Arthur Lorotte de Banes

Full-stack Developer in Paris, France

Member since February 21, 2018
In 2012, Arthur earned a master's degree in computer engineering but he soon learned his true north was in system administration. His programming background has helped him automate most of his tasks along the way and he eventually ended up in cloud computing as it gave him even more possibilities. Arthur is a full-stack DevOps who has particularly strong development skills with all things AWS—which his numerous certifications can attest to.
Arthur is now available for hire

  • Upgrade Your Bastion with a Drawbridge

    It’s a known best practice to use a bastion host to access your private resources whether it’s in the cloud or your data centers.

    The goal is that only the bastion host is reachable, either directly from the internet or particular IPs. It’s the only entry point to your infrastructure so it’s easier to secure this single server.

    However, do you really need multiple bastions to run at all time?

    So why not remove the entrance to our bastion when we are not using it...
