I am a veteran DevOps and I love urgent jobs. Time is money for your business, and I resolve problems as fast as possible – often in minutes.
Performance issues are common on default server installs. I know how to make servers handle millions of visitors, and how to make websites and applications faster. My solutions are saving thousands on the infrastructure running costs for some of my clients (especially on AWS/GCE).
My expertise: site reliability engineering, high-traffic installations for WordPress, Magento and custom apps, and identifying performance bottlenecks in them. Server speed and load optimization, complex site, email, and domain migrations. Multiple-server architecture designs. Containerizing applications for ECS and Kubernetes. Setting up an automated app, server deployment and testing (I mostly use GitLab CI/CD these days).
Platforms: AWS, Google Cloud, DigitalOcean, Linode, Vultr and others

I am on a reasonably fast fiber optic connection. I have Linux servers in US, Europe and Asia available for network-intensive tasks and test projects.
Previously have been specializing in data recovery for eleven years, working with a huge variety of Linux, Windows and Mac workstations and servers. Wrote a few tools for data recovery, for Windows in C# and for Linux in C and Python. Reverse-engineered lots of software and hardware pieces on the way.
