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:

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.


Here are some examples of our latest open source projects:

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.

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.

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).


Google TOC Nomination: Brian Grant

Craig Mcluckie <craigmcl@...>
 

Brian Grant

Senior Staff Engineer, Google Corporation

briangrant@...


Google nominates Brian Grant as a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation Technical Oversight Committee.


During the past two years Brian has acted as primary architect for the Kubernetes project, responsible for defining the core domain model and API design.  He has overseen work in nearly every facet of the project, and has been responsible for the majority of standardization and consistency efforts across Kubernetes.  In this role, he worked closely with the broader open source contributor group to ensure that Kubernetes was a truly open effort, and clear guidance and feedback to the community effectively supporting a very broad base of committers (over 600).


Brian’s contributions to the Kubernetes were based on more than six years experience in building the internet scale orchestration systems that run Google’s businesses.  He acted as the technical lead on the Borg team responsible for the system’s control plane and founded and acted as the primary architect for Google’s Omega project,  the successor to Google’s Borg orchestration system.


Prior to joining Google Brian was the chief architect at Peakstream and built an HPC platform that was optimized for GPU and multi-core CPU support.  Brian has a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Washington, and completed his undergraduate degree in Computer Science at Purdue University.

TOC Nomination - Clayton Coleman

Chris Wright
 

Red Hat would like to nominate Clayton Coleman <ccoleman@...>
to the CNCF TOC.

Clayton is the Lead Architect on cloud orchestration and containers at Red
Hat, in charge of both technical direction for Kubernetes and OpenShift
(Red Hat's platform as a service built on top of Kubernetes) as well
as the broader container and container content efforts at Red Hat.
He guides the technical contributions of the large number of Red Hat
engineers who contribute daily to open source projects in the cloud
native space, including Docker, Mesos, Kubernetes, OpenStack, Rocket,
and the underlying Linux kernel technologies that make them all possible.
Individually, Clayton is the #2 contributor to Kubernetes and has been
deeply involved in its evolution and development since it has been open
sourced, and before that lead teams from Red Hat working to stabilize
Docker and the underlying operating components it depends on to make
containers a production reality. Previously at IBM, he gained deep
insight into the care and feeding of some painfully complex enterprise
applications, and he is empassioned to help build infrastructure that
can run the simplest microservice or the most mission critical monolith.
He is deeply committed to the success of the open source ecosystem that
powers containerization, the Devops movement, and the tools that make
cloud native real.

Through OpenShift, Clayton has represented and been involved in
advising many companies as they made their transition to automated
and containerized application environments - realizing the benefits
and helping identify the hidden pitfalls of modern infrastructure.
That experience has helped inform the design of both Kubernetes
and OpenShift - a focus on usability, approachability, and a deep
understanding of the challenges facing today's IT organizations.

While much attention has been paid to the infrastructure and projects
that run and support micro- and macro- service architectures, a greater
proportion of investment and evolution is needed still in the tools and
processes that support developers building, testing, maintaining, and
securing the software in cloud native environments - a transition Clayton
has been leading within Red Hat through OpenShift and the communities
it comprises. The industrialization of software is just beginning, and
helping teams and organizations define and automate their development
pipelines at scale (in clouds of all kinds) is a critical step in that
progression.

I support Clayton's nomination to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation's
Technical Oversight Committee because of his great ability to work
well within the community, provide technical leadership, and his germane
experience both developing enterprise applications and modern cloud-native
application infrastructure.

thanks,
-chris
