I am a systems administrator with over 5 years of direct industry experience in mission critical environments.
I attended the Networking Telecommunications Engineering program at OUC in Kelowna and am well versed in both networking and systems administration. I've been employed as a systems administrator in large multi facility data centers as well as several small startups.
I have experience with many Virtualization technologies (VMware, Xensource, OpenVZ, Virtuozzo, Virtual Server, HyperV etc.), systems depoyment, automation, monitoring (SCOM, NAGIOS, Zabbix, IBM Director etc) as well as experience with SAN/NAS equipment, and enterprise backup solutions such as Tivoli Storage manager.
I'm currently doing freelance work in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada but am open to transitioning into a full time permanent roll and would be willing to relocate for the right opportunity.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via email at mezzanottej AT gmail.com for a resume and list of references.
I can vouch for Joel's abilities. I worked as a network tech at one of the datacenters where he managed internal systems. With his automation and deployment scripts you could practically run a datacenter with one person.
