Offering Manager, IBM Private Cloud and OpenStack Initiatives

I am an Offering Manager for OpenStack Initiatives at IBM Cloud and enthusiastic about technology.  In my current role, I am focused on open-source and product strategy.  I have been in the OpenStack community since 2013 and I am currently participating in the Product, Enterprise, Operator Tags, and AUC Recognition working groups along with Superuser.TV.   I am a core member of the openstack-user-stories (product WG) and OpenStack UX teams.  My background includes server/network operations, pre and post-sales engineering, as well as being a technologist focused on cloud and cloud-related eco-systems (Containers, CloudFoundry, Mesos, K8s, etc.)

I am passionate about OpenStack, emerging technologies, implications of technology shifts on datacenter architectures, and driving technology adoption. You can follow me on twitter: @ShamailXD
