Larry Lancaster


Larry is well-known in the storage array industry as a visionary of the IoT approach to enterprise storage. Before founding Zebrium, he was the Chief Data Scientist at Nimble Storage, founding the company's data science team and architecting/implementing their peta-scale platform for automation and analytics. The InfoSight suite of automated services are widely regarded as the industry's gold standard for PLM, support, and service delivery; the team and Larry painted the originals using a broad palette of big data, analytical modeling, simulation, forecasting, visualization, and relational tools.

Larry has been blessed to be surrounded by smarter people. They've inspired him to receive a number of patents and publish a number of peer-reviewed and trade-secret articles in neuroscience, reliability analysis, and industrial applications of queueing theory. He's also been fortunate enough to found NetApp's Engineering Informatics and Support Automation group as Senior Engineer, invent Glassbeam's ETL-focused SPL technology as CTO/co-founder, and receive a leadership award from the International Congress on Neural Networks as graduate student.
