The first project is related to a configuration management tool named Chef. The second project is related to container orchestration tool named Kubernetes.


  1. Created infrastructure test suites written by InSpec testing framework to verify configuration results converged by Test Kitchen or configured by Chef.
  2. Set up Cron jobs to monitor infrastructure settings in real-time and send notification emails via SendGrid if exceptions occur.
  3. Ported a big data sharing platform to Kubernetes cluster with etcd as distributed key-value store and Calico as CNI network plugin.
  4. Replaced Nginx service with Nginx Ingress Controller that manages Ingress rules enabling inbound traffic to applications.
