Jaguar VMS Support

In 1999, I commenced contracting with Jaguar Cars. My primary role centred on supporting the production VMS systems. I held responsibility for all aspects related to the operating system and layered products supporting the production application (OPCON), which encompassed:

  • Networking configuration
  • Disk Shadowsets
  • Application program development
  • Operating installs and patches
  • File system journals
  • Backups (System and Application)
  • Hardware configuration
  • Disaster recovery planning

The hardware setup included a cluster of four Alpha 1000s running OpenVMS 7.1, with three shadowsets providing shared reliable storage for both the application and operating system.

Following a significant project, I was honoured to receive a personal letter of commendation from the CEO of Jaguar.
