Provide and Build New Public Cloud Services Based on OpenStack
Over the past 10 years, I’m happy to have watched the hosting industry transform and be part of the transformation process as it evolved from traditional physical hardware to cloud-native infrastructure, powered by OpenStack. Since the creation of VEXXHOST, I have had the chance to work with different sorts of customers, ranging from growing small businesses to helping architect solutions for large Fortune 500 companies, based on OpenStack. I've helped integrate other open infrastructure projects into our commercial offering.
By fostering OpenStack at it’s early days in 2011, it has helped improve the project and our service as a whole. I’ve been a contributor to the project since and I have contributed code to almost every release of OpenStack since then. I've also served as PTL for Puppet OpenStack, continue to serve as a PTL for OpenStack-Ansible and serve on the technical commitee, chairing tthe commitee for a term.
I'm involved in the following OpenStack projects: Compute Service (Nova),Networking (Neutron),Block Storage (Cinder),Image Service (Glance),Puppet Modules for OpenStack (Puppet OpenStack)
Our entire business is built on OpenStack, the success of the foundation which helps the marketing and growth of this service is instrumental to make it continue to function.
I've served as an individual member for a few years prior and I have been part of the OpenStack community for many years, with involvement in many different OpenInfra projects.
We need to more actively recruit new open source project or seek ways to combine forces with other foundations to be able to drive more traffic to our projects and our events.
We need to fix our tooling and stop making it so hard for contributors. We've got a slew of people who have their own ideals of how things should be that are overly influencing the community and it indirectly leave people out of it.
