HP Enterprise APRIL 2015 - PRESENT

Network test lead

● Worked on network testing of HP C7000 and Thunderbird platform along with HP Oneview to manage hardware.

● Created test cases to test switching functionality on the platforms and setup lab for testing.

● Worked on HP server hardwares with FC, FCoE and ISCSI configuration along with HP 10 Gig and 40gig interconnect Modules.

● Tested uplink connectivity to SAN cloud (3PAR), Ethernet uplink connectivity to HP 5900 switches or Cisco switches.

● Managed Brocade FC switches SN3000 and SN6000 to provide connectivity to 3PAR and HP MSA storage devices

● Worked extensively on MS VISIO to create Network Maps and MS Excel and MS Word to create Cable Matrices.

● Worked on cable testing, which involved using DWDM on Ciena SONET equipment.

● Worked with python scripts to deploy C7000 and Thunderbird hardware as single enclosure or multi-enclosure setup.

● Developed Python scripts to deploy, teardown, run automated tests and run traffic to server hardwares.

● Ran tests to verify multi-path, MLAG functionality and connectivity to remote OS deployments via FC, FCoE and iSCSI.
