“Computing Clusters and Cloud Elasticity –
Leveraging IaaS to Solve Real World Problems”
HPC and Datacenter Architect, Koballion Partners
With the arrival of cloud computing, it brings with it a paradigm shift. Shifting the thought of computers and its resources as location dependent, to considering all of its resources as always available, regardless of location. Thinking this way has many benefits for on-premise installations, especially as IT continues to scale upwards and outwards.
Edson Manners has a love of all things engineering. It could be in the way of a left-for-dead BMW, bringing it back to life or doing a full datacenter overhaul, improving its performance and modernizing its effectiveness, this is what makes Edson tick. Edson has been working with computers since his early childhood. While other kids were playing sports, his teen years entailed building out a full office suite of IT Systems for offshore banks and hotels. While at university, he was hired to do Wide Area Networking design on Campus. In his current role, Edson is leading a team in re-architecting a datacenter for one of the leading petroleum companies in the world. While most modern datacenter build-outs require knowledge in all areas of IT, Edson specializes in Hardware Acquisition, Infrastructure Architecting and installation, and base systems provisioning.
