Managed massive mainframes

 

Okay, okay, so maybe those aren’t the exact lyrics to Vitamin C’s “Graduation.” But as time has passed and technology has evolved, the role of SysAdmin has sort of graduated, too. From managing mainframes to servers, mainstream virtualization, the cloud and beyond, the past 10 years alone have seen some pretty dramatic shifts come to the role of the SysAdmin. And with so much on the horizon, one thing that’s certain is that we’ll see the role of SysAdmin evolve even more in the next 10 years.

 

So, to celebrate SysAdmins everywhere and in honor of SysAdmin Day 2015 coming up on July 31st, we’d like to hear your comments on how you think:

 

1. The role of SysAdmin has changed over the past 10 years

2. The role of SysAdmin will change over the next 10 years

 

Use the comments section below to share your thoughts on each by July 6th and we’ll give you 250 thwack points as a token of our appreciation (not that we need an excuse to show you our appreciation).
