Sergei led the Internet Operations Systems Infrastructure team at AOL, designing large-scale monitoring and configuration management systems. Sergei's accomplishments include developing the Simple Time-series Database (STDB), a high performance data storage engine for operational monitoring metrics. STDB uses commodity hardware to linearly scale to hundreds of thousands of writes per second. It has become the standard storage engine for network and host monitoring data for all of AOL, replacing traditional high-end database infrastructure.
Sergei earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from University of Maryland, College Park.
