I am a builder of cloud technology platforms and businesses. I work for IBM across many areas of the cloud business and research. I also write code to implement cloud security, systems reliability, configuration management, virtualization, power management, and mobile content delivery. Some of that code now lives in production commercial clouds.
I am a co-founder of the storied IBM Vulnerability Advisor, a cloud security assessment service which ensures that containers and images deployed in the IBM Cloud are safe from software vulnerabilities, malware and misconfigurations. As its technical lead, I spearheaded the successful integration of the Vulnerability Advisor into the IBM public cloud (a contemporaneous demo is found here), and subsequently into IBM Cloud Private.
In a past life, I built the Jettison energy-oriented VM consolidation system, the PageTailor Web customization framework, among other things. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, was a visiting scholar at Carnegie Mellon University, and a research collaborator at Bell Labs.
