I have worked in radio and networking for over 11 years as a military member. This experience includes working as a Tech Controller and Manager of a Network Operations Center (conducting end to end Quality Control testing of Analog and Digital circuits, trunks, and links), Radio repair technician, and SATCOM/Wide-band operator/maintainer.
My civilian background includes working as a bench testing RF Technician working with RF power supplies for lasers, Quality Engineering Aide (conducting forensic investigation of control electronic systems, testing & troubleshooting electronics systems, computer support, and technical writing) for Aircraft Control Systems, and Environmental Systems Technician (conducting preventative and corrective maintenance of visual landing systems, Power Conditioning Systems, Engine Generators, HVAC, Security Systems, and Fire Systems) in support of Air Traffic.
I first heard about Linux in 2002 from a friend whose father suggested that he learn it. He, of course, suggested that I learn it too. Unfortunately, it took me until I was laid off in 2007 and was forced to change majors from Electrical Engineering to Information Technology that I found myself in Mr. Schoemaker's UNIX/Linux class. I fell in love with Linux IMMEDIATELY!! Sadly, life isn't as easy as 1, 2, 3, and so I have been absent from the Linux world since 2009 and have not been able to hone my skills.
I now have an AAS in IT Networking Infrastructure and Security and am working on my BS in Information Security.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
