Migrate existing onsite OpenSuse 11 Linux server to Amazon EC2 EBS

Migrate existing onsite OpenSuse 11 Linux server to Amazon EC2 EBS


Job Description

We require the assistance of an experience Linux administrator, who can migrate an existing onsite OpenSuse Linux 11 based system running on AMD onsite hardware to Amazon AWS EC2 and specifically to an EBS backed setup.

We would (under your instructions) do whatever is required to obtain a suitable image of the existing server and could upload it to Amazon AWS S3 or other suitable service.

The problem here is, that the existing server's hardware is old and we fear hardware failure. The other problem is, that the software running on it is no longer supported (the software vendor went out of business), but we are not in a position to change this piece of software at present.

So this migration is needed to give the server a new lease on life and to operate for the medium term. For the longer term the complete change to a new system is under consideration.

We have put a fixed price on this project, but we are happy to negotiate a reasonable fixed fee.

Please only apply for this job, if you have the necessary expertice and experience.

We sometimes get a large amount of applications to our jobs and may not be able to respond to everyone personally. If you have not heard from us within a week of your application we are sorry you have not been successful and we wish you all the best in the future.

Otherwise we are looking forward to working with you.
