Cloud Experience in detail

I started my Cloud journey with Azure in 2013 while prototyping the experience for Volvo In-Car delivery. We built it on Azure App Services, Azure SQL and was also testing Azure Traffic Manager for distributing user traffic over multiple locations.

For Volvo Cars I have been tech lead, developing digital services for Volvo Concept 26 car. Everything was hosted on Azure, at that moment the first version of Azure Stack was presented which was tested. We developed services that communicated with Azure Service Bus to decouple the different services as much as possible. In this project we also introduced Azure Redis Cache.

In a project with Husqvarna, I was in in charge of setting up a backend solution for connected vacuum cleaners. This solution was developed with Azure Virtual Machines to be able to use sockets which was not working with other Azure services at that time.

For Anticimex I did a first prototype of setting up EPiServer CMS on Azure. It worked fine even though EPiServer didn’t support Azure fully at that time. We had to migrate the current filesystem being used on EPiServer and use Azure Blob storage instead. One year later, the EPiServer DXC solution was introduced using Azure PaaS service, we introduced this to Mölnlycke Health Care and rebuild the entire web platform to EPiServer DXC running on Azure.

Currently I’m an adviser for Cargill Aqua Nutrition, helping out with technical solutions and architectural principles. Today we have migrated the entire software infratructure from on premise to AWS and Azure running in parallel. Cargill has an AWS strategy which means that most of the solution is built with AWS services. Solutions that does not support AWS are deployed in an Azure environment where data is transferred between the Cloud services using a secure AWS Direct Connect dedicated network.

When working for HiQ I have been in charge of moving every development project to Azure development environment. This includes migrating TFS to Azure Devops, migrating servers to Azure virtual machines, web sites to Azure App Services, databases to Azure SQL and using Devops Boards, Devops Repos and Devops Pipelines to enable a Continues Integration / Continues Deployment process for projects.
