Already known throughout the industry as “PowerHAguy”, Shawn, an IBM Power Champion, is considered an expert on all things AIX. In fact, he wrote the book on it – literally! To date, he has co-authored nine IBM Redbooks publications and three IBM Redpaper™ publications. To say that Shawn is passionate about his work would be an understatement: He not only holds numerous AIX, POWER, and storage certifications, but also is a sought-after speaker: presenting at technical conferences, webinars, and onsite to customers on topics such as high availability, disaster recovery and storage. Taking it one step further, Shawn has also co-authored several PowerHA and AIX certification exams. But don’t blame him if you didn’t pass them. Instead, take advantage of his YouTube, Twitter, and PowerHA SystemMirror for AIX wiki resources listed below.
