"I am able to manage labs with more than 150 machines thanks to my RHCE..."

Sr. quality assurance engineer

I have a passion about Linux® from my school days, which motivated me to take this certification. Although I am not a system admin, I am able to manage labs with more than 150 machines thanks to my RHCE®, which helped me to set up Kickstart, DHCP, and DNS servers. My company uses Linux machines for testing our products, which means the lifespan of the machines is much shorter. It used to be very difficult to install machines manually every other day, but after my RHCE certification, I was able to set up a Kickstart server, reducing our efforts drastically. I have a strong belief that Linux will rule the world one day.
