TAG Storage Co-Chairs and Tech Lead Nominations - TOC Vote


Alex Chircop
 

Hi all,

The Storage TAG would like to nominate two candidates for roles in the TAG: Xing Yang and Nick Connolly.   Both have been members of the TAG for a while and have been active contributors - they will continue to help strengthen the community and bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the group.

This follows on from Erin's move from the SIG/TAG to the TOC - thank you Erin for everything you have done with us since the SIG was formed.

Following the SIG operating model, Tech leads are assigned following a 2/3 majority vote of the TOC and a 2/3 majority vote of TAG Chairs.

We are incredibly excited to continue to work with Xing and Nick in these new roles and would like to thank them for their continued contributions to the community!

Short bios are listed below for convenience:

Hi all,

 

The Storage TAG would like to nominate two candidates for roles in the TAG: Xing Yang and Nick Connolly.   Both have been members of the TAG for a while and have been active contributors - they will continue to help strengthen the community and bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the group.

 

This follows on from Erin's move from the SIG/TAG to the TOC - thank you Erin for everything you have done with us since the SIG was formed.

 

Following the SIG operating model, Tech leads are assigned following a 2/3 majority vote of the TOC and a 2/3 majority vote of TAG Chairs.

 

We are incredibly excited to continue to work with Xing and Nick in these new roles and would like to thank them for their continued contributions to the community!

 

Short bios are listed below for convenience:

 

Xing Yang - Co-Chair Nominee

One sub-project that she co-leads, the volume snapshot project (https://github.com/kubernetes-csi/external-snapshotter) in SIG-Storage, moved to GA in Kubernetes 1.20 release.

 

Before joining VMware, Xing was the Lead Architect of OpenSDS (https://github.com/opensds, now SODA Foundation), an open source project under Linux Foundation, while working for Futurewei. She was also former core members in OpenStack Cinder and Manila projects. She worked at Dell EMC for many years and have developed deep expertise in storage, data protection, disaster recovery, cloud, and virtualization technologies.
