Chris Churchey is an ex-IBM executive with 35 years of IT experience in enterprise open systems and storage technologies. He has an emphasis on operating systems, virtualization, large-scale systems/storage architecture, design and integration, and performance optimization of computer resources.
Chris holds numerous IBM certifications and is a subject matter expert in server/storage consolidation, performance, AIX, Linux, power, virtualization, and IBM storage technologies. In his current role, he oversees business development and the management and support of large ATS customers as well as managing the requirements, strategy, and business development of Galileo Performance Explorer, a cloud-based charting tool that provides customizable, on-demand views of infrastructure performance.
Along with Tim Conley, Chris created Galileo Performance Explorer to help support of clients who wanted ad hoc access to the performance metrics of their IBM server and storage environments. The tool proved so easy to use that they made available to clients as a cloud service to assess their entire IT environment in the form of an integrated suite. The integrated suite empowers everyone from systems administrators to CIOs at Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, including leaders in security-sensitive industries such as financial services and healthcare. In 2016, CIO Solutions named it one of the 25 IBM Solutions Transforming Business.
