Ben Golub: From Storage to Docker and Back to Storage but now with Blockchain
When TNS Founder Alex Williams met with Ben Golub and Solomon Hykes at the Doug Fir in Portland, it was 2013 and OSCON was buzzing. Golub had found a home with Docker as CEO, following a successful run leading Gluster, the storage company that sold to Red Hat. Today, Golub is now the interim CEO at Storj and Hykes just a few weeks ago left Docker. Their departures are a discussion for another day. But they were leading in opening the market and since 2013, we do know, that containers have been widely adopted. The question now is about application-oriented architectures and the resources that they run on in an ever distributed manner. That is a topic that transcends discussions about containers and into topics that orient on application infrastructure and the influence of data architectures for building new predictive-modeling systems.
