I would like to offer you my deep knowledge of servers hardware and software, which allows me to fine-tune servers according to their roles, and my ability to anticipate and solve problems in shortest time possible. No Windows please, Unices only, Linux preferrable. Lately my main point of interest has shifted to deploying and maintaining web projects in cloud environments. I am developing monitoring / management tool ( http://m-script.org ) and supporting existing installations, but I am very well familiar with all well known alternatives from both monitoring and cloud management side, so no problem to implement any of them. The point is, I know very well how it works. And how it doesn't, too :) I am interested in any system administration work, especially in cloud environments. The more challenging you setup is going to be, the better. Automated scalability, cross-clouds deployments, combination of traditional and dynamically scalable resources, DNS/Geo balancing - everything is possible, just let me know your needs.
Over the last 10 years, I have been working as technical support engineer/team leader/infrastructure architect for several large companies (hosting companies with more than 1000 of dedicated and several dozens of VPS servers, ecommerce application companies, small and large companies with different cloud setups from several to several hundreds of instances) My competency lies in planning, development, deployment and setup of new production environments, troubleshooting/support/improvement of existing production systems based on Linux/Unix. Have a lot of experience in automation/monitoring/backup of different distributed environments with LAMP stack and other applications, different clustering, scalability and high-availability techniques.
