Provide system engineering solutions to meet required capabilities for cloud, Virtual Desktop (VDI), and other current and future computer Infrastructure. Create bills of materials, network designs and diagrams, rack elevations, cable run lists, build books, and other documentation for new and updated installations. Work with network, storage, and server personnel to define new or modified solutions to complex problems. Respond to requests for new MUC and VDI systems, design them to meet capacity and user requirements, and determine required power, space, cooling, and funding to meet these goals. Prepare summaries for budget estimates and details for purchase.
Critical documentation types include Rack elevations (specific layout of hardware in rack floor plans); Network Diagrams (Physical connections diagram to system port level); Cable Run List (spreadsheets of all physical hardware and network connections within a system); System Build Books, installation guides for hardware builds, and cable labels; and full documentation of hardware identifiers and inventory information.
Individual Capabilities/Experience Required:
