I primarily specialise in technologies these days including configuration management technologies like Ansible, containerisation like LXDs and Vagrant and devops frameworks like Jenkins and host of other stuff. Basically I love infrastructure automation.
I am a self-starter with a proven track record in systems administration, programming, security, networking, monitoring, scripting and automation.
I strongly advocate standardisation of technologies, automation, industry best practices, standard repeatable deployments, proactive monitoring and writing generic utilities and reusable code.

Infrastructure automation in Financial Markets (High Frequency) domain. Fiddling with Artifactory REST API to tame it as per ansible demanding needs Ansible-izing every aspect of infrastructure to feed to low latency stacks. Groovy-flying jenkins jobs using jenkins DSL. Containerizing by using vagrant/virtualbox/LXC/LXD and truly defining the term IAAC in the current state (Infra as a Code). Running all above under the parental guidance of VMware. Its just fun. !!
