HardC0r3 DevOps / Linux Freek and Game Dev

I’m a highly experienced technical systems engineer with over 14 years enterprise experience in systems and development particularly in the financial and telecoms industry with particular interest in Linux as well as Unix.

This allowed us to iterate through given revisions if required to deploy to the main dev staging and production environment (100) containers at time with, ease of usage.
The most complex configuration was done with containerized services that are bootstrapped with supervisorctl and s3overlay for their service management.
The docker images that worked with were Alpine, CentOS and Ubuntu and the distributed system stack for the app to work was based on apache cassandra, zookeeper, httpd, activemq, rabbitmq, postfix, haproxy, nginx and traefik as reverse proxies and apache solr core and complete stack (aggregators, proxies, storage importers), apache httpd and nginx and lot more.
Currently, im interested and believe me would be great to deploy all my skill set as value for the above and im sure would be great to decrease TCO increase ROI and mentor and hit the SOA arch of it (would
