An organization’s information technology infrastructure and the communications network that connects it together are the foundational backgrounds of all activity in a modern business. System administrators are tasked with keeping all these various IT components running efficiently and reliably. In organizations reliant on open-source systems those system administration responsibilities often fall to a Linux Administrator.
Because of the nature of open-source technology, Linux Administrators are often asked to be a jack of all trades when it comes to system administration.
Not only must they handle every aspect of hardware and software management for both physical and virtual systems, but Linux administrators must also apply their broad knowledge base of network configuration, virtualization, interoperability, and Windows operating systems.
