Bio

Rob's been involved in the OpenStack community dating to its origin in 2010. He founded NetApp’s OpenStack effort and presently serves as a member of the foundation's Board of Directors. He's contributed to the community and overall adoption of OpenStack in capacities ranging from having co-founded the Manila project, architected the earliest OpenStack on NetApp deployments, frequently speaking at design summits, conferences and user groups (over 5 continents), and he still dabbles as an occasional ATC.   His tenure at NetApp has spanned from co-founder of NetApp’s field cloud architecture team, to currently leading product management & strategy for OpenStack and related technologies.


Prior to NetApp, Rob was at Apple from 1998-2006.  He served in a variety of roles including as Technical Attaché to the CEO and the Board of Directors reporting directly to Steve Jobs. He’s a former U.S. Marine, and resides in Austin, Texas with his wife & two daughters.
