Am, well here we are, thanks to Allah, I got another opportunity to get more responsibilities.

We had a lot to do with our development/staging/production environments, we need to manage users authentications and their authorizations from one place, and we need to have a different type of deployments which requires flexible deployment solution.

Deployment process was a painful issue, and it was new to me to decide which solution we should use Puppet/Chef/Ansible/Jenkins etc...

I liked the Ansible way of doing things, no need to have agents/clients installed in each machine and maintains those also. You only need one server to manage your automation.

POC for Ansible was prepared and requirements was gathered from developers and based on my knowledge about our development/staging/production environments I did my best to find a flexible implementation for our needs in the deployment process.

For users management, FreeIPA was a good choice. You can use it for authentication and authorization and more. It is also built with LDAP solution (389 Directory Server). You can read more about here https://www.freeipa.org.
It really was hard to implement this solution at the beginning, it has a robust integrated solutions LDAP, Kerberos, DNS, etc... I used our local EXSi to make a POC for it. Well, it was perfect and challenging.

Then starting to apply the implemented solutions for ansible and freeipa in the staging/production environments.

Experience Details

Linux Administrator

Installation/Maintenance/Repair, IT/Software Development

Entry Level

I was hired as the only Linux Admin supporting 10-20 employees in their environment whether it is development, staging, or production (10-15 of them were developer).

I took the responsibility (for a while) to handle help-desk/network tasks like managing company’s routers and setting up a VPN to provide site-to-site, one-to-site access, etc...

There were different programming language but I was mainly supporting Java projects.

Most technologies were new to me, but studied well, and supported with all my efforts I could provide.

Took the responsibility to configure different environments on cloud providers such as AWS and DigitalOcean, then prepare/maintain the instances (servers) with the required softwares and their configurations.

Took the responsibility to deploy the web app project. Working with a remote team I could get the CSR ready to be generated then get the SSL certificate and install it well on the web server.

Cassandra was new to me, but since I am familiar with non relational databases, I could get help using DataStax Academy virtual learning.
