Service Description

I offer free consulting so contact me with any questions on your project or feasibility!

Before doing any work I require a nice long chat on how the work will be planned. For example in system administration tasks we'll be discussing:

- Backups (and make sure they're working).
- Snapshots (if applicable).
- Lay out the full plan of install before touching a keyboard (if applicable).
- Analyze possible downtime scenarios and how to recover from them (if applicable).
- How to roll back changes to a working state.
- Verifying the changes were successful.
- Discuss monitoring options after the work is done to detect problems in the future so that you know there's a problem before your customers. 99.99% uptime percieved is 99.99% uptime achieved.
- Executing the planned changes (now this is where we start touching a keyboard).
