Henry Newman

Chief Technology Officer, Retired Guru

After earning a BA in International/Global Studies at American University in Washington, DC, Henry took the next logical step and joined Cray Research as a Senior Programmer Analyst and became a Benchmark Maven. After 11 years at Cray, he helped start HPC consultancy Instrumental, Inc., where he spent 22 years advising customers on technology solutions, specializing in architecture, performance, storage, and security analysis.

In our opinion, there is no one better when it comes to understanding systems, their strengths and weaknesses, and how to make them perform to their maximum potential.

Before retiring, Henry was a co-host on the highly popular Radio Free HPC webcast, where he proved weekly that he was never cut out for a career in diplomacy.
