I’m not sure how I missed this yesterday, but my pal Dave Morton is moving up in the world. According to a press release yesterday LNXI
announced that it has named high-performance computing (HPC) industry veteran Dave Morton as its new chief technology officer (CTO). Mr. Morton has over 17 years of experience in HPC as both a vendor and end user, serving in senior positions at the Maui High Performance Computer Center, Silicon Graphics Inc (SGI), and Cray Research. An expert in HPC hardware and software engineering and development, Mr. Morton will drive Linux Networx’s continued focus on delivering greater value to customers through systems that are easy to use and deploy.
Dave and I worked together in the DOD’s HPC Modernization Program, and he’s a swell guy. Congratulations, Dave!
