Jonas Jansen

RWTH Aachen, IT Center
IT Systemadministrator
Aachen, Germany
Jonas Jansen is the technical head of the Backup and Archive team at the IT Center. Since 2018, he is managing the object storage project, performed by the Server and Storage (SuS) group (which Backup and Archive is part of). SuS is a mainly hardware focused operation group running all centralized server and storage systems.

His career as system administrator started in 2014. Since 2015, he is with the RWTH Aachen. Within his current position, he is facing the rapidly growing demand for storage and compute resources every day, and meets those demands by frequent research for, and evaluation of new technologies. His tasks include the transfer of those technologies, like OpenStack Cloud or automation tools like Puppet or Ansible, into the daily routines for the whole team. Of course this needs to be done besides maintaining the stability of legacy technologies like tape libraries and modern infrastructure like virtualization clusters.
