RICH BRUEKNER

CO-HOST EMERITUS

Dan Olds and Rich Brueckner conceived of RadioFreeHPC podcast and
convinced Henry Newman to join, with the first show starting in 2012.
Rich left the show in early 2019 but continued to highlight it in InsideHPC.com and appear as an occasional guest until his passing.

President of InsideHPC and named as one of the Top 20 Big Data Influencers by Forbes Magazine, Rich was an avid writer, publisher, and technology pundit focused on high performance computing. He acquired InsideHPC.com in 2010, expanding his online publications to include InsideBigData, InsideCloud, and InsideStartups. With over 25 years of HPC experience at Cray Research, SGI, and Sun Microsystems, Rich was known to many in the industry as “the guy in the Red Hat.”

The HPC community lost one of its greatest champions on May 20th, 2020. However, we at RadioFree (and we’re certain quite beyond) will never forget his wit, kindness, and laughter. Those who knew you will never forget you – you left us wanting more.
