System administrator for almost 6 years, I offer outsourcing services, maintenance services and support through my company VirtuBox. My areas of expertise are the deployment and maintenance of infrastructure (s) for web hosting.
After a general scientific baccalaureate, I obtained in 2013 an Associate’s degree, Networks and Telecommunication at the University of Poitiers, then a Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.), Network and systems administration in 2014 at the University of Pau and Pays de l'Adour
The missions I've been working on range from setting up a linux server to hosting a WordPress site to deploying a high-availability infrastructure composed of several servers. I carry out regular audits on security and performance aspects and offer advice on designing, implementing and deploying hosting solutions.
Attached to the culture of free and open-source, I am lead developer of the open-source project WordOps. This is a command-line application that enables automated deployment of sites with Nginx. I also regularly write articles and tutorials on my blog Jesuisadmin.

What my customers thinks about me
Thomas has been excellent on this project. This was a very difficult deployment of a complex technical challenge that we had really struggled with. Thomas gave us fresh ideas and several possible new approaches, and then worked through these to find a method that was viable. He then worked with us throughout testing, to ensure we had a smooth go-live with no problems in production. He saw a difficult task through to completion, with good communication with me throughout the process. Based on this project, I can highly recommend him to you.

Thomas was a very hard worker and completed the job in less hours than expected. Thomas looked at our current environment and communicated what could be improved on the existing server and also advised the benefits of migrating to a new server instance. We choose to go for the latter and Thomas successfully built the new environment from scratch, optimised then migrated our site at an agreed time. The process was handled with just a few minutes of down time (in the early hours of the morning). Since the migration, the site has performed much better than it was prior to hiring Thomas, which was the goal. Overall I am very happy with the work Thomas carried out, he is a credit to Upwork and he will be the first person I contact if I need to hire for any similar jobs in the future.
