I am member of the Cloud Operations and Infrastructure teams for one of the lead SaaS provider in Finance and human resources management, Workday. My current role as OpenStack user is giving me a different opinion about what OpenStack should integrate and how it can be consumed easier and more scalable for both Service Provider and Entreprise sectors. I have provided my experience in the OpenStack Board in order to drive its direction based on the interest of the Operators and Users.
I have a PhD on Distributed Systems and I have specialized on Cloud Computing, Network Virtualization, Software-defined Networking (SDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), OpenFlow and the most important OpenStack. During my last three positions at Cisco, PLUMgrid and Workday I have completed successful OpenStack deployments in heterogeneous and scalable infrastructures, from vendor specific hardware to commodity one. All improvements have been shared and I have created extended experience on configuration languages such as Puppet and Chef.
