AWS Azure GCP / Solutions Architect / Linux / DevOps / Cloud Engineer

TOP-RATED UPWORKER, OVER 13K HRS ON UPWORK AND 150+ SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS I am an experienced DevOps Engineer, Solutions Architect, and Cloud Engineer with a strong background in Security and Infrastructure. With 20+ years in the IT & Telecoms industry, I have consistently delivered successful global projects and led the design and delivery of complex cloud-based infrastructure that caters to millions of users. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with renowned international companies and Fortune 500 organizations, including: ✅ Mozilla (Firefox) ✅ Druva ✅ Walmart ✅ Vodafone ✅ Deloitte ✅ Aspen Pharmaceuticals ✅ AA (Automobile Association) ✅ Clover ✅ American Marketing Association ✅ RCI ✅ MTN My primary specialization lies in Cloud Computing, where I excel in automating operating systems and applications for internal, AWS, Azure, and GCP cloud environments. I am well-versed in private cloud platforms such as Hyper-V and VMware infrastructure. As part of my expertise, I consistently implement CI/CD pipelines using various toolsets such as CircleCI, AWS/GCP/Azure DevOps, AWS CodeDeploy, and GitHub, among others. Automated infrastructure provisioning and post-provisioning automation are areas where I am highly skilled, utilizing Ansible and Terraform to deploy resources in AWS/Azure/GCP as well as facilitate seamless enterprise cloud migrations from on-premises to the cloud and from cloud to cloud. In addition, I specialize in optimizing and consolidating cloud infrastructure to help you effectively manage your spending on both public (AWS, Azure, GCP) and private (VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix Xen) cloud environments. I prioritize scalability, sustainability, and security in all my endeavours. Throughout my career, I have successfully led over 500 projects from inception to completion, consistently meeting deadlines and staying within agreed budgets. My work ethic revolves around the principle of "under-promise and over-deliver," always striving to exceed expectations and add value to my clients' projects. Communication is one of my strong suits, and I excel at effectively collaborating with both technical and non-technical stakeholders. I am highly motivated, innovative, and analytical, constantly seeking opportunities to think outside the box and find optimal solutions for complex challenges.
