Job Description

For our Transport / Logistics Client based in the NorthWest Region we are looking for a Linux Application Specialist

 

Our Client requires two standard Linux images - RedHat and CentOs.

 

This work will require several distinct phases to be completed

  • The design of a Template Linux Image
    • A design task to decide the configuration of both the source image (which is utilised as a template) AND the final ‘deployed’ image. 

 

  • Creation of the Deployment process (based on a VMWare hypervisor) which will deploy a base OS image into the MAG estate for consumption by an application. This will address points such as
    • What hardening is required on the final BAU image
    • How IP addresses are allocated
    • T-Shirt sizing for Linux images (small, medium, large)
    • Hardening selections to be applied as the server image is deployed
    • Which tools need to be installed (and where from) for management, backup, Anti-Virus, Active Directory Management etc
    • Method of joining the server image to the AD Domain – and credentials to utilise

Expected Workload:

  • Installation features to be included / excluded
  • Hardening required based on the CIS guidelines we already have in AD
  • Patching approach – akin to WSUS and starting from the current Windows approach
  • other security configuration – AV, AD membership
  • Patching – WSUS type
  • monitoring
  • Integration with AD for account management

If this sounds like a good fit please get in contact with an up to date copy of your CV.
