TOC nomination: Joe Beda

Alex Polvi
 

Joe is a 20 year industry veteran that has started, contributed to and driven a wide range of projects.  He is currently an Entrepreneur in Residence with Accel Partners looking to start something that will be directly related to the Cloud Native mission.

Over 10 year ago Joe made the jump from working on client systems at Microsoft (Internet Explorer and Windows Presentation Foundation) to Google in order to learn how to build internet scale systems on the server.  Over his more than 10 years at Google Joe has not only seen the internal evolution of cloud native systems at Google but has helped to shape and drive those systems forward.  This includes early work to connect Google to the telephone network (including helping to standardize call signaling over XMPP -- http://xmpp.org/about-xmpp/technology-overview/jingle/) and building ad systems that leverage machine learning and large distributed serving systems.

About 5 years ago, Joe started the Google Compute Engine project inside of Google.  The vision for that product, from the start, was to be a bridge to bringing more "cloud native" tooling and architectures to a wide set of users outside of Google.  Providing a very familiar environment (VMs) was a product necessity.  These systems took full advantage of the underlying cloud native systems that Google provides internally (Borg, Colossus, Chubby, BigTable/Megastore/Spanner) and trail blazed new infrastructure systems for Google (virtualization, virtual networks, network block stores, API infrastructure and control planes).

Much of the work on Google Compute Engine was done as a way to lay the ground work for Kubernetes.  Along with Brendan Burns and Craig McLuckie (both still at Google) Joe started the Kubernetes project.  This included scoping and motivating the open source release, building the first versions and then building a community around the project.  Joe submitted the first commit for Kubernetes (https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/commit/2c4b3a562ce34cddc3f8218a2c4d11c7310e6d56) along with the first design document for the project (https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/commit/e2b948dbfbba62b8cb681189377157deee93bb43).

Since leaving Google in early 2015, Joe has stayed active in the Kubernetes community.  He has provided consulting and advisory services to multiple companies that are involved in the CNCF including CoreOS, Samsung and Mesosphere.  As part of that work, Joe (along with Bob Wise from Samsung) started and drives the scaling SIG for Kubernetes.  While not just driving scalability for Kubernetes, this also helped to prove out the SIG model that is helping the project and community grow in a responsible way.

Currently Joe is an EIR at Accel and is looking at new opportunities.  He has been looking beyond Kubernetes and other components of what makes up the modern production stack and how to develop and operate applications in this world.  You can read some in depth thoughts at his blog (https://www.eightypercent.net/post/new-container-image-format.htmlhttps://www.eightypercent.net/post/layers-in-the-stack.html) and by watching his presentation from KubeCon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqtMjx5p0pshttp://slides.eightypercent.net/ops-dividend/ops-dividend.html#p1).


TOC nomination / Darren Shepherd (Rancher Labs)

Darren Shepherd
 

I would like to nominate myself, Darren Shepherd, Chief Architect and Co-founder at Rancher Labs, to the CNCF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC).  Over the past decade I have been heavily involved in the development and deployment of cloud orchestration systems.  From the inception of Docker I have been a very active contributor to the Docker community under the GitHub handle @ibuildthecloud.  I am a member of the Docker Advisor Governance Board as one of the two slots dedicated to community members.  I've helped address over one hundred issues in the Docker engine and more across various Docker projects. I worked in conjunction with Red Hat to push along the Docker Labels PR which has greatly helps 3rd party system such as Kubernetes to work with Docker containers.  I am also the creator of libcompose which is the Docker official implementation of compose in Go.  And finally, I’m the creator of RancherOS which pushes the limits of containers in which the entire OS is ran as containers.

Over the last 6 months I've been working heavily on Kubernetes and hope to contribute more upstream soon.  At Rancher Labs we are working to integrate various storage and networking technologies into Kubernetes and are excited at the possibilities the architecture enables.

I look forward to the opportunity to serve on the TOC.  I’ve worked as an architect in the cloud space for a while extending back to my days of IaaS developing OpenStack, CloudStack, and various proprietary systems.  I feel I can contribute significantly to CNCF such that CNCF can produce core technical assets and allow pluggability to drive a healthy ecosystem.

