I see a lot of people coming by #centos and similar channels asking for help when they’re experiencing a problem with their Linux system. It amazes me how many people describe their problem, and then say something along the lines of, “and I disabled SELinux...”.

My colleagues and I are looking for extra talent – is that you?
What we do:help clients prevent problems (rather than being the fire department), we work on a subscription basis although we also do some ad-hoc consulting, and training. Apart from MySQL/MariaDB query and DBA work, we do quite a bit of system administration. Mainly Red Hat and Debian based distros, and expect to see replication and the MySQL-MMM multi-master system.

- installs the DBMS on a computer with other processes
- writes many programs to access the data (Without concern on how the queries are written.)

- buy bigger computer to run the DBMS and writes more programs
- tires of DBMS response times and outages caused by developers working on production systems and hires a Database Administrator to fix the mess
