How To Automate Your Big Data Infrastructure
Tim McIntire - CEO @ StackIQ
Tim McIntire co-founded StackIQ to bring the cluster computing sector’s thriving open source community into the enterprise. His vision led to StackIQ’s development of the commercial version of Rocks, which dramatically reduces the time and cost of setting up and managing clusters through intelligent multi-server software automation. This work resulted in partnerships with Amazon, HP, Dell, Intel (and others), which has enabled StackIQ to bootstrap through its first four years. McIntire’s previous work includes leading the development team at the Digital Image Analysis Lab at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. His research, which was primarily funded as part of NASA’s Direct Broadcast program, has been published in various IEEE and Elsevier Journals on topics ranging from remote sensing using neural networks to parallel image processing using HPC Clusters. He also has contributed to or been featured in IBM developerWorks, HPCwire, Bio IT World, Apple Developer Connection and the computational science magazine, enVision. McIntire received a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego.
