Lew Tucker, Cisco
Lew Tucker is Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Cloud Computing at Cisco. He is a recognized leader in the industry focused on emerging technologies - having played a part in several major high-tech waves including high-performance computing, Java technology and, now, cloud computing.
Prior to joining Cisco, Lew was Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Cloud Computing at Sun Microsystems, where he led the development of its infrastructure-as-a-service offering. He has over 20 years experience in the high-tech industry—ranging from distributed systems and artificial intelligence, to software development and systems architecture. Accomplishments include the development of Sun Cloud, Salesforce.com’s AppExchange, the java.com developer community, and a contributor to the design of the Connection Machine supercomputer.
Lew’s interest in distributed systems stem from his tenure at Thinking Machines, an early leader in supercomputing technology, where large scale problems could only be addressed by using thousands of individual processors. Today, as the internet evolves, companies are following a similar trajectory and building out large scale cloud computing platforms. Transformation of systems into scalable platforms remains a long-term interest.
Lew holds a PhD and Masters in Computer Science with a specialization in artificial intelligence from the Polytechnic Institute of New York University as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Cornell University.
