This role is a part of highly technical international engineering team which works on the design, implementation, and execution of infrastructure platform projects for our customer. The primary project for this role will be a datacenter insourcing project that moves 10 important enterprise applications from a managed services provider into our on-premise datacenters.
The candidate will be working in a multi-disciplinary project team based across Europe but primarily in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Gdańsk, Poland. Candidate must have experience working in international teams and be able to deal with different cultures and ways of communicating. Preferably the candidate has experience in insourcing and/or provider disengagements and so will be familiar with the demands of dealing with the delicate situation around the outgoing provider.
Practically the project includes all activities surrounding new hardware builds, P2V, V2V and data migrations depending on application requirements. We expect the hardware vendor to handle most of the racking, stacking and cabling inside the datacenter but candidate should expect to be asked to do hands-on work as well and must have experience in that area.
The prospective candidate’s focus will be on:
Building out a new hardware platform based primarily on HPE and VMware technologies in our twin datacenters in The Netherlands
Installation of new Hyper-Converged HPE Solution
Install & configure VMware platform and add it to existing VCSA solution
Install & configure of new FC SAN storage solution
Install & configure of new application / database servers (Windows/Linux)
(Data) migration using DoubleTake and/or Zerto
Supporting the application teams in getting their applications deployed onto the new hardware
Defining and writing updated DR runbooks
Configuring infrastructure with Ansible
Windows domain changes (and consequences on GPO’s)
Re-IP of migrated machines (and consequences on firewall rules) etc.
Implementing the DR runbook in the DR automation tool(s)
Assisting with implementation of the new servers
Adding solution to backup & updating CMDB
Aligning with Security and Connectivity teams
Representing the project in weekly CAB meetings if necessary
