Hyper-V/OpenStack Integration


I am currently responsible for the OpenStack integration with Microsoft's Virtualization platform Hyper-V.

My tenure at Microsoft began in March 2012 with a task of organizing community members to restore and maintain Hyper-V intgration within OpenStack.  Our team was successful in restoring the Hyper-V functionality to OpenStack in time for the Folsom.

I currently act as the OpenStack subject matter expert within Microsoft as well as the evangelist for OpenStack awareness and adoption of OpenStack Windows platforms.

Prior to Microsoft I worked for Novell in the Joint Interoperabilty Lab with Microsoft.  There our team focused on testing and validating Linux workloads on Hyper-V and Windows workloads on Xen and KVM.  In April 2011 I successfully deployed the first OpenStack Cloud using Hyper-V and began my evangelism for Hyper-V within the OpenStack community.

Additional experiance includes linux high avialability, network and datacenter infrastructure and security.





I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova,Openstack-manuals,Openstack-ci
