General interest in OpenStack
Amit is a Senior Technical Leader in the office of the cloud CTO at Cisco Systems. He has had extensive experience in the field of computer networking, both wired and wireless. He focuses on automatic, system-wide verification and visualization of large scale distributed systems, with a special emphasis on networking. Prior to Cisco, Amit spent almost 6 years at Juniper Networks, where he was one of the earliest members building the QFabric product, a massively distributed data center switch with 6000 ports and more than a 100 constituent elements. He co-developed a Python application that can automatically validate system states, detect faults and anomalies in system comprising of 100s of elements. He also developed a Virtual Chassis Visualizer that automatically visualizes the physical connectivity of a virtual chassis system.
In the Vancouver summit (May 2015), he presented a widely attended talk, DON: Diagnosing OVS in Neutron, a completely automated service for verifying and diagnosing the networking functionality provided by OVS.
