Department of Veterans Affairs
Senior Solaris UNIX Administrator, 6 - present
I am an on-site contractor of Kforce Government Solutions, Inc. and tasked with providing UNIX support of the critical servers that house Military Veterans information. These servers are required to be up 24x7 and available to Veterans world wide.
The environment consists of low end Ultra10s running Stronghold Apache web servers up to and including E25Ks housing critical Veterans medical records. The majority of the environment is using Hitachi storage and data replication to secondary and tertiary data centers in remote locations.
My responsibilities include providing Solaris support on multiple projects, including Technology Refresh projects, system cloning/build projects, SVS, LDOM and Solaris Zone configuration, general group knowledge transfer and communication. I am tasked with understanding new hardware and operating systems as they become available, along with the ability to support older technology due to inability to upgrade.
Additional responsibilities included trouble-shooting system issues, working with Vendors when tickets have been opened, coordinating and managing issues to ensure that all parties are notified of status and resolution.
