Alongside the other members of the computing group, my job involves the installation, configuration and maintenance of the various IT systems used at the CBU, including our network infrastructure (Cisco, Arista), network data storage (Nexenta, Isilon, NetApp), a diverse server environment (Linux, Solaris, Windows, VMWare), and our high performance compute cluster (Linux, Xcat, Torque). I also provide support for Windows and Macintosh desktop machines, scientific software, and fMRI data analysis.
