Current focus is DevOps and systems administration revolving around all aspects of modern high-load web systems and applications. All levels, from HA and throughout every stack and layer to DB and storage backends, and then to deploy and orchestration and monitoring. Everyday working knowledge of Amazon Web Services, with dozens of complex systems deployed and in operation, familiar with GCP and a touch of Azure. Learning as I go to keep at the leading edge.
