BAE Systems VMware Administrator (Virtualizaion) in Bluemont, Virginia
VMware administrators create, deploy, and maintain network and server infrastructure that relies on VMware products such as vSphere, vRealize, or vSAN. At the outset of a project, they collaborate with other specialists and engineers to create a suitable system design for clients, after which they install and set up both software and hardware components at client sites. Despite these resource-heavy tasks, VMware administrators spend much of their time on maintenance and troubleshooting to guarantee maximum performance. While they mostly work in front of a computer with occasional travel to client locations, they may remain on call during evenings or weekends to supply ongoing system support.
Duties and Responsibilities

VMware administrators build and install computer infrastructure, which encompasses hardware, servers, and virtual machines, using a VMware environment such as vSphere.

Software must go through regular maintenance, and it s up to VMware administrators to monitor client systems daily and pinpoint problem areas. They proactively design and install upgrades, releases, and application patches. On a less frequent basis, they also update drivers, servers, and firmware with newer technology.
