Anastassios (Tassos for short) is a systems architect, passionate about research, with a special interest in low-level systems software & virtualization. He's excited about optimizing the execution environment for multi-tier applications, especially in the context of resource-constrained devices.

Anastassios Nanos is a researcher and systems architect at Nubificus LTD, UK. Previously, he was conducting research in emerging, power-efficient micro-server architectures on scalable network and storage I/O, and energy-driven resource management in cloud architectures. His work consisted mostly of architecting and implementing low-level hypervisor and OS mechanisms in the context of EU-funded projects (EUROSERVER, SHARCS, ACTICLOUD, SUPERFLUIDITY). He has been affiliated with various companies and organizations such as OnApp Ltd., CSLab at NTUA (ICCS), Sunlight.IO etc.

He received his PhD in Computer Engineering in 2013 from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and has over 14 years of experience in the engineering of complex, high-performance systems. He is working on several parts of the OS software stack, including device drivers, memory management, network/block layers and virtualization. He has several peer-reviewed publications and has been a reviewer for major ACM and IEEE conferences and journals. Since 2012 he has served as a co-chair for the Virtualization on High-Performance Cloud computing (VHPC) workshop series held in conjunction with EuroPar, SC and ISC.
