Resolving issues with file system performance include numerous solutions, primarily hardware related, from use of faster disks, a greater number of disks, distributed storage, SANs, and on the bleeding edge extreme, petabyte-worthy technologies such as cluster file systems. It can also lead to “workaround” handlings such as reinstalling software, re-imaging of hard drives, replacement of hardware, all of which incur overwork on the administrative end. It forces IT to work reactively on problems, increasing IT costs and adversely affects user productivity due to unacceptable levels of downtime.
I run DaniWeb. I coded (and currently maintain) the site from scratch using PHP/MySQL/jQuery and grew it into a thriving community of over 1 million IT professionals and 10 million visitors a month, making it not only one of the largest social media websites in its niche, but one of the largest publications on the web to date. I sell advertising. I host annual events throughout Manhattan during Internet Week, Advertising Week and Social Media Week which each see an average of over 1000 attendees. I host a bimonthly meetup group for techies on Long Island and eastern Queens. I speak on panels at search engine conferences. I run a brick-and-mortar coworking community for the tech industry in Queens, NY. I multitask. I consider myself a platform creator and a community builder. I'm a super-geeky programmer with a passion for Internet marketing. I am not for hire.
