The Accenture Cloud Platform (ACP) is a cloud broker and orchestration engine that enables the consumption of Infrastructure-as-a-Service resources (compute, storage, network) from multiple providers. Beyond basic resource provisioning, the platform also enables the construction of higher-order services that consist of collections of VMs, networks, and storage that work as deployable units for multiple tenants. Examples include Testing tools as a Service (TaaS), Hadoop-based Big Data Platform, and Cloud-Foundry-based aPaaS.
The IaaS Systems Administrator will work to establish, maintain, deploy, and otherwise care for the virtual infrastructure required by the ACP project teams. The role involves the deployment of VM templates and installation of third party software to those VMs. The System Admin will also be responsible for working with project teams through the development life cycle to build development, staging, and production environments. Responsibilities include administration of the IaaS environment as well as managing user access to servers and virtual private networks. Additionally, the system admin will be responsible for managing virtual resources and perform right sizing activities for VMs. Optimization of virtual machine performance is a key responsibility as well. And lastly the System Admin will create and update VM templates.
