Dave Maltz

Distinguished Engineer, Azure Networking
Dr. David A. Maltz leads Azure’s Physical Network team, which is responsible for developing, and operating the software and network devices that connect the servers of Microsoft’s largest service, including the Azure Public Cloud and Bing. We write the code for the software defined network v-switches on the servers and the SONiC firmware that runs many of our physical switches. We build the distributed systems that continuously monitor the network and ensure it remains healthy by automatically remediating problems. We design the cloud-scale networks and data centers that provide terabits of connectivity at low cost and high reliability.
My past projects include a broad array of hardware and software that strive to improve the usability, performance and cost of cloud computing. Prior to joining Azure, I worked on the Microsoft Autopilot team, which won Microsoft’s 2013 Technology Achievement Award for advances in cloud-scale data centers (http://www.microsfot.com/about/technicalrecognition/Autopilot.aspx) . Prior t joining Autopilot, I worked in industry research and academia, including 5 years in Microsoft Research. I founded two startup companies in network traffic management and wireless networking. I was part of the 4D team that won the SIGCOMM 2015 Test of Time Award for the 2005 paper that spurred the field of Software Defined Networking, and I was part of the GroupLens team that won the 2010 ACM System Software Award.
