Making OpenStack the most used platform among enterprises, service providers and outsourcers. Aiming in fortify the core services.
It's hard to define myself, I would say that I'm a consultant. I came from the field and from the early stages of Linux, even if I contributed to many opensource projects.
HP rates me among the global top 30 OpenStack consultant and even mentioned in Forrester Research OpenStack whitepaper “OpenStack is ready, are you?". I’ve been working in the past as an IT Architect and Security Expert for Canonical/Ubuntu, RedHat, Sun Microsystems and IBM and named Visiting Researcher at the University of Dublin Trinity College ad-honorem.
As I’ve spent my last 22+ years in OpenSource, I had the privilege of working with the best people in the industry. This is the reason why I’ve got great relationships with HP, RedHat, SUSE, Ubuntu, Dell, Intel, Fortinet and many many others. I wrote many whitepapers and books and my latest one “OpenStack explained” helped collecting funds to help the population in Nepal after the earthquake.
I’ve been working in super-exciting field projects: creating the standard for J2ME Over-The-Air (OTA) provisioning along with Vodafone, the study of architecture and standards for the delivery of MHP applications for the digital terrestrial television (DTT) on behalf of DTT Lab and implementation of HLR for Vodafone landline services. Not mentioning the most cited OpenStack installations in telco and finance.
My aim is to bring in connection the board of director with the real world of enterprises, service providers, outsourcers and system integrators.
On my private I’m still a geek enjoying testing and being part of the OpenSource world. I’d like to transmit data in any mean, that’s why I’m a radioamateur. I’m also a chef with passion of baking and a leisure pilot on the weekends :-)
I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Nova,Swift,Glance,Keystone,Quantum
I'm working with OpenStack since the Diablo release back in 2007. I initially made some patches and now I'm architecting big infrastructures on behalf of big names. I was involved in most of the biggest success stories in Europe.
I am currently help coordinating the OpenStack Meetups in Switzerland, Italy and UK. I am involved in some Linux upstream projects as I worked for both RedHat and Canonical/Ubuntu. I was part of the linux.it community since 1994.
Driving the project in the way the users and market is going.
Focus on long term supportablility, i.e. help introducing the LTS releases, bridging the gap between the developers and the community of users and companies, and carefully help selecting the projects that should follow under the big tent.
