Mason Katz


Mason Katz is the Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of StackIQ and the open source project, Stacki. Prior to joining StackIQ, he co-founded the open-source Rocks Clusters Group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) located on the campus of the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). He has 20 years of experience in distributed and networked systems. His first job was as an 8-bit embedded software engineer, where he integrated first generation GPS units into a national grid of weather sensors. It was here that he discovered his passion for creating highly automated, maintainable, and supportable systems. He then took his embedded experience into the OS kernel arena and spent several years developing research-oriented network protocol stacks (x-kernel and IPSec) for Linux. For the last half of his career his primary focus has been on the design of software to manage commodity Linux clusters. As a co-founder of the Rocks Cluster Group, he helped position Rocks as the de facto standard in Linux cluster management.
