Experience

  • One-click Deployment of an eCommerce Solution

    I handled the one-click automatic deployment of a highly-available and resilient EC2 cluster (auto-scaling) per customer, included the complete isolation of resources (AWS VPC) that support both rolling upgrade and blue/green deployment methods. I achieved this by using AWS CLI scripting and Ansible configuration management.

  • Continuous-deployment Pipeline for a Microservices Cluster

    I developed a complete out-of-the-box solution of a continuous-deployment pipeline that builds and deploys a secure, highly-available, and production-ready system based only on AWS resources (CodeCommit, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy, CodePipeline, RDS, CloudFront, Secrets
    Manager, ECS, Fargate, CloudWatch, ECR, S3, IAM, and VPC).

    It is a single script run that executes three CloudFormation stacks that build an environment from scratch and two CF stacks that when invoked during pipeline activities creates and updates the cluster respectively.
