Please bear with me…


I’ve only just started this blog, after spending over 20 years in the industry as a full-stack developer, Linux admin, MySQL DBA, Data Architect and Infrastructure Architect.

My current specialist areas are MySQL and Amazon Web Services (AWS). In the MySQL space, I work with all areas from installation and upgrade, to performance tuning and High Availability configurations.

In the MySQL space, I work with all areas from installation and upgrade, to Performance Tuning and High Availability configurations – in particular, backup and restore, automatic fail-over and disaster recovery.

I cover most areas of AWS, with a particular focus on automated infrastructure builds using Terraform and Ansible of the full stack from CloudFront through Elastic Load Balancing to EC2 instances, Redshift, DynamoDB, S3 and RDS databases – focusing here on MySQL and Aurora.

I intend to write a number of articles on the areas I have worked on, highlighting some of the challenges and how to overcome them. Hopefully, this will be of some use to anyone who stumbles across this site in the future!
