Palante Technology Cooperative is seeking a new technical support person to join us in our work with incredible nonprofit and community organizations. The new worker will join our tech support team, providing remote and on-site assistance to our clients in New York City.
Our infrastructure team member, Jamila, recently completed an upgrade of our entire monitoring infrastructure for Windows computers, which is a key part of how we keep our client systems running, up to date, and virus free. This upgrade was almost 7 years in the works! We’re so excited to finally be up to date, using a set up that involves Icinga2, an open source monitoring software, with specific Powershell scripts to make it work nicely with Windows. We wanted to share the details of our set up so that others can replicate or iterate on it for their own use.
Update on November 25, 2020: Our tech support team will not be scheduling non-urgent site visits between December 11, 2020 and January 4, 2021 in a precaution against rising Covid-19 cases around the nation, and to allow our workers to safely travel during the holidays.
