Systems integration for Guardian.

Xenith Consulting provides engineers to assist with the Guardian and Observer Newspapers’ web sites and associated services in the testing, pre-deployment, and production environments.

These three heterogeneous environments comprised of a total of 200+ servers running a mix of Solaris 8, 9, and 10, and RedHat Enterprise 3 and 4.

Key tasks associated with this role included the installation, configuration, and maintenance of various blade-based servers, including Sun B1600 chassis (using B100s blades) and IBM BladeCentres (using HS20 and LS20 blades), along with various Sun V100, V210, E420R, and IBM DL380 servers. 

Xenith Consulting also assisted with the technical implementation of the Guardian Jobs site migration from an in-house solution to a third party application service provider.
