Infrastructure Setup on AWS
The project involved designing infrastructure and automation to keep the application scalable to support millions of users. Using the Chef configuration management tool, I automated the deployment and infrastructure as code. As a part of DevOps, I implemented a monitoring solution for the application and infrastructure using New Relic. I also implemented continuous integration using Jenkins to integrate the deployment with an automated test suite.

Setting up the Deployment and IaC
Served as the DevOps engineer on this project, creating the entire IaC using Terraform and AWS and automating the application's deployment process using Amazon ECS clusters and AWS Fargate. I built multiple environments to support the application's testing and release cycle and to test and deploy it before the production process.

Infrastructure Setup and Automated Deployment
I built the whole infrastructure on AWS and created a deployment pipeline using the Jenkins tool that was triggered automatically based on commits in GitHub. The application was deployed on ECS with Fargate, and the whole infrastructure was written in Terraform as IaC.
