Unix Systems Engineer
Hello, everyone. I am a pSeries and Storage Architect in Addison, Tx, a suburb of Dallas.

I've been a Unix engineer for 16 years, specializing in IBM RS6000/pSeries and AIX for the last nine years. I also support a number of Linux on Power installations.

My specialty is highly available and virtual environments, usually is support of Oracle and/or SAP. DB2 is occasionally in the mix.

I do some pre-sales work - normally requirements validation and technology presentations, but mostly I focus on solution design and implementation.

My first Linux "server" was on a "brand new" x386 on the 0.93 Beta kernel, back when X was wo primitive and Linux so unheard of that monitors didn't report their sync freqs. You needed an o-scope to figure it out.

That and there was no such thing as a "distribution". Everything was manually compiled and installed. Things have changed alot in 13 years.

Hello, everyone I am from Ethiopia where there is 100 percent dominance of commercial products[ of MS Windows]. FOSS is rarely mentioned let alone used here in Ethiopia. I'm working in a computer science college as LINUX admin and instructor of UNIX using linux. I hope I would be benefited a lot from you to serve others.

I would gladly accept any material ..
