I studied information science and did computers from the old Commodore VC-20 onwards.

I started during study as pc-admin for DOS, Windows, WfW and all related software and hardware stuff.

Later I switched over to servers, starting with linux-samba and NT 3.5/4.0.

My first job made me a Solaris admin in a huge company with over 500 solaris servers. There I got every day a new interesting problem that I have never encountered before.

My next job brought me into project management and later back to system administration - mainly Linux. It was frustrating to manage a project when you knew that doing the admin`s job yourselv would have the current step finished in less than 30 minutes...

comment When to employ server failover in a virtual environment
@Thomas You want to recover within one hour while on site. Give it a test then: Can you recover your server within an hour - if no: going for a hot standby is your way.

Computing is the main purpose and redundant home-dirs with same content are tertiary goals? Why do you bother about home-dir performance?
