Freelancer IT Consultant
I became an independent IT consultant in Apr 2015. I have been travelling and worked on small IT projects as a consultant and engineer from time to time. The projects I participated in included IP network deployment, data centre migration, cloud design, etc.
- Helped an India company deploy several cisco routers(2900 Series) in a Chinese data centre. The work included hardware installation, configuring OSPF to peer with other sites, configuring access list and authentication.
- Designed an IT infrastructure based on AWS for a gaming startup. Optimised their current infrastructure using CDN and load balancer to reduce latency and server usage.
- Migrated a small data centre together with other engineers. My part was to plan and provision the IP network in the new location, made sure it functioned normally to support the servers and storages. Most equipment was moved from the old location except for two core Cisco routers, which was replaced by two new high-end Huawei routers. I translated the configuration from Cisco to Huawei and the migration was successful.
