Greetings! I am currently a developer for Eucalyptus, and I work on Fedora-related things in my spare time. In a past life I was a sysadmin for compute-heavy Scientific Linux and Fedora shops. My main interests revolve around cloud computing infrastructure as well as package and system deployment.

Some things I do/have done for Fedora:

  • I collaborate with the Fedora Cloud SIG to help deploy modern versions of Fedora on Amazon EC2.
  • I maintain Fedora's and EPEL's packages for euca2ools, an open-source CLI for Eucalyptus and EC2.
  • I do packaging work for Eucalyptus on several distributions.
  • I worked on early versions of the Cobbler installation server.
