Q

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?

A

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 theĀ http://stackalytics.com/, you can see all my patches in OpenStack, most are in Nova.

Q

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?

A

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.

Q

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

A

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.

Q

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

A

To grow the ecosystem around OpenStack 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.
