Take OpenStack to the next level of adoption, by bringing OpenStack to the masses - Enable OpenStack enablement with real-world implementors, builders, and users
I've been a part of the OpenStack movement since the very beginning - back in 2010, starting at the Omni Hotel event in Austin, Texas. And I've been honored to have served on the OpenStack Board of Directors in 2013.
Over the years, I have been a part of excellent teams driving OpenStack at great companies like
- Dell, where I served as the Director of Product Management / Marketing, and we launched the market's first OpenStack solution in 2011
- HP / HP Enterprise, where I served as the Exec Director of Big Data and Storage Solutions, including dense storage servers great for Swift and Ceph
- SUSE, where I served as the VP of Solutions, driving both OpenStack and Ceph-based solutions.
If you get to know me, you'll find that I am extremely passionate about bringing OpenStack to the masses (check out my blog on the topic - https://www.suse.com/communities/blog/renewing-focus-bringing-openstack-masses/). I've worked hard for over 20 years to bring emerging tech solutions to end users in order to help them solve challenges in their IT and application teams, and have been fortunate to work to that end as an engineer, as a strategist, and as an executive.
I love talking tech, where tech is headed, and how we get it into as many people's hands as possible, so let's be sure to connect on Twitter (@jbgeorge).
