What is your relationship to OpenStack Foundation (OSF)?

We have been in OSF member for over 6 years and now we are in the gold member list. Personally I had been in OpenStack community since 2010 when OSF first time come to China. 

why is its success important to you?

99Cloud is born because of OpenStack, we believe OSF win, then OpenInfra win, and then we win.

What would you say is your biggest contribution to the OSF and the success of its projects to date?

We have been in OSF member for over 6 years, we supported a lot of event like China Day, China Summit, Hackthon and local meetups to support OSF. We are also the NO.1 COA traninng provider in China.

We are the top 2 code committer from China in 2019. From 2017~2016, we are always in the top3 list in code contribution from China.

One key area we are leading is using StarlingX tech for emerging edge computing. We are orgnizing lcoal hands-on meetups/hackthon to promote StarlingX. We are now supporting China Unicom in 1000 edge site implementation based on OpenStack/StarlingX and other orchestration techs.

Q

Describe your experience with other non-profits or serving as a board member. How does your experience prepare you for the role of a board member?

A

I was a member in China opensource cloud leagure (COSCL)http://www.coscl.org.cn/ as an evangelist to promote OpenStack, StarlingX , Ceph and OpenFlow techs implementation in China. 

With my companies deeply invovled in OSF and my networking in China OpenSource community , I think I can better help OSF in the China local strategy steering to a better direction.

Another advantage is my communication in English as a China candiates. I am confidence in my English skill which can help me better to fill the gap in China/Global message translation. I have 6 years experience in Intel , which is an international company with a lot of invovlement to a global  communication .

Q

What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?

A

As a board in OSF, I think he/she is not only present its company, he/she should be in a higher perspective to provide advice from a reginal or vertical role. 

He/she should have the insightfule understanding in current challenges from OSF and be aware of those potential obstacles which block OSF to be success

A

Edge computing , Edge computing  and Edge computing
