Nokia SDN and Software Automation Engineer Co-Op [ May 2021 - Present ]
Developed custom control loop to maintain desired state of K8s cluster with multiple VMs and SR-Linux Routers. A typical Clos topology has multiple DC gateways connected to spine routers which in turn are connected to leaf routers. Below the leaf there are workload VMs. All of this formed the K8s cluster wherein I developed a daemonset which runs a custom container image as a pod on each node. This custom docker image contained python code to detect new service being added into the cluster and then trigger LLDP (Local Link Discovery Protocol) to find the neighboring leaf and make subsequent GNMI calls to it to update its routing table and other configurations.
developed a web portal with in-browser console and drag drop functionality to configure and auto-deploy a given Clos topology
Contributed towards K8s YAML generation with GPT-3’s NLP for predefined scenarios of Telco & Web-scale DC cloud topologies.
