developing nova drivers for HP storage systems




Walt is a software engineer at  SUSE currently working in the Cloud division focusing on SUSE Cloud Systems.    Since 2012, he has been working on OpenStack for HP, IBM and SUSE.  He became a core member of the OpenStack Cinder team in 2013 after co-authoring the Fibre Channel protocol support in OpenStack’s Nova and Cinder projects.    He codeveloped the 3PAR iSCSI and FibreChannel drivers for OpenStack Cinder as well as helped develop the Cinder Fibre Channel Zone Manager. Also created the os-brick shared library that's used by Cinder and Nova to manage discovery and removal of volumes from a host as part of the attach and detach process for OpenStack.
