12+Years of experience in Infrastructure datacenter & Migration.
Should have PMP, ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library), Networking, Storage, Virtualization certification.
Experienced in Internet / Cloud / Telecom / Data Center
Strong architecture experience with operating complex n-tier distributed applications and service-oriented architecture.
Experienced in re-architect the applications to best-fit solution before migrating it into the new data center.
Experience in migrating systems and applications. Should have experience in lift and ship (as-is) hardware, VM migration, transform and migrate, moving multi peta-bytes of data across data centers.
Preparation of Architecture, Design, Engineering diagrams and documents. Present new vision and ideas to c-level leadership in the organization.
Large data center transformation and IT infrastructure design and architecture covering Compute/Servers, Virtualization and Storage architectures.
Architect and build reusable solution that can be used as a cookie cutter solution to migrate infrastructures (physical and virtual) and application within or across data centers.
Evaluate existing infrastructure and applications and come up with strategy and plan to migrate them as-is (lift and shift) or convert/modify and migrate to a new datacenter or a virtual environment or private/public cloud.
Gather capacity and performance requirements and validate them with target environment architecture. If needed discuss with Solutions/Systems Architect for a better design/solution. Share lessons learned from other migrations, best practices and drive change.
Oversee end-to-end migration of infrastructure and application migration from source datacenter to new data center. Remediate the exceptions quickly that arise during migration and enable the migration process to continue without interruptions to business continuity.
Good hands on experience in application deployment in different environments using configuration management tools such as SaltStack, Chef, Ansible, etc.
Understanding of up-to-date Network architecture concepts and system integration principles including high-end routers / switches, Network & Security, Network Virtualization, Cloud Network Deployments, and other related infrastructure and system components.
Strong knowledge in technologies like Cisco NEXUS series & Catalyst switches, Citrix/ NetScaler & F5 load balancers, ASA Firewalls etc
Expert knowledge and experience with wired, wireless networking technologies and IP based services including routing, switching (VLAN) wireless, voice (SIP), VPN (IPSec) and WAN (MPLS, Quality of Service) & IPv6.
Demonstrate in-depth knowledge of server hardware systems includes blade, traditional rack mount server systems, and virtual machines.Sound knowledge of core data center technologies like DNS,NTP, LDAP, AAA, SSL gateway, etc.
Exposure and knowledge of Standards, Policies and Legislation, e.g. ISO27001, PCI/DSS, COBIT, SOX, HIPPA, DPA, HMG SPF, etc.
Create Architecture plans & designs for deploying compute, storage, network & security technologies, data center services based on the inputs from various stake holders such as applications architects, solution designers/ISV SMEs and Data Center teams.
Evaluate and recommend options to migrate large volume of data across data centers. E.g. transferring data over wire using MPLS lines, over the Internet or disk shipping.
Perform capacity planning for network, load Analysis and understand IP requirements from ISVs, Developers and other stakeholders.
Participate as a member on architecture related discussions to ensure technology decisions best support data center migration business needs.
Participate in capacity planning, trend analysis and performance forecasting exercises and propose recommendations to meet ongoing performance and scalability demands
