Job Description :
The department sees this as a long-term engagement and not just a project. The type of candidate required for this opportunity is someone who has extensive experience managing the entire system, not just someone who is brought in on a project basis to migrate from one platform to another.

Provision storage for use by mainframes, virtual and physical servers and databases.
Collaborate with other IT personnel on technology and support design and issues.
Configure and manage DR replication to ensure the ability to recover systems during outage events rapidly.
\tMonitor health and utilization of systems. Perform trending and performance analysis. Provide health and performance reporting and take appropriate actions based on trends in data.

EXPERIENCE:
