About The Mountain

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is an Icelandic professional strongman, actor, and former professional basketball player. On 31 January 2015, Björnsson beat a 1000-year-old record set by Orm Storolfsson at the World’s Strongest Viking competition in Norway, where he carried a 10 m (33 ft) long 650 kg (1,430 lb) log for five steps

Hafþór was cast as Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane for the fourth season of the HBO series ‘Game of Thrones (2011)’ in August 2013. This was his first main acting role, and the third person to depict the character after Conan Stevens played the role in season 1 and Ian Whyte in season 2. He became the first actor to portray Clegane in more than one season with his appearances in season 5. [Source: IMDB]

Must Attend Sessions

Several of our experts, customers, and partners will lead break-out sessions on a variety of DMaaS topics


How SailPoint Modernized its
Datacenter with the Cloud

With offices in the U.S., India, and Israel, SailPoint had to find a way to protect against total site loss and guarantee 100% uptime. That was when they turned to the cloud, and embraced Druva’s cloud-native DMaaS solution, which helps them meet disaster recovery needs without investing in any additional infrastructure.

How GameStop Leveraged the Cloud to Meet
Business Continuity SLAs

GameStop had a myriad of virtualized environments with over 250 TB of data on-premises. Running on legacy solutions, they were unable to meet business continuity SLAs. With Druva’s unique cloud-native architecture, GameStop aggregated all their critical data, reduced costs, and achieved business continuity SLAs easily.
