The objective of the project included Linux System Administration Consultancy Support to provide production support for Java apps in a Linux environment for a smooth flow of the project in line with the client’s business requirements.

V Group Inc. supported the client and understood the challenges that were present in the existing system. These challenges were reviewed by the team to overcome them ensuring smooth transitioning of the system.

In the first place, we provided support to develop/support shell scripts for file transfers, system monitoring. Installed, configured and managed off the shelf commercial products within the stipulated time and provided application support.

Moving ahead, with a streamlined approach we facilitated the client assisted with monitoring of the virtual and physical infrastructure. Collaborated with technical workgroups to identify and document server infrastructure needs and prioritize subsequent implementation. This was achieved via excellent team work, as we helped the client to co-ordinate the work in order by allowing them to interact with the other product teams and other stakeholders.
