Tim is responsible for the group at CERN, the European Laboratory for particle physics, which manages the compute infrastructure for 13,000 physicists around the world to support fundamental research. He previously worked as a Unix kernel developer at IBM along with managing large scale Unix production deployments and services for Deutsche Bank in Europe.
His team is running the CERN OpenStack cloud which has been in production since July 2013 and is currently around 280,000 cores.

I've been involved in OpenStack since the earliest days with a focus on ops and building the infrastructure that powers cloud and storage.
On the board, I've lead the DefCore initative and founded the Product Working Group. I also work to help screen and coach new Gold Members. I am a strong advocate for operators and interoperability.
I believe that the OpenStack community is service by having a clearly defined core. I feel that we need to do a better job defining and building an ecosystem around the project.
I maintain an open balanced perspective and respect other people's points of view.
