Top Linux Server Freelancing Services

Hire Freelance Linux Server Managers

Linux is an open-source operating system mainly used on servers, mainframe computers, supercomputers, and also on personal desktops and laptops. It is also used for powering routers, video game consoles, smart watches and digital video recorders. Linux is one of the preferred server operating systems used by several internet hosting companies. It is also a component of LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) commonly used for web and application development. Linux servers are very different from Linux workstations used on desktops and so is their management. This is because Linux servers have advanced management features and database administration capabilities. Hence, a server administrator for Linux needs to be familiar with these tools in order to provide efficient Linux server management services.

What Linux Server Managers Do?

Linux server managers primarily monitor the Linux server, and the applications running on it, and check for regular updates to the server. They also overlook the setup and configuration of different software on the Linux server for their clients. As dedicated Linux server managers are professionals, they can perform Linux server management in a timely manner and at a lesser cost. They have the ability to troubleshoot technical issues and put in place preventive maintenance of your Linux server. They handle server monitoring alerts, security alerts, performance issues, backups and infrastructure upgrades. Linux game servers are more challenging to manage than normal Linux servers depending on the game requirements. Hence Linux game server managers can help ease your load by managing your game and all features related to it on the Linux server.

If you are looking for a Linux server manager or a Linux game server manager, you can hire a freelancer online to help you with your Linux server requirements. However, you need to ensure that your freelancer has:

  • Familiarity with the Linux server and its administration management system.
  • Capability of troubleshooting issues related to the Linux server.
  • Several years of experience in managing the Linux server for hosting applications and games.

Qualifications of Linux Server Managers

It is ideal that your freelancer has the following skills:

  • Professional education and training in Linux server administration and management
  • Sound knowledge of the Linux server and ability to address technical issues
  • Extensive portfolio of several applications and games successfully managed on the Linux server
  • Good communication skills to ensure that there are roadblocks while interacting with clients about deliverables
