Operator of Openstack in the datacenter.
Currently my role is Director, Cloud Engineering at Lithium Technologies (lithium.com) and have 20 years experience with designing and deploying in the datacenter.
I've been involved with Openstack since 2012 and operator since 2013. My current team has deployed Openstack to production to power our SaaS. From my perspective I can help the community understand the challenges of running it at scale and guide other users who are undertaking this journey.
I'm also an organizer of the SF CloudOps meetup in San Franciso which is focused on helping other operators use devop tools and frameworks.
