Sachin was instrumental in designing the AWS solution for our website. The website solution is a sitecore content management and MS Windows stack hosted on VMware in a private data center in Chicago. Serving a worldwide audience from one location was less than ideal and we wanted to replace it with an AWS hosted solution fronted by the Cloudfront CDN. Sachin worked with our architecture and operations teams to create and maintain all infrastructure as code. Great work!
