I served as the IBM Subject Matter Expert (SME) for Cinder from early January 2014 until January of 2017. As the Cinder SME I earned Cinder Core status during the first half of 2014. I also took the opportunity to be Cinder's Oslo Liaison. Two roles which I continue to fill today.
In January of 2017, I took the opportunity to act of the Cloud Storage Lead for Lenovo's Cloud Technology Center. In this new role I am working to develop Lenovo's storage offerings and how they can best integrate with OpenStack. Through this new role I am working to increase Lenovo's presence in the OpenStack community and looking to continue to enhance enterprise adoption of OpenStack as a cloud solution.
