Tokutek Founder Named to IOUG MySQL Council

 | February 2, 2011 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView


I am delighted to announce that Dr. Bradley Kuszmaul, Co-Founder and Chief Architect at Tokutek, has been appointed to the IOUG’s first MySQL Council. In the announcement on the IUOG website, president Andy Flower spoke highly of the MySQL Council’s new members Sarah Novotny, Sheeri Cabral, Giuseppe Maxia, Rob Wultsch, Matt Yonkovit and Bradley Kuszmaul:  “their passion, independent perspectives, experience and collective knowledge of MySQL will provide a solid framework for us to support our members and those interested in the MySQL evolution.”

When not building new companies, Dr. Kuszmaul is engaged in advanced database research. His entry won 5 out of 6 categories in Jim Gray’s 2007 benchmark contest, sorting a terabyte in 197 seconds. He formerly was the designer of Akamai’s distributed data collection system, was a Yale Professor of Computer Science, and was a principal network architect for the Thinking Machines CM-5 Supercomputer. Dr. Kuszmaul is currently a Research Scientist in the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL).

Follow up articles and commentary on the announcement can be found in places such as SearchOracle.com as well as newly minted ACE Giuseppe Maxia’s Data Charmer blog.

Congratulations Bradley!
