Mr Verrall

Independent IT Consulting

Need a hand with your Linux Hosting?

Does your organisation run important services on Linux platforms with little or no in-house Linux expertise?

With over a decades experience in professional Linux Systems Administration (and may more years tinkering), I offer consultancy and support services for anyone running a Linux service on a budget. I'm not a web designer, but I do specialise in everything else your site depends on:

  • Web Application Hosting

  • Security

  • Optimisation

  • Firewalls

  • Databases

  • High Availability

  • Backups


In 2008 I moved to Lancaster and began working with Lancaster University on the 'CLEO' project (Cumbria and Lancashire Education online). As a Linux Systems Administrator I assisted in running and maintaining core Linux systems and delivering many projects at scale, such as a country wide Moodle deployment. In 2018 I become a Security Analyst for Lancaster University.
