I am Neelakanth Nadgir and I am a part of PA2E (Performance Architecture, and Availability Organization) group. I work out of Menlo Park, CA. My professional interests include scalability, networking, filesystems, distributed systems etc.
Before joining PA2E, I worked at Sun's Market Development Engineering, where I spent 4 years working on Performance tuning, Porting, Sizing, and ISV account management.
am was also involved with several open source projects. I am an active member of the JXTA community and jointly started two projects viz
Ezel Project and
JNGI Project. I have
also served as web-master to the
for 2 years. I also contributed to the
Mozilla project in the past by providing sparc binaries and misc performance fixes.
Before working at Sun, I graduated with a masters in Computer Sc from Texas Tech University at Lubbock, TX (GO Raiders!). My thesis was on the Reliability of distributed systems, where I devised a faster algorithm for calculating minimal file spanning trees. I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Sc from Karnatak University, India.
My other interests include Cricket, and tropical aquarium fish ( African cichlids in particular) My favorite fish is known as Pseudotropheus demasoni. My wife got me hooked on to the aquarium hobby after we got married, and even before I knew, we had more than 60 fishes in 6 tanks :-)
I plan to use this blog to share the knowledge that I gained from working with lots of cool people here at Sun. Keep tuned for more insights!
