Experience – Internap

Santa Clara, CA
Cloud Architect
April 2011 to March 2012

Cloud Architect for the Cloud Products group. Cloud Products were a new Internap offering in the data center. Cloud Products were based on OpenStack Compute (Nova) and Storage (Swift). I primarily worked on Swift. I built Swift Monitor daemons that monitored the state and performance of Swift. This monitoring included the Swift proxies and zones. I also investigated Swift performance improvements. These included database schema changes and storing Objects in raw disk partitions as opposed to file systems. Since OpenStack is written in Python, I implemented my work in Python.
