Teamcenter expert Randy Ellsworth joined the project in Finspang, SE (FSP) with no background and very little turnover as the Teamcenter administrator. At the time, the project consisted of twenty Teamcenter development environments running concurrently on a single Sun server. The cost of upgrading the Sun server was prohibitive to the growth of the project and everything was soon migrated to Windows tiered servers. Due to business reasons the project moved to Gorlitz, DE (GLZ).
While in GLZ, Randy performed exceptionally well and assumed the role of Infrastructure architect under the superb leadership of Peter Spierling. A mixture of physical and virtual servers were stood up and configured as needed to facilitate data migration using global services, several development environments, a quality assurance environment, a training environment and a production environment were maintained or rebuilt as required. The production environment, besides being separated vertically, was also expanded horizontally so that the application tier consisted of three servers and the web tier consisted of two servers behind a load-balancer to accommodate the load and fail over. Randy successfully mentored several people in his role and regularly scheduled tasks for them. Randy was instrumental in the successful “go live” rollout to Production of the Globus project for the GLZ business units...
The success of the Globus project was due in part to Randy’s participation. His knowledge and experience were instrumental while his cool demeanor during highly stressful events kept everyone at ease. I would gladly engage him again given the opportunity and provide my highest recommendation.
