Bio

John Griffith, Principal Software Engineer at SolidFire, helped to create the Cinder project in OpenStack.  His primary responsibility at SolidFire is technical contributor to OpenStack and Open Source technologies.  He served as Technical Lead for the Block Storage Project since it's beginning through the Juno release, and also has held an elected seat on the OpenStack Technical Committee on and off over the past four years.

John has over fifteen years of engineering experience in both hardware and software engineering.  He’s been an active user and contributor to open source for close to a decade, and has been focused on OpenStack since January of 2011.

In addition to his technical contributions, John also spends a lot of his time talking to people who are interested in learning about OpenStack as well as gathering feedback from current users.
