To help change the world.
Devananda started the OpenStack Ironic project two years ago and continues to serve as the Program Technical Lead for bare metal provisioning within OpenStack. He also sits on the Technical Committee, taking a great interest in the sustainability of the OpenStack ecosystem as it continues to experience rapid growth and expansion. He has worked on three Nova virt drivers (openvz, baremetal, and ironic), and led the early work (way back in the Essex and Folsom cycles) to improve Nova's database performance. He also works with the Infra and TripleO teams at HP.
Previously, he deployed and operated MySQL at scale, spoke about replication and disaster recovery, and was a Sr. Performance Consultant at Percona, Inc. His interest in distributed, highly-available systems goes back to his first job at a startup in Santa Monica in '99.
