Christian Saide
DevOps Engineer, NS1


Christian Saide is a DevOps engineer at NS1, where he has been a key player in automating, hardening, and scaling out its systems, particularly by pushing more and more of its infrastructure into container-based architectures and implementing solutions to the tough problems surrounding global distribution. He also served a critical role in NS1’s move to software-defined networking and authored the primary software-defined networking device and network topology. Christian has been working in the technology sector for five years, focusing on networking and distributed systems. Previously, he was at Industrial Color Software, where he climbed from a midlevel software developer to director of development operations and was instrumental in taking the company’s aging infrastructure from a handful of bare-metal servers to multiple virtualization hosts running hundreds of virtual machines, which in turn supported hundreds of containers.
