My name is Jason and I am from down under (Sydney, Australia), I have been passionate about cryptocurrency since 2017 and have been following Cardano ever since.
My dream is to work full time in this space but until then my 9 to 5 job is as an Enterprise Infrastructure Architect.

We leverage the AWS ecosystem to run our stake pool operations, we have 7 servers running across 4 AWS regions (Germany, US, Japan, Australia), they comprise of 4 relays, 1 block producer with warm standby and 1 monitoring server.
All servers are configured to communicate with each other through the AWS internal backbone instead of the public Internet through VPC peering which improves security and optimises performance and cost.
In terms of the relays, we have 4 operating across four different regions providing ample redundancy at the same time ensuring we are well connected.
In terms of the block producing node where only one can be running at a time, we have configured a warm standby. The warm standby node is running as a passive node allowing it to remain in sync with the tip, we then have the required files located on the server in readiness to start up at the block producing node.
The warm standby is also running in the same security group as the block producer, in the event of outages to the block producer its simply a matter of flipping over the IP address (elastic IP) and starting the warm standby as the block producing node.
My background and strength for the last two decades are in technology infrastructure, I have designed enterprise networks, data centres and cloud solutions for various organisations. My DevOps and Linux skills are relatively new in comparison however since being involved in the ITN from the start it has come a long way
