Hello, I’m Manuel. I help financial services companies engineer and operate highly available, fault-tolerant systems with predictable performance requirements.
Modern applications are required to be fault-tolerant and scalable, which means that they need to be distributed (single computers can fail, and even more so in shared cloud environments). Unfortunately, building and operating distributed systems is not an easy feat as the past 4 decades of distributed computing research have shown. To make things worse, there is no lack of available architectural approaches and technologies to choose from, more often than not being promoted as offering the perfect solution for all of your business needs and only seldomly being completely transparent as to their respective tradeoffs.
I have over a decade of hands-on experience with engineering and improving production systems in the finance and energy industries and can help your business meet the SLA targets for your critical services.
