What you can learn from Oskar Stal and Adrian Gardner

Oskar Stal leads the tech team at cloud-powered Spotify since late-2009 – he understands the inside out of the operational of the world’s largest music streaming service.

Adrian Gardner – CIO of NASA since mid-2010 – is responsible for providing NASA with everything that can effectively and securely support management, science, research, and technology programs, as well as developing, implementing, and operating specialised IT systems to support NASA mission planning and operation.

Spotify’s bread and butter is its big data; with 15 million song library, accessed by 25 million users worldwide, the cloud plays an important role in keeping every song accessible, reliable and secure.

NASA, in the other hand, is a true adopter of the cloud: From infrastructure to research, everything is supported by Nebula, NASA’s own cloud platform.
