MARTIN SUMNER - Martin Sumner is a technology consultant who has recently been focused on designing and building systems for the National Health Service in England in different capacities.

The NHS is one of the world’s five biggest employers, and the Spine is its core IT system which is responsible for containing a central store of about 1.5 billion records and documents. Day-to-day, Martin provides technical leadership for this large-scale Spine Core system.

It is under Martin's supervision that the choice to deploy Riak KV into the NHS was made. Martin chose to use Basho’s Riak KV to improve capacity while reducing the cost of running Spine, but maintain availability and safeguard against data loss.
