Thomas Dunbar: Storage/Database Coordination @ Intermountain Healthcare
Having retired early from Virginia Tech's Oracle DBA group, which uses Nagios as their primary monitoring framework, I was recruited to help Intermountain Healthcare's Storage team better support the DBA groups at IHC.

Given an open-source background (I'm in the Linux Credits file for early supporting work there related to TeX), I naturally looked to Nagios Core as a framework for building our specific storage monitoring resources.
