Dr. Steven W. Hunter

Adjunct Professor

| Biography

I started my career in the IBM Networking Division in 1984 where I've worked on multiple networking products, as well as network system architecture and technologies in general. In 1997, I joined the IBM Systems and Technology Group (STG) where I was systems architect for systems x and BladeCenter products, and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of the BladeCenter system family.

I'm an IBM Fellow and Chief Architect for Next Generation Computing Systems in IBM Research and an Adjunct Professor in the NCSU ECE and Computer Science departments focusing primarily on computer and networking architecture and technology.

My areas of interest include parallel and distributed system architectures and technologies associated with computing, networking, clustering, high availability, and power-efficiency.
