Part one of a two part interview series with tinkering whizz-kid and OneKloud CTO.

 

What’s up Xavier, can you introduce yourself?

I compiled my first Linux Kernel at eight years old. As a kid I used to disassemble just about everything I could get my hands on. At ten years old I modified the electronics of my first walkie-talkies to try to tune into the police frequency. Then I started coding, the first thing I did was was to clone my mom's cell-phone sim card so I could use her phone without her knowing. My second project was to clone the television’s satellite card so I could watch cable on my computer… I’ve always been into tinkering, fiddling.

These eternal concerns of capacity planning experts are more relevant than ever, despite the dematerialization of many of a company's “resources” as computing power migrates to the cloud. The main attributes of the cloud environment: flexibility and scalability, rhyme with unpredictability. Capacity planning is confronted with a range of new challenges as the scope shifts from hard iron to IaaS.