Ken Robertson - CNCF TOC nomination

Neeraj Gupta <neeraj@...>
 

I would like to nominate Ken Robertson to serve on the CNCF TOC.  Ken is Lead Architect at Apcera (www.apcera.com) and has been leading the design and development of Apcera Platform since the company was founded three and half years ago.  Ken is passionate about and has been leading the effort around micro services, containers, orchestration, scheduler, security, multi cloud providers, diverse work loads among other things that align closely with the CNCF charter.  

Ken has been working on multiple container runtime implementations and introduced our user namespace handling in early 2014.  Ken is currently spearheading Apcera open source Kurma project, which is a small footprint compute node and container implementation.  Kurma is based on App Container Specification (AppC) as its standard.  He is a contributing maintainer of the AppC project along with CoreOS, Google and RedHat.  Kurma is one of the more mature AppC runtime implementation available publicly today.

Ken has also been leading several projects for outreach and adoption around container compatibility.  He is leading a project to add support for Kurma to Kubernetes's kubelet and is intimately familiar with Kubernetes's mission, architecture and design principles.  Ken is a frequent speaker at public events and panels, including KubeCon, ICEE3, CoreOS Fest, Mobile World Congress among others, around containers, orchestration, scheduler and security. 

Prior to Apcera, Ken was a key contributor to the early Cloud Foundry open source project and community.  He bootstrapped a small startup using Cloud Foundry V1, including leading a project to document all of Cloud Foundry internal APIs.

Pini Reznik - TOC CNCF Nomination

Pini Reznik
 

I would like to nominate myself to TOC of CNCF.


Before writing about myself, I would like to suggest few reasons for my nomination.


  1. Container Solutions is an independent consultancy without an explicit interest in a specific technology or a product. We are acting on behalf of variety of our clients and on the lookout to the best solutions to satisfy their needs.

  2. Our clients include banks, large scale web-companies, telcos and large technology companies.

  3. Container Solutions has a very strong preference for open source software.

  4. Container Solutions and I personally focus on the usability of systems as well as the development processes, which is why we founded the design agency, Remember to Play.


About me:

My name is Pini Reznik. I spent most of my career somewhere between development and operations. I started as a developer about 17 years ago, moved to software configuration management and later came to technical operations. During these years I have been in engineering, architecture and management positions.


I have spent the last few years as a consultant advising in the areas of CI, CD, DevOps and the transition strategies.


Just over a year ago, I co-founded Programmable Infrastructure Solutions, whose most famous brand is Container Solutions, where I currently work as CTO. My philosophy can be seen in my latest research about the future of cloud:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg8pKjnHGyM

http://www.slideshare.net/pini4/cloud-native-applications-and-post-devops



About Programmable Infrastructure Solutions (PS)

PS is headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland. This consortium contains Container Solutions, who have offices in London, Amsterdam and Zurich; Container Solutions, Labs, which is based in Edinburgh; Remember to Play, which is headquartered in Amsterdam; finally, the latest addition to our family is DevOps solutions, a company specialising in transition and rolling out the tools and practices of programmable infrastructure.


Container Solutions, the most famous of our companies, partners with Docker, Mesosphere, Weaveworks, RedHat and HashiCorp, and is friends with many other companies in the industry and are currently working on Cisco’s Mantl and project Shipped.

http://elasticsearch.mesosframeworks.com/

http://flocker.mesosframeworks.com/

http://minimesos.org/

https://github.com/ContainerSolutions/terraform-provider-cobbler



My Aim

I think that the best way for an adoption of any standard is it’s ease of use and it’s usefulness.

My aim as a member of CNCF TOC is to represent the developers and make sure that the transition to the new microservices stack defined by CNCF is as easy and native as it is with Docker for managing the lifecycle of a single container/image.

Throwing my hat in the ring

Christopher LILJENSTOLPE <cdl@...>
 

I would like to throw my hat into the ring for election to the CNCF
TOC.

If I had to sum up, in one phrase, my strength (and weakness) is that I
am a Jack of all trades (how many I master could be, and is, debated).

I've been an operator of large infrastructure as chief architect at iMCI /
Cable & Wireless (one of the two largest Internet backbones in the late
1990's early 2000's - responsible for everything from physical
infrastructure through to applications and hosting across 5 continents)
and at Telstra, the incumbent combined fixed-line, wireless, and cable
operator in Australia. There, I started championing distributed storage,
a unified cloud infrastructure with containers for application
delivery, and exposing telco APIs to developers from 2009-2011.

