My name is Jonathan Ziegler, and I have worked at Gravic for 12 years. I currently manage the Shadowbase software development group, spanning NonStop, Linux, Windows, and a variety of other technologies. Before I jump into our new Early Code Drop (ECD) program for HPE Shadowbase synchronous replication, I was asked to share a bit about my background.
Every company has an origin story, and company names aren’t always created from the obvious. Steve Jobs branded his company Apple Computer after he returned home from working in an apple orchard. Jeff Bezos wanted his tiny business to become as big as the Amazon River, the largest in the world. Google was supposed to be named Googol, a math term for ten to the one-hundredth power. But when the name was misspelled as Google during a domain name search, the decision was made to register the mistake.
Three years ago, Navid Khodayari, President of Idelji Corp., and Kristi Elizondo, CEO of Connect Worldwide, started an ongoing conversation. Throughout their travels, to various TUGs around the world, they continued to craft ways that promote and invest in the next generation of NonStop practitioners. In 2016 an informal breakout session was held at NonStop Technical Boot Camp in San Jose. Navid remembers that he had no agenda for the meeting other than to get people together and see what everyone wanted to talk about, “everyone started talking and, just like that, NSU40 was born.” He became the first president, and establishing the first Board of Directors came next, including representation from customers, partners, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Education and marketing were high on the list, and the door opened for an online message board for member engagement.
