William Bain

Dr. William L. Bain founded ScaleOut Software in 2003 to develop in-memory data grid and in-memory computing products. As CEO, he has led the creation of numerous innovations for integrating data-parallel computing with in-memory data storage. Bill holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Rice University. Over a 38-year career focused on parallel computing, he has contributed to advancements at Bell Labs Research, Intel, and Microsoft, and holds several patents in computer architecture and distributed computing. Bill founded and ran three start-up companies prior to ScaleOut Software. The most recent, Valence Research, which developed and distributed Web load-balancing software, was acquired by Microsoft Corporation and is a key feature within the Windows Server operating system. As an investor and member of the screening committee for the Seattle-based Alliance of Angels, Bill is actively involved in entrepreneurship and the angel community.

Bill has presented at the prior three IMCS conferences in San Francisco.

Wednesday 21st, 14:35 - Matterhorn 3
This talk is targeted at application developers who want to explore the use of in-memory computing for streaming analytics. The talk’s goal is to describe a key limitation (tracking streaming context) of current techniques (e.g., Spark streaming) and describe a new approach (implementing a digital twin using an in-memory data grid) that overcomes…
