Multiple systems administration roles have allowed me to confidently manage & monitor large networks of varying architectures, platforms, & network technologies. Some of the key areas I have had worked with are:
All Mac workplaces, with offsite iPad, iPhone, and Macbook management.
Computer labs – 600+ devices ranging from fixed desktops with domain logons, to tablets & laptops. System imaging & Ghost was heavily used along with image creation.
SANs – Dedicated hardware appliances with multple drives, linux servers with raid, FreeNAS
Servers – Virtualisation (KVM & VirtualBox), Windows server with active directory, Linux servers of varying distributions, OSX Server, Web servers (AWS). High availability clusters with Galera & GlusterFS.
Backups – Automated backup shell scripts, rotating failsafe storage methods, complex rsync scripts using comparisons to use minimal bandwidth.
Dumb terminals – Linux thin clients connecting to a Windows Terminal Server
Data migration – Website transfers, mysql databases, storage upgrades, amalgamation of servers.
Cloud connected digital content distribution platform for digital signage, digital menu boards, & custom developed information panels (apps). All developed with a few primary goals:
Bring amazing features to the client that previously required custom development for each scenario.
Synchronise real-time content across multiple players & sites automatically – with no technical knowledge needed.
Make it easier for everyone by reducing complexity that plagues other systems, resulting in much lower costs to the client & the business
Signchro consists of 3 primary components – Media Player, Cloud CMS (signchro.net), Remote Control – which are detailed below:
Cloud CMS (signchro.net)
Content creation & player management interface for the client to create their own shows. Based around the WYSIWYG idea, clients can drag components to where they require within their displays. A built in content library allows for rapid content creation with very little training or graphic knowledge. Hosted on a server cluster powered by MariaDB Galera & GlusterFS.
