Research Focus at QCRI

Since August 2015, Anastasios has been working at Qatar Computing Research Institute as a systems engineer under the division of the Research Computing IT Infrastructure team. He mainly works on supporting, configuring and administering QCRI’s Private Cloud and Azure Public Cloud, back-end IT infrastructure systems, while coping with researchers’ requirements for IT infrastructure provisioning and services design and deployment.

QCRI has made great strides in the utilization of Private & Public Clouds, allowing researchers to self-provision IaaS, PaaS and other IT services, and Anastasios has contributed to this success. He is working extensively in the area of performance optimization of QCRI’s back-end systems, in the building of monitoring tools for the core systems of QCRI’s Private Cloud, and in helping researchers efficiently utilize resources and build services and applications, on top of our virtualized environment.

Anastasios is a focal point for designing and deploying services and applications, providing Linux-based servers (as virtual machines) to researchers, on top of our virtualized private cloud. He acts as a liaison between QCRI and vendors (VMware, EMC, DC services provider), for any support cases and escalation. He also documents architectural and functional specifications of QCRI's core internal systems, applications and infrastructure.
