Covers all types of server including web, e-mail, DNS as well as exprience with load balancing and high-availbility technologies.
Experience is listed in alphabetical ordered by common technology name, the year I first used the technology is listed as well.
|Apache||My web server of choice, and what most of the Internet chooses. More often than not I integrate PHP with this web server to create web sites or web applications. This performs better and is more secure than Microsofts solution (IIS).||1998|
|DJBDNS/TinyDNS||This is a DNS server or DNS caching server written by Dan Bernstein. Like BIND (below) it's for DNS servers, but it has never had the security issues that BIND has. I choose this over BIND every day.||2001|
|DNS/BIND||BIND (Berkeley Internet Name [Domain | Daemon]) is the software used by anyone and everyone who is running a name server (except for AOL). During my stay at Everdev I was responsible for running our BIND DNS servers. I'm well versed with setup/maintenence, troubleshooting, and security as it relates to DNS/BIND. I should probably mention 'nslookup' and 'whois' here but, since there's not much meat to nslookup or whois is should be sufficient to say "I know both really well, interface as well as underlying operation".||1999|
|IIS 4.0/5.0||Over six years experience with setup, configuration, performance tuning, and security and administration of MS IIS. Usage of the exposed ADSI objects to programmatically configure the server. Would rather use Apache (see above).||1998|
|HTML/XHTML||Fully familar with all aspects of standards compliant HTML/XHTML technologies with over seven years of experience.||1995|
|HTTP(S)/FTP||I'm familiar with HTTP and FTP to the lower protocol level. These are the protocols used by web servers for web pages and downloads. A solid understanding of the lower level workings is benefical to the daily web related operations. I have also written programs in C and PERL as well as plenty of web scripts (see PHP) that operated with HTTP/FTP||1995|
|POP/IMAP/SMTP||These are the technologies that operate the e-mail and messaging servers. These protocol are what drive servers like Qmail, Postfix, Exim, Sendmail and Microsoft Exchange. I have experience configuring and maintaining the previously mentioned e-mail servers as well as strong knowledge of how these protocols operate on a lower level.||1998|
|SOAP||SOAP is really an XML messasging technology built on top of other Internet protocols like HTTP or SMTP. These messages can be of any command or simple dataset which makes SOAP very versatile. SOAP also provides a common set of datatypes that make cross platform solutions almost simple.||2000|
Not alphabetical, this is order of importance.
|Switches||Connecting computers. I've worked with Cisco, HP, 3Com, and Netgear switching equipment. I'm familiar with setup and configuration of switches, trunks, and VPNs. I also have good comprehension of the inner workings of this type of equipment, which aids in preventive maintenence as well as quick resolution to problems.||1994|
|TCP/IP||The communications protocol of choice for all computer platforms. This is the technology that then entire internet related protocols were built on. I have a solid understanding of how TCP/IP operates.||1992|
|Routers||Connecting subnets. I've worked with Cisco, 3Com, Netgear, Linux, and Microsoft routing equipment. I'm familiar with building routing tables and viewing router logs to proactively prevent downtime.||1996|
|Firewalls/Gateways/Proxys||I've worked with loads of tools, pfSense, IP-COP, iptables, Squid, Nginx - even constructed my own embedded four port router device called Nucleus.||1996|
