John brings two high-value qualities to his work: high competency and high integrity. His range and depth of skill in network administration and workstation management are among the best I've seen. He is able to assess the scope of an effort very accurately, and delivers on what he promises. John is always a straight-shooter. He asks the right questions at the right time, and neither gives nor accepts boiler-plate answers. You can trust what he says because he always has the objective facts to back up his position. He is a "no surprises" performer because he comprehends his projects and tasks through diligence, determination, and skill.
John is an exceptional engineer, skilled in optimizing machine hardware/software configurations, network design and optimization, security, cloud computing, data centers, and management of complex IT infrastructure. He works closely with and communicates well with developers and management to create and deploy computing environments that meet the needs of both internal and external customers. John is the best IT manager I have encountered!
John is a very gifted individual and an "A-Player". He always has a solution for any problem he comes across, is a tremendous team player, extremely vendor agnostic when it comes to technology, and his troubleshooting skills are unmatched. His love is with Open Source Software but he can tackle any issue in both a Unix/Linux or Windows world. He is a very polished and seasoned professional who has been through many software/network refreshes and disaster recovery scenarios. At least once week John surprises me with his ability to think outside the box.
John took on the work of rebuilding our servers, networks, workstations and phone systems. The result was a far better functioning, more organized and far more secure system than we had previously. John then worked to dilligently maintain our systems, monitor our security, and act proactively to address issues before they arose. John's attention to detail, dedication to the job and overall approach are all exceptional. I would highly recommend him and would welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
John Ellis epitomizes what everyone wants in a Director of IT, namely someone who has mastered the entire range of modern software systems and tools, has a strong sense of organization, a disciplined approach to managing IT infrastructures, and a commitment to maintaining his expertise across a wide range of rapidly-changing technologies.
I highly recommend John to any company that needs a dedicated and competent Systems Administrator who is able to solve every problem, every time with the minimum of resources. From piecing together old outdated hardware, to dealing with international employees and understanding what it takes to bring a system up and keep it up John is the right person. He has the ability to work across the spectrum of employees and vendors and can simplify complex issues to a broad audience. Very easy to work with and a team player.
