There’s a general perception that Server System Administrators are short, overweight lonely men with overgrown beards who work in dark dungeon like basements, maintaining the worlds servers and keeping the internet running. Where this perception comes from, I’m not quite sure. Hollywood perhaps! Truth is, they’re just regular people like you and me. They may work in very different environments to most of us, but it’s all about to change. And this is thanks to a company called Cybele Software Incorporated.
We no longer live in an era of solely servers, desktop and the occasional laptop. There’s a lot more devices available at our disposal including netbooks, tablets and smart phones, all capable of acceptable internet access from almost anywhere. z/Scope has made the job of server System Administrators a lot more convenient. It can still be an intense and demanding job with many serious responsibilities, but if accessibility the worlds critical servers are within reach of the safe hands of our System Administrators wherever they are, then that has to be a good thing.
