Christian KniepHPC Software Architect, Sony Interactive Entertainment
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 pushing for containerization within Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Christian likes to explore new emerging trends by containerizing them first and seek application in the nebulous world of DevOps.
As an organiser of three workshops at ISC HPC and ISC Cloud as well as talking frequently at HPC Advisory Council events, FOSDEM and MeetUps, Christian has a long standing commitment to share valuable information about Linux Containers in the HPC and BigData community.
