Sr. Director, Data Center Operations, East US and EMEA
Paul Bonaro oversees Yahoo’s Data Center Operations teams throughout the Eastern US and Europe. He has been with Yahoo since 2010 when construction began on their data center in Lockport, NY. He is responsible for the development and deployment of the operations and maintenance strategy for Yahoo’s first data center to utilize 100% free cooling in all conditions. The operations in Lockport have since expanded to include a second facility which entered production in early 2015. The buildings utilize Yahoo’s patented “computing coop” architecture and are some of the most energy-efficient in the industry. Paul has 15 years of experience leading operations in enterprise-level data centers. Previously he has held similar positions for EMCOR Facilities Services at Credit Suisse and Amazon.com.
