Product Manager at Canonical
Tytus has been a board member of the OpenInfra Foundation since 2020. He is a member of the Finance Committee and is actively involved in the OpenStack community. Over the years, he contributed numerous patches to the OpenStack codebase. He was also participating in the events organised by the OpenInfra Foundation, including summits and PTGs, supporting the foundation in its efforts to spread awareness of open infra benefits. As a Product Manager at Canonical, Tytus drives the evolution of Canonical’s products and services in the data centre space, including Canonical's Charmed OpenStack distribution. Tytus received his PhD with honours in telecommunications in 2018. His background is data centre administration and cloud engineering.
I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: DNS service (Designate),Deploys OpenStack in containers using Charms and Juju (Openstack-charms),Openstack-charms,Designate
Like everyone at Canonical, I believe in the power of open source to change the world. I think that OpenInfra and OpenStack answer the need for a carrier-grade low-cost cloud infrastructure available to everyone: from individuals to big enterprises.
As an OpenStack Product Manager at Canonical, I have been promoting and advocating the benefits of OpenInfra and OpenStack for years. I have also been involved in the community, supporting the OIF Board of Directors, the OIF Finance Committee and individual projects, also through contributions. The success of the OpenInfra is my success.
I was a member of the Open Source MANO (OSM) community from 2019 to 2020, helping to drive the evolution of the first vendor-neutral management and orchestration (MANO) project for telecommunications service providers.
The Board should analyse market trends, debate, definite the strategy, and shape the evolution of the foundation to answer new challenges. It should also make decisions regarding the new projects to incubate and new approve members, making sure their culture complies with the OpenInfra standards.
I think the biggest challenge over the next year is going to be a slowdown of the global economy and, as a result, a slowdown of digital transformation. The Board should focus on its efforts to promote OpenInfra in the form of a well-structured and organised campaign.
