I'm a Site Reliability Engineer with skills around linux systems administration, AWS cloud, infrastructure monitoring and systems performance. I also have experience with administrating hadoop clusters. I tend to follow practices which are embraced by the DevOps culture and I believe in automation of tasks which are repetitive in nature.

Linux system internals and application performance are the area of my interests. I am learning about Linux kernel and I have made several open source project contributions in the process.

Lately, I have been a full-stack generalist engineer, specializing in large scale capacity management.


--admin systems

Extensive experience with the configuration, hardening, and maintenance of various RedHat based Linux distributions.

I have setup whole infrastructure monitoring and metrics collection. Also have developed incident management and alerts escalations system.

Experienced with automating tasks using jenkins and AWS Lambda; config management using salt- stack.

--admin hadoop

Experienced with hadoop cluster administration. Have managed clusters with both CDH and HDP platforms. Also have done migration from CDH to HDP and worked on project to keep production cluster in sync with standby cluster. [HBase]

--admin cloud

Extensive experience with AWS cloud platform. Have worked with and automated various tasks using EC2, CloudWatch, Lambda and other services. Also have done autoscaling project for a client facing services with help of set of AWS services.

Also have worked on solutions to protect applications from Denial of Service attacks using web application firewalls and request pattern analysis.


I have several projects of my own on GitHub and I also have contributed to open source projects.

Some of my own projects:

* go-mysql-lock : Golang MySQL Backed Locking Primitive.
* PyDFS : Small distributed file system.
* PyWSocket : Basic implementation of WEbSocket protocol.

Projects I have contributed to:

* maybe : See what a program does before deciding whether you really want it to happen.
* knetstat : Simple kernel module to inspect socket options


As a developer, I have worked on several projects which mostly are web-apps in python. One of them was an app to generate offer letters of new joinees. Other was the interface to black-list IPs from accessing the infrastructure.

I have also created several full stack applications for work (Meta) and for personal projects.


I also happen to blog on SuperUser.
