Product Management Committee Member | Engineering Manager, Cloudera


Wangda Tan is a product management committee (PMC) member of Apache Hadoop and engineering manager of the computation platform team at Cloudera. He manages all efforts related to Kubernetes and YARN for both on-cloud and on-premises use cases of Cloudera. His primary areas of interest are the YuniKorn scheduler (scheduling containers across YARN and Kubernetes) and the Hadoop submarine project (running a deep learning workload across YARN and Kubernetes). He’s also led features like resource scheduling, GPU isolation, node labeling, resource preemption, etc., efforts in the Hadoop YARN community. Previously, he worked on integration of OpenMPI and GraphLab with Hadoop YARN at Pivotal and participated in creating a large-scale machine learning, matrix, and statistics computation program using MapReduce and MPI and Alibaba.
