Welcome to Paul Pycroft I.T. Consulting Services
My name is Paul Pycroft. I am a Microsoft System Specialist, Linux enthusiast, and perpetual tinkerer of most I.T. systems. I live in Cardiff, love swimming, photography, motorcycling, and DIY, if time allows.
In I.T. I offer expertise in the Server environment, desktop PC / laptop, networking, scripting as well as web development. Whether it’s a business or personal need I’m quite happy to discuss your options face to face or or email. As a guide I charge £50 for call out thereafter £30 per hour but each job is judged individually. This does not include travel expenses,if further than 10 miles, or any parts or software’s needed.
I am currently employed in a large local Govt organisation as an ICT Senior Consultant, and spend most of my time on operations and the back-end system. The system consists of running a farm of servers of different configuration / platform i.e Microsoft Windows Servers (up to latest spec), Linux/Unix, NetApp, Citrix, VMware, Cloud data storage and backup of large corporate systems. Also, working for support services in the server environment for clients. I create scripts to ensure that the farm of servers are up and running and minimising any downtime as part of 24/7 services.
I have attended various Microsoft and Unix training courses for high end Server environments as well as for personal computer use. I have a M.Sc. in Parallel Computer Systems and an B.Sc. (Hons) in Information Technology. I also have HNC in Electronic & Communication Engineering. I hold Chartered Engineer status as well as being an Chartered I.T. Professional.
