Statement of Interest

Increase awareness, consideration and preference for open, standards-based, interoperable cloud services abstraction layer for infrastructure-as-a-service.


David is an old-school UNIX hacker with a penchant for distributed, real-time, high-peformance computing, immense amounts of data, and challenging problems to solve with innovative solutions.

David has fulfilled his need through with a career incorporating:

Academic research including  the first object-oriented UI system, the first persistent object-storage for C++ and the first Internet browser plug-ins.

Commercial research & development including the first data mining products, solutions and platforms from IBM, the first healthcare cloud service from Dell, and the first fully managed, support and private open, standard, cloud infrastructure-as-a-service offering from IBM: Zenith.

David is based at the Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CA.

He also finds time to hack on Internet-of-things, fish in his pond and enjoy his family.