I've been a small operator, building one of the first OpenStack
Bioinformatics clusters for genomic computation at Annai Systems in the
early 2010's. I've also operated R&E infrastructure as the lead
engineer for networking and computing at the US Antarctic Program.

I've also been a vendor, with a few start-ups under my belt (Big Switch
and Woven Systems) and a few largish ones (Alcatel as the CTO for a
business unit in Asia) and Metaswitch.

Before coming to Metaswitch, I had become convinced that we (the
industry) were making networking (as well as other things in the "cloud"
world) much too complex. That led to Project Calico, which I instigated and
did much of the initial high-level design when I started at Metaswitch, very
specifically focusing on Containers and the new data-model driven world (as
well as OpenStack - but knowing that the big shift was going to come in this
new model).

I understand how the pieces fit together, and I am pretty good at
figuring out the "right" place to solve a hard problem. I firmly
believe that less is more, and if it isn't simple, it should be suspect,
while recognizing that some genuinely hard problems do ultimately require
complex solutions.

I've also done my time at cat herding, serving as a working group chair
in two IETF working groups (OPS and PGP), and co-managing the Internet
Area Directorate. In that role, I’ve seen both what great things can be
achieved in a multi-vendor group motivated to push in the same direction,
as well as the issues that occur when standards are created for their own
sake, not for solving actual, real-world problems.

I believe that I would bring a good mix of both the User/Operator and
Developer/Vendor side to the role.

Nomination for TOC - Pavel Emelianov, Virtuozzo

John Lawler <jlawler@...>
 

I would like to nominate Pavel Emelianov, the Chief Software Architect at Virtuozzo (formerly Parallels/Odin), and Virtuozzo’s point man on open source strategy.

Pavel is the project creator and maintainer for the influential CRIU project, the basis for most major efforts enabling live container migration. This is in addition to driving architecture for all of Virtuozzo’s components, including containers, VMs, and virtualized storage. In his leading role with CRIU, Pavel also oversees Virtuozzo’s other open source efforts, including OpenVZ and P.Haul. Earlier in his career as a kernel engineer, Pavel actively contributed to the Linux kernel and was a top-10 individual contributor for several releases. Pavel graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and technology with a PhD in Applied Mathematics.

I believe that Pavel’s deep technical and strategic efforts across the entire stack — containers, hypervisors, storage, migration — make him uniquely qualified to make him a excellent member of the CNCF TOC.

TOC nomination: Benjamin Hindman

Aaron Bell <aaron@...>
 

I would like to nominate Benjamin Hindman—a leader in the movement toward cloud-native application architectures—as a member of the Technical Oversight Committee for the CNCF. Ben was one of the original members of the AMPLab [1] at the University of California, Berkeley, where he co-created of Apache Mesos [2] (he is now a vice president at the Apache Software Foundation, where he oversees the Mesos project). He led the Mesos team at Twitter, overseeing the replatforming of Twitter on Mesos. Since 2012, Ben has been the co-founder and chief scientist at Mesosphere. 

Apache Mesos is considered a key technology in cloud-native computing [3]. In addition to Twitter, it runs some of the largest cloud-native clusters in the world at companies such as Apple (with which Ben worked closely as a consultant), Airbnb, Verizon, Samsung and many more. Mesos has been integrated as the core technology is Microsoft’s Azure Container Service, and has helped usher in a coming mass adoption of microservices in containers. 

Under Ben’s guidance, both Apache Mesos and Mesosphere have embraced and expanded the ecosystem of open source technologies required for building next-generation applications. The list of projects currently integrated with Mesos and Mesosphere’s commercial Datacenter Operating System includes Kubernetes, Docker, Marathon (developed by Mesosphere), Apache Spark, Apache Cassandra and Apache Kafka.

Prior to the creation of Mesos in 2010, Ben conducted advanced distributed computing and software programming research at various institutions, including the University of Washington, Microsoft Research, Google, and the UC-Berkeley. At UC-Berkeley, Ben also worked on a precursor to Mesos called Lithe; was a member of its RAD Lab and Par Lab programs (predecessors to the AMPLab); and helped develop the Dominant Resource Fairness algorithm [4]. Along with its eventual creators (and UC-Berkeley peers), Ben helped conceive of Apache Spark as a sample framework for data-processing on Mesos. 

