People behind ETP4HPC - Sai Narasimhamurthy, SRA Technical Leader


Our association is run on a day-to-day basis by our Office staff, a virtual team distributed over Europe and working either from home or hosted by an ETP4HPC member. You will certainly have heard them on our All-Members Calls or on our webinars, or perhaps met them in person at one of our General Assemblies or at ISC. The ETP4HPC just recruited two new Office staff members: discover who they are and give them a warm welcome!

Welcome to Sai Narasimhamurthy

Sai Narasimhamurthy is our new Office expert in charge of the ETP4HPC Strategic Research Agenda, gradually taking over the role of Michael Malms - who will retire for good after several successful SRAs! Sai is no newcomer to the HPC community or to ETP4HPC: for many years, he was our VP for Industry, representing Seagate in our Steering Board, and he has been involved in several funded European projects. In short, Sai was the ideal candidate for this key position within the ETP4HPC Office, and we're delighted that he's continuing his career with us! Sai is based in the United Kingdom, he is contracted from our founding member ParTec.

As the SRA Technical Leader, Sai will be the Editor-in-Chief for the SRA and other technical documents such as white papers. He will lead and orchestrate the work of our large multinational team of technology experts in various HPC technology domains, who represent ETP4HPC member organisations as well as partner associations. His role will be particularly important at a time when we are considering the future of the SRA and the shape it should take in the years ahead.

Sai is Senior Technologist and Project Manager (R&D) working with ParTec AG. Sai previously headed EU R&D for Seagate Systems where he has actively led and contributed to multiple European led HPC and Cloud research initiatives over a decade, incl. coordinating and providing technical leadership for projects such as SAGE and Sage2. Going back, Sai was CTO and Co-founder at 4Blox, inc, a venture capital backed storage infrastructure software company in California addressing IP SAN(Storage Area Network) performance issues. Sai obtained his PhD from Arizona State University in the area of high performance data storage.
