Egle Sigler is a principal architect on Rackspace's OpenStack Private Cloud team and an OpenStack Foundation board member. As part of the board, Egle is co-chair of the Interop Working Group (formerly known as DefCore committee). Egle has co-authored two books, DevOps for VMware Administrators and OpenStack Cloud Computing Cookbook.

Egle wants OpenStack to be regarded as one of the most successful open source projects, with a great community to back it. During the past year, Egle has been co-chair of Interop WG (DefCore committee), where she has seen that the impact interop has on OpenStack is crucial. Interoperability is one of the top OpenStack priorities, and she  continues leading the efforts to increase it.

Q

What is your relationship to OpenStack, and why is its success important to you? What would you say is your biggest contribution to OpenStack's success to date?

A

Currently I am serving on OpenStack board. I also co-chair Interop Working Group which oversees OpenStack Interoperability guidelines. I want OpenStack to be regarded as one of the most successful open source projects, with a great community to back it.  Ever since learning OpenStack in 2012 my goal has been to promote OpenStack and mentor others in how to use it. Since then, I have lead multiple workshops and conference talks making OpenStack more accessible to new users as well as co-authored OpenStack books.

 

I try to make other open source software work well with/on OpenStack, since OpenStack will require a strong ecosystem in order to be successful.

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

Currently I am serving on OpenStack board. I also co-chair Interop Working Group which oversees OpenStack Interoperability guidelines. I have served as a governing board member for POWER (Professional Organization of Women Empowered at Rackspace), Rackspace's internal employee resource group dedicated to empowering women in technology. Being on the POWER governing board has allowed me to promote diversity at technical events and taught me about being a board member. I have also served on Rackspace’s TCT (Technical Career Track) board, including serving as TCT Board Chair.

Q

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

A

OpenStack's board's success should be reflected by how well its business strategy reflects user and community needs.

Q

What do you think the top priority of the Board should be over the next year?

A

Defining the path forward for OpenStack and Simplifying OpenStack. Right now, too many projects, too many options for the users, not enough clarity of where OpenStack is going.
