Every sysadmin is equal parts scientist and commando.

I tune for performance, demand SSL connections, and gently encourage users to choose a strong password.

My recent roles have revolved around DevOps principles, facilitating the release engineering process and automating infrastructure and code deployments.

Automating, measuring and scaling are the cornerstones of my philosophy toward architecting systems and applications.

comment Concerns of simultaneous failure of SSD Raid1
Sure, but you're taking backups and you have a high-availability setup in your environment so at worst you have to source new hardware and restore from backups while your other HA pair server handles requests.
