Block Storage

About this project

Cinder is a Block Storage service for OpenStack. It virtualizes the management of block storage devices and provides end users with a self service API to request and consume those resources without requiring any knowledge of where their storage is actually deployed or on what type of device. This is done through the use of either a reference implementation (LVM) or plugin drivers for other storage.

OpenStack Profile Twitter Profile

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.
