McLaren comes to Zoned Properties with a strong professional background in the social, economic, and environmental development of complex business organizations. For nearly a decade he has been working across a variety of roles in the sustainability industry. McLaren holds a Bachelors of Business Administration (B.B.A.) with an emphasis on ethical studies from the University of San Diego, a Masters of Sustainability (M.A.) from Northern Arizona University, and is trained in sustainable architecture design with an accreditation as a Green Roof Professional (G.R.P.).

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
