OpenStack Summit Presentations

Speaker Profile:


Shane is a candidate in the January 2022 Board Elections .


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


I am a member of OpenInfra for years, and have served as Individual Board Member of OpenInfra Foundation for 7 years. OpenInfra success is my success. My biggest contribution includes leading teams on engineering of open source projects in OpenInfra, advocating OpenInfra in the community especially in the China community with conference or meetup organization, technical presentation, consultancy  support, and so on.


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?


I have been Individual Board Member of OpenInfra for 7 years. Additionally, I have been serving other non profit organizations with different roles for years, such as, chair of alliance committee of SODA Foundation in LF, TSC member of Mulan Community, and executive member of open source development committee in China Compute Federation (CCF), etc.


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


As Individual Board Member, I represent many small and medium OpenStack vendors or OpenInfra company members, even individual members in the OpenInfra community. OpenInfra's success requires community growth and more participations, more attractive and promising projects, more innovations and the atmosphere of 4 "Open"s to build and encourage the above factors.


What do you think the top priority of the Board should be in 2022?


In 2022, we're facing more challenges of COVID-19, facing collaboration and competition of different foundations. The top priority I think is to follow the trend of the cloud industry (serverless, confidential computing, edge, multi-cloud, heterogeneous computing, leverage resources and approaches to serve our members, embrace more projects and transform from cloud infrastructure into more attractive domains.
