Speaker Profile:


Shane is a candidate in the January 2021 Board Elections .


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


I have been working on OpenStack since 2012, and have worked on StarlingX for a year. Open Infrastructure Foundation is the home of those cloud infrastructure projects. Cloud computing is my life and Open Infrastructure projects are de facto standards for cloud computing, so its success is very important to me. My biggest contribution to Open Infrastructure Foundation is I have been serving as an individual board member for 6 years and helping to grow the community and the ecosystem.


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 serving as a board member since 2015, and at this moment I'm also an outreach vice-chair of SODA Foundation. I believe I am qualifed to continue my service in Open Infrastructure Foundation.


What do you see as the Board's role in Open Infrastructure Foundation's success?


Open Infrastruction Foundation is transitioning from OpenStack Foundation, targeting more cloud infrastructure projects and encouraging more cross-community collaborations for cloud computing. I think in new year 2021, its transition success is the success of Open Infrastructure Foundation, satisfying more requirements of various use scenarios (such as AI/ML, 5G and edge) and incubating more cloud infrastructure projects.


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


I think the top priority of the Board should be to differentiate OIF by strengthening and maturing graduated projects, seeking new opportunites, assisting and embracing incubated projects during the challenging period of COVID-19, plan and get prepared for next 10 years of cloud computing evolution to meet the big potential market size.
