Update

Ben Rockwood is a UNIX Systems Administrator. He entered the industry in 1994 and is known as a Sun Solaris expert and advocate. After years of working at a variety of enterprises mostly managing midrange systems infrastructure and storage, he gave into the X86 push of 2006 and joined Joyent to help build one of the first IaaS Clouds using OpenSolaris.

Around 2009, Ben Rockwood’s interest shifted from technology itself to operations management. He got interested in IT Service Management and ITIL, discovered and started studying Operations Management and Operations Research, and he learned as much as he could about lean. Around this time the term DevOps was coined and he quickly found many other like-minded individuals and he has been part of the movement ever since.

Ben Rockwood is a California native and lived in the Silicon Valley for many years and currently resides just outside the area. He got married to Tamarah in 1999 and they have 5 children.
