PowellTechConsulting is the personal blog of Chris Powell: geek, hacker, former US Marine, aspiring programmer and open-source supporter.

I have worked professionally in the IT Industry for several years starting as a basic System Administrator to my current position as a Senior Systems Engineer. I have worked on systems ranging from basic LAMP setups to full HPC Beowulf clusters, primarily with Linux and Solaris. The posts here are mostly for my own knowledge, but I would like to think that maybe I have helped another person with their problem.

My primary interests are around the Linux, web spaces, programming and include:

  • automated and large-scale approaches to system administration
  • system and network monitoring and management
  • programming and development with Java, Python and Bash
