My name is Pavan Kristipati. Currently, I work as a Database Administrator / Technical Specialist for a regional Banking/Finance company in Columbus, OH since May 2010. In my current role, I manage and support an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) on DB2 LUW DPF (Database Partitioning Feature) and Highly Available (24/7) OLTP (DB2 / HADR) applications. I am an IBM Certified Advanced Database Administrator – DB2 10.1 for Linux, UNIX and Windows.
I love sharing complex architectures / ideas in simple words / pictures. I have a tendency to put abstract topics/ideas in pictures/figures for better visualization. Writing UNIX scripts to simplify and to automate my daily work-life is something that I do on a regular basis. Driving database solutions to business problems and seeing them solve a challenge is something that I enjoy in my work-life. I love working with people and prefer human interaction in a room over online meetings.. 🙂
In February 2014, I started to write this blog to share few ideas/concepts/challenges in DB2 LUW administration / development that I have either worked on / currently working on. I consider myself eclectic and technophile. I love to read books. I often start to watch a movie but would take 2-3 sittings (days) to finish watching. I sign up for online courses and I love to stay cutting edge. I consider Coursera, Udacity to be a blessing to everyone. I usually work out 2-3 times a week… So, that is about me.
Thanks for stopping by and knowing about me.
