My name is Chris Murton and I live in Hampshire, UK. I work both as a Technical Leader designing, deploying and supporting effective solutions on Amazon Web Services and as a freelance radio presenter and tech-op.
My background is in managed hosting services on Linux and Windows environments from designing production ready, highly resillient solutions all the way through to supporting them. I’ve also worked on designing and implementing advanced performance monitoring and event management systems.
I’ve seen the move from physical dedicated servers through to VMware and Hyper-V virtualisation and now the adoption of public cloud environments.
- AWS (CloudFormation, S3, EC2, RDS, Lambda, API Gateway, CloudWatch, ElastiCache)
- VMware ESXi
- Citrix XenServer
- Amazon Linux
- IBM Tivoli (OMNIbus, ITM 6.x, Netcool Impact)
- Bash scripting
I’ve been working in radio since 1999, originally setting up and running an Internet-based radio station which went on to continue running for 6 years.
I have extensive experience using Genesys, Myriad v2.6 (Live Assist and Voicetracking), RCS Master Control, Linker and Selector (Live Assist and Voicetracking) and Zetta including scheduling, advert/traffic imports and editing/managing of clocks. I also have experience using Burli, Barrcode BCX and OtsDJ.
