Unix/Linux System Engineer, Teaching Linux & Storage

Hi There,

I am Muhamad Elkenany and I’m your go-to Unix/Linux systems and maintenance support.

I began with Linux in 2006 and have never looked back, gaining certifications in Linux, HPUX and Solaris. Throughout my career I served in several IT companies and am now at work as a UNIX/LINUX System Engineer, ever passionate to learn and know more.

Along the way, I’ve also gained much experience with virtualization (VMware ESXi , KVM ,VPAR) and storage (EMC, SUN, HP storage products)

I’m happy to share my expertise, and support your needs for more knowledge and information in the world of Linux.

If you are enthused about the possibilities of Linux, it is my pleasure to gain new friends! Please add me on Facebook & linkedin.
