I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Glance,Quantum,Cinder,Ironic,QA,Deployment
I have been leading team working on openstack team for 2 years and my future is tied to OpenSTack one. My goal is to drive openstack adoption and make it easier for Operators and Users to integrate into their data centers. To that end I had participated in many projects having biggest impact on product WG, cinder, and tempest. My team drove Tempest toward validation suite for the field and ensuring that it can be run multiple times, cleans after itself, and ready to support refstack in customer environments. My goal is to make OpenStack targeted for multiple IaaS environments, from Enterprise, to NFV, to PaaS and other workloads.
I run Dat Collaboartive and then successfully transitioned it into OFA( https://www.openfabrics.org/) where I have been on the board of directors and organized from scratch. I have on IBTA board and was a co-chair of MPI/RT. In all of these I was driving ease of use, simplcity of adoptions and interoperability.
Board main role is create an environment for consisty for both developers and users. As OpenStack becomes widely adapted the emphasis is shifting to maturity of code base, ease of maintenance and operating of openstack, security, and adaptability for different use cases.
Balance between new projects and features and stavlity and dependability for existing users.
