Wolfe, Brendan <Brendan.Wolfe@...>
I would like to nominate Garrett Mueller, a senior technologist, with over 15 years of experience working for the likes of Dell, Intel and currently NetApp. Garrett established his credibility and technical leadership experience in both Linux and Windows — from enterprise software and storage expertise to high performance network protocols in the kernel.
Garrett, as a Technical Director at NetApp, currently leads NetApp’s container and cloud-native technology strategy . His role plays out in three key ways for the organization:
NetApp is excited about the promise of the CNCF and its mission to promote a micro-services oriented future, where applications can clearly define the infrastructure to meet their needs over the entire lifecycle. We believe that storage is one of the most nascent components of this budding ecosystem, where our expertise can help reduce the friction of managing and protecting data. Our selection of Garrett Mueller is putting our best foot forward in our attempt to be good citizens in this emerging community.
Thank you for your consideration.
