Tim Ellis presided over some of the larger MySQL installations during the 2000-2011 timeframe at such places as Digg, Mozilla, Riot Games (League of Legends), and StumbleUpon. Running large scaled database installations using Opsdev methodologies was his specialty.
In the last 5 years, he has begun specialising in building hybrid database clusters, using MySQL for relational data and various distributed databases (often called "NoSQL") to store key/value or sparse hash map data.
He has always been a strong proponent of using the right tool for the job, which can sometimes be a surprising and radical notion.
