Whilst most of what we do here at Alexis & Associates is software based Рcontent marketing РI have recently been told of some great opportunities in a related field; becoming a Linux System Admin.

I was astonished to find out that the growth in IT infrastructure continues to grow in this nation year on year. The result of this is opportunities for careers in system administration. What is a linux system admin?

The system administrator seeks to ensure that the uptime, performance, resources, and security of the computers he or she manages meet the needs of the users, without exceeding the budget. To meet these needs, a system administrator may acquire, install, or upgrade computer components and software; provide routine automation; maintain security policies; troubleshoot; train and/or supervise staff; or offer technical support for projects.
