Today is my last day working at Sun Microsystems. Having declined my Oracle job offer, I am very excited to be moving to VMware to lead a new HPC effort, reporting to VMware’s CTO, Steve Herrod. I’ll be working internally across VMware to promote HPC technical requirements, and externally with customers and others in the HPC community to explain why virtualization is going to be the next big trend in HPC. I’ve covered some of this previously (here, here, here, and here) but there is much more to say, so stay tuned.
While I am going to miss my many friends and colleagues of thirteen or more years, I am totally psyched to be joining VMware!
