Christian Reis aka Kiko, VP Hyperscale at Canonical, Mythology and Potential of the ARM Server

Posted by – December 10, 2014

ARM is the most interesting thing that could happen to servers in decades: a chance to redefine system architecture, form-factor, hardware acceleration, power consumption and the supplier ecosystem. It’s also a chance to throw away legacy and build the ideal platform for a post-cloud world (whatever that means) — if we keep our eyes on that goal. This is Kiko’s view on where we are and where we need to be in order to turn opportunity into industry-defining success.

Christian Reis – VP Hyperscale at Canonical, Kiko is responsible for next-generation server engagements & technology, including Ubuntu Server for ARM and the provisioning solution MAAS. Prior to this role, Kiko was assigned as VP Engineering to Linaro, where he participated in the organization’s conceptualization and creation. Kiko holds an MSc in Software Engineering from USP and resides in São Carlos, Brazil.

Here’s Kiko’s keynote video: “Mythology and Potential of the ARM Server”:
