Worked on an email migration project where users from an acquired telecom were migrated to TDS. I automated (scripted) the process of migrating users emails and forwarding future emails from their old account to a TDS email account.

Enhanced the means by which new servers are built to TDS. The process minimized operator intervention and automated software and firmware updates of the new servers. I accomplished this using various bash and Perl scripts and RedHat Kickstart capabilities and PXE boot.
