Intel From (Current)
Statement of Interest





Shane Wang (王庆) is based in Shanghai and is an engineering manager of the Datacenter and Cloud Software (DCS) team in the Open Source Technology Center, Intel. Shane joined Intel in 2004 after he graduated from Fudan University and got his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, and since 2007 has been working on open source technologies, spanning low-level Virtualization Technology (VT) in Xen and KVM, maintaining tboot - an open source trusted boot solution, Yocto, and managing embedded solutions. Since 2011 Shane has focused on OpenStack, with his team working on Ironic, TripleO, Horizon, Keystone, Neutron, Ceilometer, Intelligent Scheduling, Rolling Upgrades in Nova, SR-IOV support, and NFV enabling.

 He has a team in both Beijing (Global Trade Center) and Shanghai (Zizhu High-Tech Park), and his team is working closely with the community in China such as IBM and Huawei to push different features, so far his team has several core developers in Ceilometer, Gantt, and oslo. In 2008, his team published a book about System Virtulization (http://item.jd.com/10079875.html) with Fudan University, and now the team is writting another book in Chinese about OpenStack code inside and development to have more local people to know OpenStack and be part of the OpenStack community.

For himself, he is also an active Nova contributor to contribute the code to the upstream, such as utilization based scheduling in Nova. He also joined China Open Source Cloud League (COSCL) which is run by Intel and composed of a few companies in China including Red Hat, SuSE, Intel itself, TeamSun, 99cloud, unitedstack etc. Shane has attended all the OpenStack summit since Grizzly in San Diego as an Active Technical Contributor (ATC), and hopes to bring the exprience at summits to China community when attending local meetups, hopes to promote OpenStack and help the grow of China OpenStack ecosystem, and hopes more Chinese people become core developers in the upstream, and local companies especially small and medium business leverage OpenStack to deploy in order to save the cost and grow their business.



I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova


Shane is a candidate in the 2015 Board Election .


What is your relationship to OpenStack, and why is its success important to you? What would you say is your biggest contribution to OpenStack's success to date?


I am an active contributor in OpenStack, and focus more on Nova. Also, I have a big team in China which is doing upstream work in the OpenStack community. Our team is under Open Source Technologoy Center in Intel. I am the engineering manager of that team. Meanwhile, our team will talk to cloud customers in China to know their pain points and experience when they deploy and use cloud with OpenStack, the purpose is we hope to improve OpenStack as a very useful and free tool to provide IaaS.

We invested a lot on OpenStack, and we all hope it can succeed and we do think it is on the way to success. Because I am a member of the engieering team in Intel doing upstream work, if the OpenStack succeeds, we could see our efforts and bring our values to those who want to deploy cloud or deploy private IT infrastructure.

My biggest contribution to the OpenStack is the upstream work, if you search my name "Shane Wang" in the http://stackalytics.com/, you can see all my patches in OpenStack, most are in Nova.


Describe your experience with other non profits or serving as a board member. How does your experience prepare you for the role of a board member?


This would be my first experience serving on a non profit board. I look forward to the opportunity to represent the OpenStack community members and OpenStack. And I hope to focus more on China because China has a large number of customers who are using OpenStack and developing OpenStack, I hope to serve them and promote OpenStack in China.


What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?


As far as I know, the board's role is providing platforms for those developers and operators to know, meet, and work together to make the OpenStack better and better, that also helps OpenStack to be a software to help other people, enterprises, and small & medium bussness, and startups.

As a board member, the other role is to expand OpenStack scope, promote OpenStack, and make more people and entities to accept and agree that is a great tool for cloud.


What do you think the top priority of the Board should be in 2014?


To grow the ecosystem around OpenStack (esp. for enterprise) is the top priority, and I hope I can help here in the China market because China has an emerging market in the cloud area. Intel has a virtual team called "Win The Enterprise" team to push OpenStack to be an enterprise ready software, I and my team joined that effort to stabilize OpenStack and make OpenStack more useful for enterprise adoption.
