PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Database Administrator

Confidential

Responsibilities:

  • Administered and maintained approximately 100 database servers (backups, upgrades and maintenance plans on production and test servers, including deployments) on two campuses, many hosting multiple databases (10 or more per server) on the Microsoft SQL platform.
  • Deployed mirroring and replication on many servers for fault tolerance and reporting purposes, also on Microsoft SQL.
  • Performed installation, configuration and backups of MySQL for the same period of time on a much smaller number of servers (up to ten at any given time), though most of the MySQL administration post install were left to whatever specific application vendor required MySQL to support their application.

  • Prepared all documentation for all SQL servers regarding configuration and disaster recovery planning. Configured and supported Microsoft OS servers for both campuses. As for examples of technical documentation I have written, I regret that I cannot provide any examples, because it would most likely all be protected documentation under HIPPA regulations.

  • Deployed, maintained and configured SQL Server Reporting services (SSRS) on multiple servers for our applications team to enable them to mine data for their various “in house” applications. Also deployed and maintained Microsoft SQL Server Integration services (SSIS) to manage our data warehouse and mining of data.
