演讲主题：Azure and Hyperscale industry trends
演讲嘉宾: Dr. Leendert van Doorn -Distinguished Engineer/VP in Microsoft’s Azure Core team
My talk consists of two parts. The first part is a brief introduction and examples of interesting projects I have worked on during my career. The purpose of this introduction is to give you an idea of the kind of problems I like to take on.
In the second part, I will talk about the system trends that will be impacting Hyperscalers over the next 5+ years. I’ll be using Azure as an example, but these trends apply equally well to other hyperscalers. I will talk about a range of topics from business objectives to (industry) hardware trends and the associated software trends. My focus will be primarily on the opportunities and the challenges these trends create. I will discuss “solutions” where they exist but, in many cases, these are open problems where the outcome is still unclear.
Dr. Leendert van Doorn is a Distinguished Engineer/VP in Microsoft’s Azure Core team where he is best known for his work on enabling ARM64 servers as first-class citizens in Microsoft’s Azure datacenters. He has also been working on disaggregation and he represents Microsoft on the board of Directors for the Compute Express Link (CXL) and the Gen-Z organizations.
Before joining Microsoft, he was a Corporate Fellow/CVP at AMD where he was responsible for AMD’s security efforts, software innovations and he was the technical executive during the creation of AMD’s China JV.
Leendert joined AMD from IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center, where he was a Researcher and Sr. Manager leading the secure systems team, the ethical hacker’s team and a security usability and privacy team. At IBM he worked on physically secure coprocessors, secure Hypervisors, TPM’s, wireless security scanners and he added full virtualization support to Xen in collaboration with Intel and AMD.
When conference calls and meetings are getting too much, he has been known to find refuge at CMU ECE where he is an adjunct professor.
Leendert holds a Ph.D. from the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and an engineering degree from the HTS in The Hague, The Netherlands. During his formative Ph.D. years, he had the good fortune to intern two summers at Digital’s System Research Center and one summer at AT&T Bell Labs. Both places made a lasting impact on how he thinks and works today.
