Dr. Greg Bollella, CTO, Internet-of-Things, VMware, Inc., has been interested in algorithms and software architectures that support the deterministic execution of logic within general-purpose operating systems and virtual machines since 1992. At VMware he is investigating infrastructure management for the Internet-of-Things. While a Senior Engineer at IBM, he was fundamental to the industry effort that spurred the creation of the Java Community Process and established JSR-01 the first activity under the JCP and led the JSR-01 Expert Group that defined the Real-Time Specification for Java. During his work on the Golden Gate project at Sun he concurrently held a position, for four years, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, as Distinguished Visiting Scientist. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation research is in real-time scheduling theory and real-time systems implementation. This work creates an architecture that defines fundamental issues that are necessary for supporting real-time applications within general-purpose operating systems and language runtimes.
