A successful innovator and entrepreneur, Dave McCrory came to Basho from Warner Music Group, where, as SVP of engineering, he led the team that built their digital service platform. Dave was previously senior architect in Cloud Foundry at VMware and cloud architect at Dell. He also experienced successful exits from two companies he founded: Hyper9 (acquired by SolarWinds) and Surgient (acquired by Quest Software). Dave holds nine technology patents in virtualization, cloud, and systems management as co-inventor and created the “data gravity” concept, which states that as data accumulates, it’s more likely that other services and applications will be attracted to it.
