Service Description

Over the past 12 years I have been working in a production environment where I have worked very closely with our production teams in creating development and production environments for their applications. I have worked with everything from Tomcat to JBoss to Weblogic, and I am very comfortable with each of them. I also was the lead in transitioning our Apache servers through the different migrations from 1.3 to 2.0 to finally 2.2.

Need monitoring? I do that too. Whether its using external monitoring like pingdom.com or using Nagios on its own server, I am confident I can help you sleep at night that your server/sites are being monitored.

Researching cloud technologies is a hot button for me. I have worked with RackSpace Cloud Servers and some of the load balancing they have to offer. I have some experience with Media Temple as well, and they have come a long way!! These would be my two top choices as I understand the underlying hardware and you can see what you are getting.

Over all, I am always looking forward to the next challenge, and getting things done in a timely matter. As long as I am able to get a shell, we should be able to accomplish all your goals.

Most importantly, I understand what customer service is, and how to make sure the customer always comes first. I want to give you the confidence that your servers are in good hands.
