Mirantis From (Current)
Statement of Interest

I am interested in OpenStack becoming the number one Open Source Cloud OS


Alex Freedland is the co-founder and Chairman of Mirantis, the largest independent company focusing on delivering pure-play OpenStack to the customers worldwide.

Under Alex's leadership, Mirantis has become the top-3 contributor to OpenStack and is the only private company amongst Top-10 contributors.

Mirantis is also laser-focused on making customers (large and small) adopt OpenStack at scale. With that in mind, we have also pioneered such projects as Fuel (the point and click installer), Rally (a popular framework for scalability testing of OpenStack), Sahara (the orchstrator for Hadoop distributions running on top of OpenStack),  Murano (an intuitive way to automate workload orchestration on top of OpenStack and the project behind the Foundation Application Catalog) and Stackalytics.  

Prior to starting Mirantis, Alex have co-founded several other businesses, some of which are operating today and some have successfully exited. 

Alex was born in Moscow, Russia, and currently resides in the SF Bay Area.
