Vojtech joined the ICC lab through the IAESTE trainee programme.

He’s completed his  Masters study programme at the department of Computer science of the Technical University in Ostrava in Czech Republic. During his studies, he spent one year at Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in Finland participating in a double degree study program. His academic activities are mainly focused on computer vision and image segmentation.

Outside his studies, he has had diverse work experiences. He worked as a Web app Developer for Outotec Company during his stay in Finland. Afterwards he joined Verizon as a part-time Network Engineer for the period of time before he came to Switzerland.

ICCLab provides Vojtech a great opportunity to take  part in the fast moving  cloud computing industry and extend his horizons in this exciting field in a very international environment of young (and not so young!) technically talented people.

During his 10-month internship in ZHAW ICCLab he explored and compared different approaches for live virtual machine migration in an Openstack context. This work was done within the ICCLab’s energy aware cloud load management initiative.

Currently, he works on the ACeN KTI project focusing on network function virtualisation (NFV) in collaboration with two industry partners – Exoscale and Citrix.

Vojtech’s first day leads him to believe that besides the technical skills he will learn, he will also get unforgettable memories with new co-workers and friends.
