I’m now working at Joyent as a software developer and performance specialist. It’s an exciting role where I can work on interesting and new performance problems in cloud computing, as well as innovate in this space as part of a team of top software engineers. In some ways it is similar to the role I just left at Sun/Oracle: I was a software engineer on the Fishworks team where I was able to innovate in the field of storage, as well as being the performance lead for the ZFS storage appliances.
I’ll still very much be working with DTrace and performance at Joyent, along with other talented staff known in the DTrace community: Ben Rockwood, Jason Hoffman, and Bryan Cantrill: who is both the father of DTrace and my colleague for four years on the Fishworks team.
I’m looking forward to learning more about performance from the various interesting applications that Joyent’s customers are running, and finding ways I can help.
