Europe’s giant science cloud: give people data and good things happen

Big Science in Europe has been busy and here at CloudSigma we’ve been heavily involved in helping to build a federated cloud platform that can address the needs of Big Science. It is something I’m personally very excited about as it holds then potential to unleash large-scale computing for some of the world’s thorniest problems including genetic research, climate change, disaster relief, high energy physics and more. Solving the world’s problems are increasingly relying on computing power to test assumptions, prove solutions and discover the behaviour of complex systems. Lets get computing in a highly flexible way into the hands of great scientists!

About Robert Jenkins

Robert is a Co-Founder and CEO of CloudSigma along with his long-time friend Patrick Baillie. Robert & Patrick had a vision for a different style of cloud focused around customer requirements not computing frameworks created by the service provider; an open environment where end-users could define their infrastructure in a highly flexible way with little or no restrictions, just like they were used to doing in their own private environments. Their shared vision was the genesis of CloudSigma in 2009 in Zürich, Switzerland and as with many great things, it began life sketched out on a napkin! Robert previously has experience in early stage venture capital and corporate finance in the City of London. Robert is a graduate in Economics from Cambridge University.
