The Solaris Unix-based operating system became one of the most widely used servers for websites during the internet boom.
Due to its complexity, organisations utilising the system require Solaris experts to help with ongoing maintenance as well as initial system design.
Many Solaris experts move towards administration jobs. This can involve a wide range of tasks from building and installing software and infrastructure to commissioning Solaris hardware and software.
Good communications skills are required if the specific role requires the provision of technical advice on Solaris systems - and additional skills like an understanding of ITIL support processes are an asset.
You may work directly for Solaris or a related company as a consultant or technical specialist, helping clients to find the best solution. This will require in-depth knowledge of all Solaris products, and possibly additional programming knowledge in Java, for example.
