As field CTO, Brad King is responsible for the design of the largest systems Scality deploys around the world. These include multi-petabyte, multi-site systems with hundreds of servers. Brad is one of the co-founders of Scality. He began his multifaceted career as a naval architect with the French navy, performing numerical simulations of ship capsize and waves around large ships. He then joined a Schlumberger research lab in Paris for several years, where he worked on turbulent fluid dynamics, laboratory automation, large-scale parallel numerical simulations, and new internet technologies, including monitoring of NCSA projects (such as Mosaic) funded by Schlumberger.
