IT has always been a personal interest.
First more of a support base in diverse applications and small business software.
Then I took it to the next step and now I’m an Engineer in an environment of 600+ servers (in a team of around 30 technical engineers).
I've teached for cvo leerstad for 2 years, 2 evenings in a week, primarily in Windows, but also Linux (Ubuntu, Centos).
Everyday I find myself working/testing with the following software:
Windows Server 2003 – 2012R2
Vmware / HyperV / Active Directory / Exchange
Kerio / Powershell / Centos / Ubuntu / Fortigate
HP Servers / HP switches / Zabbix / Microsoft SQL Server
Aside doing everyday tasks in creating/deleting users and helping users solving strange bugs, i've also completed follwoing projects:
Note that these projects are accomplished in a team that consists of the following: Project Team, Network team, System Team, Server Team, External Partners.
We were unable to update our sharepoint 2010 to SP2. So i've decided to setup a new cluster: sharepoint 2010 SP2 cluster and migrate all the solutions/contentdatabases of around 2000 users;
Maintaining a citrix farm of around 35 servers;
Migrate existing printer to Uniflow (Canon);
Write custom Powershell Scripts for backup/restore sql databases;
Write custom Powershell Scripts for CMDB Tool to automate import/exports via RESTAPI;
Started Innovation project to replace HP Terminal clients with raspberry pi's to connect to a citrix farm;
Design/Setup of an 3-node elastic cluster
In my spare time i also do IT projects on my own:
I've migrated an international traveling company infrastructure to Azure cloud. All Sites (Netherlands, Germany and Belgium) are connected with vpn's. All the user profiles and user data are migrated to a new domain with permissions kept in place. Setup of a load balanced, 5 hosts RDS Farm. Writing of a custom powershell script that shutdowns hosts to save $ in the cloud. Everything is monitorred with a zabbix server using auto discovery.
Maintaining a citrix xenapp 6.5 with 3 nodes.
Designing small kmo network (1-50) users.
Optimizing Fortigates on IPS filtering, CPU and memory, ipsec vpn's,...
