Tom Fifield

After learning about scalability in computing from particle physics experiments like ATLAS at the Large Hadron Collider, Tom led the creation of the NeCTAR Research Cloud - designed for the publicly-funded research sector in Australia. It currently serves more than 3000 researchers directly, and is expanding to a capacity of 30,000 cores over 8 sites distributed over every major city. Following working as a cloud architecture consultant and team lead for several years, Tom is currently harnessing his passion for large scale distributed systems by focusing on their most important part: people. As Community Manager at the OpenStack Foundation it's his job to make the users and developers of OpenStack happy.
