Joe founded SwiftStack to solve large-scale data managment for data-intensive workflows.
Joe managed the first public OpenStack launch of Swift independent of Rackspace deploying multiple large-scale cloud storage systems. He went on to co-found SwiftStack and serves as CPO. SwiftStack powers enterprises with a multi-cloud, software defined storage platform.
SwiftStack contributes to and has built many open-source components as part of its commercial product to provide private cloud storage, a native filesystem and multi-cloud data management.
Joe is the author of OpenStack Swift, published by O'Reilly and has made dozens of presentations at OpenStack Summits from its beginnings in 2010.
