    This is a SaaS application built for restaurants where each shop has its own store in our infrastructure. Clients can sign up and create an account to build a store. This operation is fully automated and creates DNS records, databases from templates, and storage file systems. I developed middleware to perform this using AWS APIs. The app is based on Kubernetes EKS using the following resources from AWS: EC2, RDS, EFS, EBS, auto-scaling groups, Route53, and Terraform.
