Igor Andrade

SysOps Senior at HostGator LatAm

I am a seasoned SysOps and security analyst with over 8 years of experience in administering and auditing both Linux and Windows servers. My passion lies in Linux, and I have spent a significant amount of time exploring and dissecting the system in every way possible. Whether it's creating scripts to automate tasks or testing various distributions and their functions, I love everything about Linux. My expertise in process automation, observability, obfuscation, spam analysis (mail), mitigation, virtualization, containerization, shell scripting, Python, regex, service optimization (capacity planning), and server monitoring with Zabbix/Grafana, makes me a versatile and proficient professional. My daily routine includes drinking coffee while monitoring systems with Zabbix, consuming logs in Graylog or Datadog, and performing a variety of tests and alerts when necessary. Currently, I work as a Senior SysOps at HostGator LatAm where I also consume APIs with Python, build APIs with Flask, and display data critical of our core on Grafana. Additionally, I manage the DevOps side of the business with Ansible and Puppet while utilizing AWS tools such as S3, CloudWatch, EC2, and Route53.
Also i am keeper of debian-pb.org, i use as my blog for write articles about linux based debian and about security, that you can visit clicking at section "Blog".
