Scott Davis End User Computing
I’ve been with VMware for 3 ½ years and in the world of virtualization far longer. I am currently CTO for VMware’s End User Computing B.U. and a core staff member in VMware’s Corporate CTO Office.
During my tenure at VMware, I’ve been involved in driving product and technology strategy spanning the breadth of VMware’s product lines, from Desktop to Data Center and Cloud initiatives and have also served as VMware's Chief Data Center Architect and Storage CTO. My background includes a mixture of both startup ventures and more established industry firms. Prior to joining VMware, I was Founder, President, and CTO of Virtual Iron Software, which originally created a unique clustered hypervisor that enabled virtual machines to span physical servers utilizing Infiniband as a shared memory-style interconnect. The company was later acquired by Oracle. I was also VP/CTO at Mangosoft, an Internet software and storage startup company with pioneering peer-to-peer clustering, caching and file system products. I spent the first part of my career at D.E.C. where I was Technical Director for VAXClusters and VMS Volume Shadowing products, as well as Digital’s Windows NT clustering technology (later sold to Microsoft as the genesis of Microsoft 'Wolfpack' Cluster Server).
One of the primary reasons I joined VMware was to work with brilliant folks along with what I saw as the rare opportunity to be a part of the next great sea change in the computer industry and I have to say, I haven’t been at all disappointed! Whether it’s the Data Center, Desktops, Storage, System Management, Application Frameworks or Cloud Computing to name just a few, VMware’s innovations are drastically changing the way we think about and deliver IT solutions. But let me talk more about that on my End User Computing
