E-justice Web Services

I worked on scalable e-justice government services for the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation in a team of six developers, starting as a regular software engineer and continuing in the role of a team lead.
The distributed software system was based on ASP.NET MVC web application servers, an Elasticsearch cluster, a sharded MS SQL Server database cluster, WCF, and Windows services handling about 20TB of data 14,000 req/s and 7000 users.
Since the system was aggregating a lot of information, it was the right place to develop a data warehouse and produce statistics and prediction services. As a sub-project, I've been developing a solution based on MS SQL Server Analysis Services.
