000 & 4000 Series EVA's and Hitachi AMS2500 array.
I help maintain our HP-UX Servers with an operating system patch management schedule done bi-annually. We are currently using HP-UX 11.31, AIX 5.3, 6.1, and RHEL 5, 6, and 7.
I am also the primary SME for HP Systems Insight Manager, which we use for managing HP servers and storage by being the easiest, simplest and least expensive way for system administrators to maximize system uptime and health.
I am the liaison between CPS Energy and Third-Party Vendors that have needs of sending and receiving encrypted data via secure PGP. We currently use version 10.1.
