Ludovic Rivallain

I am currently senior Virtualisation Engineer+SysAdmin in SII Group, a French IT consulting company. Before that I used to work as tech leader of SRE (run/operations) team of the Private Cloud offer at OVH hosting company.

I work mainly on VMware based virtual infrastructures, “IaaS/PaaS” cloud computing offers for key accounts (architecture, automation and orchestration, disaster recovery plans, trainings…).

And as I might be a little lazy sometimes, I love automation concepts and I deal with Python, Powershell and/or Bash scripts daily.

I’m also self-interested in open-source solutions like #Docker, #OpenStack, #Ansible

Passionate by scripting, I’m using Python and Powershell daily to automate actions on the “IaaS” platforms.
