I'm here to help OpenStack grow and become the dominant platform for cloud computing.
Rick Ashford has been working for SUSE as a Systems Engineer since 2008. While he spends most of his time evangelizing SUSE Linux, he is most passionate about OpenStack and Ceph. He has worked extensively with large enterprise customers who are struggling to learn how to integrate these new technologies into their datacenters. Rick lives in Austin, TX with his wife and four children and enjoys spending what little free time he has building things (electronics, carpentry, whatever) and playing his guitars.
