Projects

  • Prosche AG, Stremzilla: Streamzilla aims to be the one-stop shop for all the data streaming needs within Porsche. It is an internally managed service that enables different engineering product teams to build and run applications that take advantage of the low latency, high throughput and fault tolerance capabilities of the Apache Kafka distributed system along with Apache NiFi. Streamzilla is designed with a cloud-agnostic approach to be highly salable and ready to ship in cloud, hybrid cloud, and on-premise environments. (Cocus AG, 2021-2022).
  • Fidor Bank, Migrating legacy database to a modern data-warehouse: Fidor Bank is a local german bank with millions of transactions per day and uses legacy RDBMS clusters that need to migrate to a modern data warehouse. The new Data-warehouse is taking advantage of the Infrastructure-as-Code approach using ansible to be highly scalable and ready to ship in any public/private cloud providers and take advantage of consistency of Data using Galera and avoids Split-Brain situation using ProxySQL by diverging Readers and Writers DataNodes.(Cocus AG, 2022-2022).
  • Unbelievable-Machine, UMCP: Unbelievable Machine Cloud Platform aims to be managed Private-Cloud platform for B2B Customer Service. It is a fully managed service that enables different engineering product teams to build and run applications that take advantage of the scalability and high availability of Red-Hat OpenShift and K-Native to leverage Micro Services of Software Stack. UMCP deployed fully automated using Ansible Framework to be configurable at scale and managed capably.(*um, 2020-2021).
  • BMW, CNBDP: Cloud-Native Big Data Platform aims to be a managed BigData platform for Data-Processing within BMW AG. It is an internally managed service that enables different engineering product teams to build and run applications for high throughput data. Hundreds of petabytes of data were stored on HDFS, and Hundreds of gigabytes of data were ingested/streamed daily using Hadoop ecosystem tools such as Spark, Hive, Hbase, and Oozie, etc. CNBDP takes advantage of the Infrastructure-as-Code approach leveraging the toolset of Ansible and Ambari to be highly scalable and ready to ship in any infrastructure.(*um, 2019-2021).
