Welcome to my blog! My name is Adam Baldwin and I currently work as a Sr. Systems Administrator for the Olympic Medical Center in beautiful Port Angeles. I’m a MCITP EA and have been working as a systems administrator since late 2006.
I began my career in Atlanta with Novare Group Holdings LLC, supporting their mid-sized corporation which spans over 30 properties throughout the Southeast. While with Novare, I established the foundations for my skills in scripting, administration, and advanced debugging by way of deploying and troubleshooting enterprise and proprietary systems. I drove efforts for various projects, implementing and restructuring Novare’s homegrown systems. The most prominent of these projects was the redeployment of Twelve Hotels’ GHOST system, an in-room concierge, structured around Microsoft’s TS infrastructure.
I simultaneously worked to develop and support Fourth Generation Software Solutions’ VMware and Linux environment as a Systems Administrator. This aided in my ability to gain knowledge and comprehension over both Unix-based operating systems and virtualized solutions à la VMWare.
I decided to move to Washington to take part in some exciting efforts for the medical industry by designing and implementing a nearly 100% virtualized environment consisting of over 1000 users and 250 servers. During my time with OMC I have coded several advanced scripts for administration and reporting as well as engineered many solutions throughout the course of project deployments and disaster recovery responses.
I realized how little information there was regarding the types of solutions I was engineering, so I decided to start a blog to share the knowledge and experience that I had acquired. My goal here is to provide tips, scripts, information, and solutions for anything tech related that I encounter and cannot seem to locate anywhere else.
I hope that you find the information useful and keep checking back for more!
