HPC Specialist, Server Infrastructure and Solutions, Office of the CTO, Dell Technologies Chuck Gilbert is part of Dell Technologies Server and Infrastructure Systems (SIS) Office of the CTO as an HPC Technologist. Chuck brings over a decade of deep expertise across multiple verticals in High Performance Computing and Distributed Processing System architectures and operations.
Prior to joining Dell Technologies, Chuck worked as a software/infrastructure engineer in the defense and intelligence industry deploying large scale, mission processing infrastructures employing full stack solutions.
Chuck was also previously Technical Director and Chief Architect for the Institute for CyberScience – Penn State University. During Chuck’s tenure at Penn State, he architected, deployed, and operated a greenfield HPC architecture incorporating a new State-of-the-art Datacenter, scalable commodity building blocks, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) platform automation as well proof-of-concepts on seamless hybrid cloud bursting across on-prem virtualized infrastructure, as well as multiple public cloud providers.
Chuck also previously worked at Oracle, where he was part of the Product Management team responsible for building out their 2nd generation bare metal HPC capabilities in the cloud.
HPC and AI Strategist, Office of the CTO, Dell Technologies
Jeff has spent his career working at the leading edge of compute and networking. Jeff is currently working in the Server Office of the CTO as the HPC and AI Technology Strategist where he has helped grow the HPC program with a new vision, strategy, business development efforts, and new partnerships and solutions.
Prior to joining Dell EMC, Jeff worked at several cutting edge semi-conductor companies. At AMD he specialized in superscalar RISC and x86 platforms for high performance computation (1999). At Mellanox he worked on some of the first InfiniBand HPC installations, including the Virginia Tech cluster that reached number three on the top 500 (Big Mac) using Apple workstations (Nov 2004). While at Mellanox he supported Dr. D.K. Panda and the first implementation of MVAPICH at his alma mater, The Ohio State University. Later at Solarflare his focus was OS bypass technology and financial markets (2010).
After moving to Dell, Jeff worked in Dell Networking implementing their first Fibre Channel over Ethernet systems and he holds several patents on FCoE (2013). His interest in low latency high performance fabrics has grown as the size of HPC systems has increased.
Senior VP / Senior Fellow, Office of the CTO, Dell Technologies
Jimmy D. Pike is an SVP / Senior Fellow and senior system architect in the office of the Integrated System Group (ISG) CTO. In this role, he helps determine how emerging technology will be practically applied to Dell products with specific foci in large system (high-performance computing and hyperscale), machine learning / deep learning, and all data transformation systems.
With more than 40 years in the IT industry, Jimmy is known for his early pioneering work in Symmetric Multiprocessing Systems (SMP) and more recently as a co-founder of Dell Data Center Solutions Group addressing the hyperscale and HPC systems. He has more numerous patents and has served in key technical and executive roles at Dell, Moor Insights and Strategy, Dell, Intel, AT&T, NCR, and Harris.
