All around you hear people taking a firm stand - whether it is pro-Cloud or against it. Almost like "would you prefer Chocolate or Vanilla ice cream?" Well, I like both! On this talk, I would like to suggest a more inclusive approach, sharing Outbrain journey in the attempt to enjoy both worlds.
I WANT IT ALL - Go Hybrid
I am a SaaS Operations veteran with over 17 years experience in this evolving field. In the past ~5 years I have been with Outbrain, the world's leading discovery platform, bringing personalised, relevant online, mobile and video content to audiences while helping publishers understand their audiences through data. As VP Cloud Platform, I am responsible for all the infrastructure and platform aspects used to perform this task. We manage a fleet of ~6000 physical servers in several DC across the world, and have presence both on AWS and GCP. Prior to Outbrain I held several roles at the SaaS Operations industry at various companies such as RSA, the Security Devision of EMC, Cyota and others.
