Internal work

I set strategy and implement IT hardware and software projects. It's quite a challenge:

  • We have in excess of 1 petabyte of storage
  • Our compute grid comprises of ≈ 350x NVidia Pascal based GPU devices, they process millions of models a month via HTCondor
  • We run our own data centres and also utilise Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure for a hybrid cloud setup
  • Many of our government clients require highly available systems and have complex support requirements
