Hardware failures happen every day. Imagine being able to not only tolerate such failures, but also mitigate and repair them -- all driven by software, while operating one of the largest datacenter footprints in the world. This talk will highlight some of the exciting problems we're working on inside Google to ensure we can optimally operate a fleet that is growing to provide (literally) exponential growth in computing capacity.

Luiz attended UIUC from June, 2004 to May, 2008, where he obtained a B.S. and an M.S. in Computer Science. His research focus, under the guidance of Professor Jiawei Han, was on data mining. Luiz was a member of the Latino/a CS Club and of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity at UIUC. Luiz started working at Google in Mountain View, CA, in 2008, and is currently a senior software engineering manager leading the team responsible for the health and lifecycle management of all machines in Google's datacenters.
