Hi I’m Yvo,
Currently I’m workin as a Cloud Consultant at Oblivion Cloud Control. I specialised myself in building high available environments using automation (Infrastructure as Code combined with Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD).
Previously, my fascination with Cloud and Automation started when I was working at a hosting provider. On-premise datacenters consisted of long-lived servers which needed to be patched and upgraded (both software/hardware). This used to be a time-consuming task which needed dedicated engineers to monitor and maintain these servers.
Instead of maintaining these servers I got inspired to automate and make these environments scalable, self-healing and immutable (stateless). This meant I had to learn more about the DevOps way of thinking and use tooling such as cloudformation, git, python and bash. By continuously developing myself I’ve learned to adapt myself quickly to new emerging technologies.
My next step is to focus on topics such as Serverless and Security but will still continue to automate and use Infrastructure as Code.
