Work History

IT Databases Team Leader

2011 - Present
Lumata Italia srl

From the November 2011, I am working at Lumata Ltd., where I am the leader of the Database and Backup Team.
In Lumata I built my team, doing a lot of interviews and selecting three people.
In addition to the team in Italy, I was a consultant for the selection of two MySQL DBA in favour of the Indian office of Lumata.

In Lumata I designed and implemented the entire architecture of the Database, all the infrastructure is in High Availability, using proprietary technologies and methods of replication suggested by MySQL.

Currently I and my team of three people, we are managing a lot of MySQL instances, ensuring availability, in the last 3 months of 99.99%.
For some internal projects, aimed at collecting data for the reversal of costs to customers, I have used, even if not so thorough, some NoSQL databases, and in particular I used Riak and MongoDB.

I am in charge, also, to set up and ensure the proper functioning of the enterprise backup, performed with the Enterprise Backup Tool EMC Legato Networker.

In addition to the management and implementation of new services, I was responsible, during the separation from Buongiorno, for the migration of data from Buongiorno to Lumata, migrating instances of MySQL to version 5.6 with UTF8 characters.
