John was privileged to lead the team that built, deployed, and operated the first OpenStack technology in production, at scale. The project was the Swift Object Store and the product was (and is) Rackspace Cloud Files. Two months after going into production the  project was open sourced as one of the initial core projects for OpenStack.


Later, as VP of Open Source Cloud at HP, he led the engineering and operations teams that stood up the initial OpenStack-based HP Public Cloud. This was done on an aggressive timeline, utilizing the best of open source components made it feasible to bring up a data center with multiple availability zones, providing compute and object storage services, in a matter of months.
