Stuart Pook
Senior DevOps Engineer, Criteo


Stuart Pook is senior DevOps engineer at Criteo, where he is part of Criteo’s Lake team that runs some small and two rather large Hadoop clusters. Stuart loves storage (208 PB at Criteo) and automation with Chef, because configuring more than 3,000 Hadoop nodes by hand is just too slow. Before discovering Hadoop, he developed
user interfaces and databases for biotech companies. Stuart has presented at ACM CHI 2000, Devoxx 2016, NABD 2016, Hadoop Summit Tokyo 2016, Apache Big Data Europe 2016, Big Data Tech Warsaw 2017, and Apache Big Data North America 2017.

These clusters were meant to provide a redundant solution to Criteo's storage and compute needs. Stuart Pook offers an overview of the project, shares challenges and lessons learned, and discusses Criteo's progress in building another cluster to survive the loss of a full DC. Read more.
