Skills

AWS logo
Three years working within the AWS team in Dublin on Enterprise Cloud support and architecture. Consulting as an AWS Enterprise Cloud Architect since 2014. Experience with VPC, EC2, RDS database services, EBS & S3 storage, Autoscaling & Load Balancing. My core specialism within AWS is design and deployment of high availability cloud infrastructure. Strong track record of delivering AWS Cloud solutions at the Enterprise level.
OpenStack logo
Architecting and building OpenStack private cloud solutions in R&D environments for the past 2 years. Working primarily with NFV/SDN [Network Functional Virtualisation / Software Defined Networking] so I chose Mirantis and RDO platforms to aid the rapid deployment of Openstack in multiple lab scenarios. I am competent with all of the core Openstack components Swift, Cinder, Nova, Neutron, Glance, Keystone. In addition to these core services I have utilised additional services Such as Heat and Murano for rapid application platform deployment.

I have over 20 years experience in IT infrastructure architecture at an Enterprise level. My many years experience working in traditional data centre environments with physical servers and bare metal infrastructure is hugely valuable in architecting for the Cloud. I understand the concerns about security, performance and reliability that IT managers have because I have worn that hat. This makes me ideally suited to working on projects where the client is migrating their bricks & mortar infrastructure to the Cloud.

I am a certified Amazon AWS Solutions Architect - Professional Level

I have been a keen IT automation enthusiast throughout my career. In traditional infrastructure I used scripting to automate IT administration tasks and deployments. This skillset migrated well to working in Cloud infrastructure and I have assisted many customers with simple HA [high availability] application scripts through to fully automated software and system deployments.

DevOps tools I am currently working with:
  • Ansible and Ansible Tower
  • AWS Cloudformation, Elastic Beanstalk, OpsWorks
  • Heat and Murano on Openstack
