Chris is focusing on building a healthy infrastructure culture using automation, empathy, and best practices.
Working with Google Cloud Professional Services customers to engineer a proper GCP infrastructure culture based on Terraform automation. Simplicity and empathy for users are the success criteria for each infrastructure.
Engineered and deployed the Hashicorp stack, Consul, Vault, and Nomad, into a hybrid datacenters/cloud infrastructure. Ensured the state of AWS with Terraform and Ansible.
Partnered with Google, performed the heavy lifting of migrating existing infrastructures to Google Cloud. Starting with a deep dive Architectural Review, mapped out the current state of infrastructure with special attention paid to technical debt, cultural debt and lastly infrastructure sizing. Forklifting the existing infrastructure with as little change as possible to ensure a parity test scenario, the goal was a fully automated replica of the current infrastructure hosted in Google Cloud and stored in a git repo.
