BiographyLaurent Montaron has about 15 years of experience in the IT industry. He joined Sequent Computer Systems in 1993 as a software engineer, then moved to Sequent US-based headquarters in 1997 prior to the IBM-Sequent merger in 1999. Sequent was the leader in SMP (and later ccNUMA) Unix-based systems and specialized in large-scale, mission-critical relational database deployments.
