CANTURK ISCI

I am a researcher in IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in New York, where I also lead the Cloud Monitoring, Operational and DevOps Analytics team. I currently work on seamless, consumable monitoring and analytics techniques in the cloud. Among my current projects is the Agentless System Crawler, which is a Container and VM introspection technology that is used as the default monitoring and logging solution in production IBM Bluemix Cloud Service. We have recently open sourced this work developWorks Open. Together with my team, I continue to work on several operational and DevOps analytics solutions including compliance and vulnerability scanning, drift detection, configuration analytics, topology discovery, learning-based software discovery and a cloud time machine. We have recently launched a Vulnerability Advisor Service as part of IBM Bluemix Container Service. Besides crawling clouds, I have worked on energy management in data centers and virtualized systems, and served as the industry chair for the IEEE Sustainable Computing Committee. I developed a mobile data center robot for autonomous mapping and environmental monitoring in data centers, which has been deployed and used in four continents. Some of my past work on VM migration and VM Demand Estimation has been contributed to KVM and OpenStack. Prior to IBM, I was a Senior Technical Staff Member at VMware, working on distributed resource and power management. I published about 50 academic papers with several university collaborations and about 30 patents with IBM, Intel, and VMware. I have a PhD in computer architecture from Princeton University and an MSc with Distinction in VLSI system design from University of Westminster. My handle: @canturkisci
