User, developer, packager and operator of OpenStack
David is a Senior Software Engineer in the RDO team at Red Hat.
His efforts are focused around the tooling and infrastructure required to develop, build, package, test and distribute RDO: a community OpenStack distribution for Red Hat based operating systems.
Previously, he was at iWeb and Internap, a server and datacenter infrastructure provider where he held various technical and leadership roles in the span of almost 10 years. In the last years, his focus was around deploying and supporting a highly available multi-region OpenStack public cloud in different datacenters around the world.
Other than OpenStack, Infrastructure and Operations, David is also particularly a fan of Ceph and Ansible.
He holds a blog on https://dmsimard.com where he shares articles about his interests.
