Ruben Kerkhof

Hi, my name is Ruben, I'm 27 years old and I live in the Netherlands, in a beautiful town called Rijswijk. At the moment, I work as a Senior System Engineer for a large Dutch arline company, building their Linux platform.

I started with Unix on FreeBSD, but since we use RedHat on the job, I switched over to Fedora, and never looked back I'm typing this on my Macbook Pro running F-9.


My packages

Pound is the first package I maintain, it's a really cool and fast http loadbalancer. If you're looking for a reverse proxy and think mod_proxy is overkill, please give it a try.

My second package is PowerDNS , probably the fastest authorative DNS server around. It has backends for MySQL and PostgreSQL, and LDAP as well. There's also a separate recursor, but that will be another package. It's not recursive though, the recursor is packaged as a separate rpm (pdns-recursor).

And ...

Oh, by the way, I'm a RHCA 804006222819869
