Burak simplifies the lives of engineers with powerful, easy to use compute environments in the Cloud. @BurakYenier

Christian Kniep With a 10y journey rooted in the HPC parts of the german automotive industry, Christian started to support CAE applications and VR installations.
After getting bored with the small pieces, he became the InfiniBand go-to-guy while operating a 4000 node crash-test cluster and pivoted to the R&D department of Bulls BXI interconnect. When told at a conference that HPC can not learn anything from the emerging Cloud and BigData companies, he became curious and is now leading the containerization effort at Gaikai Inc. (part of Sony Interactive Entertainment).
Christian likes to explore new emerging trends by containerizing them first and seek application in the nebulous world of DevOps.

Holger Gantikow studied Computer Science at the University of Furtwangen and is working as a Senior Systems Engineer for Science + Computing AG in Tübingen since 2009. In his work, he deals with the complexity of heterogenous systems in CAE computation environments and servers customers utilizing technical and scientific applications. Ever since he started his professional career, virtualization and how it changes IT infrastructures gained his interest. This includes especially cloud management systems like OpenNebula and OpenStack, as well as the recently rediscovered container-based virtualization technology based on Docker.

Michael Bauer is an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan, where he is studying Computer Science & Engineering with a focus on computer architecture. He has spent the last 9 months working at the GSI national laboratory in Darmstadt, Germany, as an experimental systems researcher. For the last several months, he has been a developer of Singularity, an open source container solution designed for HPC.
