With a background in Artificial Intelligence and Distributed Genetic Algorithms, David started his HPC career by managing an in-house cluster at the University of Limerick in Ireland, back in 2003. Since then, David has spent over 15 years working on large-scale HPC systems with a history of bringing award-winning products to market. With his vast knowledge of HPC computing, David observed that the complexity of integrating HPC frameworks into an OpenSource environment was a major hurdle for both commercial customers and research institutes alike. It became apparent that a Cloud product that enabled the simple and effective use of the vast library of license free software to satisfy various technology requirements didn’t actually exist, which is how vScaler Cloud was born.
