Russ is an experienced solution architect who has been working in IT and related industries for the better part of 23 years. During his career, he has had varied responsibilities in many different sectors, ranging from looking after an entire IT infrastructure to providing first-line, second-line, and senior support in both client-facing and internal teams for small and large organisations.
Russ works almost exclusively with Linux, using open source systems and tools across both dedicated hardware & virtual machines hosted in public and private clouds at Node4 Limited, where he heads up the Open Source Solutions team.
In his spare time, he has written three books on Docker. "Monitoring Docker" & "Extending Docker" are both available now from Packt with "Docker Data Management with Flocker" being published in January 2017.
He also buys way too many vinyl records.
