Statement of Interest

Deploy a variety of OpenStack configurations to observe how our product behaves in those configurations (DevStack [all-in-one], Ansible [HA], Packstack [all-in-one, seperate nodes], Triple-O [HA], etc.)


I have been doing data networking, L2-7 protocol analysis, and network management since the early 1990's, and have worked for Wandel & Goltermann (now a division of JDSU), Agilent's Advanced Network Division (now part of Ixia), and ClearSight Networks (acquired by NetScout with Tektronix) as a Sales Engineer, Market Segment Manager, Trainer, and European Channel Manager.  In mid-2007 I joined Network General as a Professional Service's Consultant.  When NetScout purchased Network General in late-2007, he served as a Sales Engineer and Professional Service's Consultant, becoming a NetScout Dashboard and Alerting Subject Matter Expert (SME).  I also developed a series of documents on deployment and configuration best practices.  I am now a Senior Solutions Architect working for the office of NETSCOUT's Chief Technology Officer (CTO) developing best practice documents, managing their lab, providing ad hoc training to and facilitating best practice adaptation by top wireless service provider customers.
