Statement of Interest

I work as an OpenStack developer for SUSE.




Adam Spiers is a Senior Software Engineer at SUSE, focusing on OpenStack, Pacemaker, Chef and Crowbar.  He was architectural lead for the projects to make SUSE OpenStack Cloud capable of deploying highly available control and compute planes, and helped SUSE win the Ruler Of The Stack competitions at the OpenStack summits in Vancouver and Paris.  He set up the #openstack-ha IRC channel and also the weekly HA community IRC meetings, which he currently chairs.

Adam has been a passionate supporter and developer of F/OSS since 1995, with a particular interest in automation and orchestration.  For the last 13 years his professional focus has been on Linux-oriented enterprise technologies in the data center. He holds a degree in Mathematics and Computation from Oxford University, and currently lives and works in London, UK.

Adam juggles his IT career with a long-running parallel career as a musician, a (less successful) pre-occupation with marathons and triathlons, and occasionally also juggles balls, clubs, and fire.



I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova,Heat,Openstack-manuals,Deployment,DevStack
