Dr. Greg Bollella has been interested in algorithms and software architectures that support the deterministic execution of logic within general-purpose operating systems and virtual machines since 1992. At VMware he investigates real-time virtualization and Cloud Computing for The Internet-of-Things. While a Senior Engineer at IBM, he was fundamental to the industry effort that spurred the creation of the Java Community Process, established JSR-01, the first activity under the JCP, and led the JSR-01 Expert Group that defined the Real-Time Specification for Java. During his work on the Golden Gate project at Sun he concurrently held a Distinguished Visiting Scientist position for four years at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation research is in real-time scheduling theory and real-time systems implementation. This work creates an architecture that defines fundamental issues that are necessary for supporting real-time applications within general-purpose operating systems and language runtimes.
VMware and the Internet of Things: Liota

This is my second CTO blog on VMware and the Internet of Things (‘IoT’). I’ll begin by covering our overall IoT strategy, beginning with the Little IoT Agent (‘Liota’). I’ll briefly review my first blog, Motivating the Three-Tier Architecture. Many believe that a three-tier architecture will dominate the emerging IoT infrastructure: sensors and actuators (let’s […]

VMware and the Internet of Things: Motivating the Three-Tier Architecture

This is the first CTO blog post on VMware and the Internet of Things (‘IoT’) that right now is placed at the top of the Gartner Hype Cycle. In this first post in this series, I’ll lay out the latest thinking on the high-level structure of an IoT Infrastructure we see beginning to be established. […]
