He has been the initial author of the RFIO remote file access protocol, still in use today. From 1994 he took the responsibility of operating the Physics Data Processing Services at CERN (100’s of machines, Terabytes’s of data, Gigabit/second interconnections). As of 1998 he took responsibility of CERN Windows service (> 5000 computers) and later Mail and Web Services.
