I am primarily involved in the development of Infrastructure Solutions for AIX based platforms.
I also diagnose and supply solutions to customer’s problems and issues.
I also undertake the planning of installations and upgrades.
My skills also include VIO server, dedicated server and HACMP server builds.
In addition I provide day to day support of AIX Unix Servers including scheduled patching and firmware updates.
I am also involved with a variety of projects as well as day to day AIX support including providing technical consultancy
on various hardware, OS and virtualisation requirements.
I provide fast and effective response in the rolling out of operating system builds to a high standard as and when the business demands, while at all times working to the Bank’s ITIL and security policies.
In my role I also have to mentor other Contractors and customer's employees.
I can usually learn and gain knowledge of new flavours of Unix and related hardware that I am not already accustomed to very quickly. I am also a very good problem solver and I am not afraid to try something new. I am a very flexible worker and always get the job done.
