Vaishnav Janardhan is a Principal Architect on the Media Engineering team at Akamai and leads the Data Insights efforts towards using Applied Machine Learning techniques to solve performance and scalability challenges in running a large distributed caching platform. Vaishnav previously worked on scaling Akamai’s video delivery platform for the rapid growth of online video. He has published and patented his work on the scaling the delivery platform through re-write of the file-systems, micro-architectural platform optimizations for faster response times, worked with the academic community to develop new caching algorithms for hierarchical caching and scaling monolithic web-caching proxy to work on highly parallel cpu architectures. Before Akamai, during his Graduate studies at Columbia he worked on developing a new online streaming protocols using peer-to-peer transport for highly cost effective and performant streaming platform.