Ben’s deep knowledge of distributed computing, as well as his experience building production cloud-native environments and packaging open source software for commercial use, make him an excellent candidate for the CNCF Technical Oversight Committee. 


Thanks,
Aaron Bell

Nomination for TOC - Fritz Ferstl, Univa

Rob Lalonde
 

Dear Members,

I would like to nominate Fritz Ferstl from Univa (formerly of Sun/Oracle) whom I believe would be an excellent member and contributor to the CNCF's TOC. 

He brings more than two decades of experience in workload and resource management to CNCF and therefore I am asking you to consider him as a member of the CNCF TOC. His track record includes the following:
  • 23 years as a leading expert in distributed workload and resource management
  • As the CTO of Univa Corporation defining product and technology direction for servicing several hundreds of large enterprise customers across all industry verticals on behalf of their workload management requirements. Among these customers are many of the largest computing environments that exist in large enterprises
  • In that role having helped to address the challenges created by workloads and operational models of all kinds, ranging from high throughput scenarios to persistent service environments and to extreme-scale, long-running, parallel computations
  • Having initiated, shepherded and helped grow the most widely used workload management systems in the world
  • Having led the open sourcing of Sun Grid Engine and acting 10 years as 'benevolent dictator' for it
  • Having participated in standards bodies such as GGF/OGF leading to sanctioned and widely adopted industry standards
As a member of CNCF's TOC I am confident that Fritz can help ensure that CNCF standards and recommendations:
  • evolve from early adopter solutions to solutions for a maturing market
  • can be implemented by ISVs and integrated into their products
  • provide best-in-class solutions for all use cases and workload types required by the various market verticals
  • can be integrated into standard enterprise IT environments
Fritz is convinced that rapid and vast adoption of CNCF standards and recommendations can be accomplished and would be thrilled to contribute to CNCF's success as a member of the CNCF TOC.

TOC Nomination / Ying Xiong (Huawei)

Peixin Hou
 

Dear CNCF members,

 

I would like to nominate Dr. Ying Xiong (from Huawei) to participate the TOC election.

 

Ying is the Chief Architect of Cloud Platform at Huawei, where he has been leading the architecture, design and development of Huawei PaaS platform that supports cloud native distributed system and micro services. He is guiding Huawei’s open source development in container related projects such as Docker, Kubernetes, OCI, Cloud Foundry, Mesos and Cloudify, and made the company a vital contributor in the communities. Ying has been working on software industry over 20+ years, he is a very hands-on technology leader and has been instrumental in building the cloud platform architecture that not only integrates various open source technologies, but also significantly improves the technologies in terms of reliability, scalability and performance to meet customer requirements. In addition to delivering PaaS, Ying is responsible for driving strategy and technology innovation for hyper-scale, heterogeneous and cross-DC cloud-native infrastructure, where he is currently driving projects such as large scale container cluster management, advanced container networking, container Devops and next generation micro service architecture. He believes these technologies will not only benefit Huawei’s telco and enterprise customers, but also the open source communities.

 

Ying has extensive experience in cloud computing. Prior to Huawei, he worked at Microsoft over 8 years and was a principal architect in Azure core team since 2009, where he led designing and developing a few core components (resource scheduling, app deployment, monitoring and auto scaling) of Azure, one of largest public cloud platforms in the world, and deploying and monitoring hundreds and thousands of applications per day. He received Architecture Metal Award and Gold Excellence Award during his stay at Microsoft.

 

Last but not least, I think Ying has another advantage. China is a vivid battle field for cloud native infrastructure, it is not only due to the massive customer base, but also due to the pace that new technologies and number of developers are emerging there. I believe Ying’s connections with these technical circles along with his culture background would make him play an ideal role to align the technical direction in CNCF.

 

So in summary, with his deep experience in cloud computing and immersed interest in building next generation cloud native open source technologies, and interoperability, I believe Ying would bring an invaluable perspective and experience to the CNCF technical committee. He sees CNCF as a home for building next generation interoperable cloud computing platform that can drive mass adoption with public cloud reliability and scalability.

 

Ying attends and speaks in industry and open source conferences. He promotes platform openness through blogs, quotes and interviews. Here are a few recent examples about his talks, quotes and interviews.
