Todd Lipcon is an engineer at Cloudera, where he primarily contributes to open source distributed systems in the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. Previously, he focused on Apache HBase, HDFS, and MapReduce, where he designed and implemented redundant metadata storage for the NameNode (QuorumJournalManager), ZooKeeper-based automatic failover, and numerous performance, durability, and stability improvements. In 2012, Todd founded the Apache Kudu project and has spent the last three years leading this team. Todd is a committer and PMC member on Apache HBase, Hadoop, Thrift, and Kudu, as well as a member of the Apache Software Foundation. Prior to Cloudera, Todd worked on web infrastructure at several startups and researched novel machine learning methods for collaborative filtering. Todd holds a bachelor’s degree with honors from Brown University.
