    [EN] Randy Bias: My Last Day at EMC

    Mais uma vez valeu a "regra" de 18-24 meses de permanência em cargo decorativo na empresa adquirente.

    "Morando com o inimigo" definiria para a EMC o que significou acolher Randy por 2 anos.

    "Foi um privilégio e uma honra ... ter fundado a minha empresa".

    Posted on Oct 14, 2016 by Randy Bias

    This is my last day at Dell EMC. It was a privilege and an honor to found and lead Cloudscaling, one of the leaders in OpenStack, which was acquired by EMC on October 14th, 2014, exactly two years ago. Coincidentally, this is also my birthday. While working at EMC I learned an enormous amount about operating successfully at large enterprise vendors.

    I want to thank all of the Cloudscalers who helped Cloudscaling deploy a number of prestigious OpenStack clouds and making history. Including, but not limited to, all of the following:

    • KT uCloud, the first public cloud in South Korea (OpenStack Swift @ scale in early 2011)
    • AT&T’s SilverLining project, the first major telco initiative around OpenStack, completed in late 2011
    • Walmart’s private cloud project based on our product, Open Cloud System (OCS), which supported Black Friday twice in 2014 and 2015

    More recently, the Cloudscalers were at the heart of the Dell EMC VxRack Neutrino product, which is a greatly under-appreciated part of the Dell EMC portfolio. I hope that it ultimately succeeds in the market place.

    The list of Cloudscalers to thank is much too long and there were several generations. You all know who you are and that I will always regard your willingness to follow my and Adam’s leadership as a blessing and foundational to our success.

    I also want to thank a bunch of fabulous people at EMC who supported my mission there. In particular, CJ Desai, my boss, for making sure I had what I needed to succeed and Josh Bernstein, who was primary partner in crime while here. Blake McConnell also for being there to hear my gripes when I had them and giving me straight feedback. I also had a great bunch of peers who were incredibly helpful including Manuvir Das, Boaz Palgi, Dan Dougherty, Doug Bowers, and many others.

    There was a special team of folks in Moscow who included some legacy Cloudscalers but also new people who graciously followed my lead on building some awesomeness into OpenStack, Mirantis Fuel, Canonical OpenStack, and RedHat OpenStack. They basically made me look good:

    • Alex Levine
    • Feodor Tersin
    • Andrey Pavlov
    • Anastasia Kravets
    • Alexey Morlang

    A big shout out to all of the various investors that supported us, including Dan Scholnick and Fred Wang at Trinity, Ankur Singla and Pradeep Sindhu at Juniper, and the folks at Seagate.

    My co-founder at Cloudscaling, Adam Waters, has always been an amazing partner and friend. Without him, Cloudscaling would have imploded multiple times.

    Finally and most importantly, my wife, Donna Bias and my beautiful baby, Lia Kae Bias.

    Farewell & I’ll See You Soon

    Obviously this industry is too small to truly say farewell. But I do want to say farewell in my capacity as a Cloudscaler and EMCer. That chapter is closed. And while I will always be a Stacker I expect I will take a much broader view of things in the near future. If I am not blogging here, I’ll be blogging elsewhere.

    You know where to find me.



    Ps. Yes, I’m going somewhere else. No, I won’t tell you yet, but you’ll know on Monday.

    Welcome Randy Bias to Juniper Networks

    Ankur Singla

    At Juniper Networks, our products are at the heart of some of the world’s largest Telco and SaaS Providers’ networks. But increasingly, our customers are not only demanding solutions for software-defined networking, but they’re now asking Juniper to help solve operational challenges and workload management in both Telco Cloud and Enterprise Hybrid Cloud environments. We continue to aim towards solving these problems and ultimately these may lead our solutions – especially OpenContrail – in some exciting new directions.

    To that end, we're taking an important step by expanding our team to include a cloud visionary who not only understands the philosophy behind cloud computing, but has also helped refine the concept and put it in motion with some of our customers.

    Today, Randy Bias is joining Juniper as Vice President of Technology of our Cloud Software products. His role will be to define and lead the company’s strategy for products and partnerships focused on agile cloud. As part of his charter, Randy will serve as an industry evangelist on these topics, and will carry Juniper’s vision to a variety of diverse cloud and open source communities in areas beyond traditional networking.

    For more than 25 years, Randy has worked in networking, information security, systems engineering, storage, and automation. His early leading work in cloud computing and strong understanding of the landscape makes him a natural fit for Juniper. He has a deep understanding of the intersection where webscale computing, storage, networking, information security, and mass automation converge to create the third generation of IT infrastructure. A well-known advocate for hyper-scale clouds architected on AWS running cloud-native apps, he coined the pets vs. cattle meme – a direct attack on the traditional application development paradigm and its unsuitability in cloud computing architectures.

    Randy’s OpenStack startup, Cloudscaling, was one of the original 25 founding companies who backed the OpenStack project, years before the OpenStack Foundation was formed. In the two years since the acquisition of Cloudscaling by EMC, Randy gained invaluable experience with enterprise customers, witnessing firsthand how customers think about their evaluation, planning, deployment and operation of cloud resources.

    Randy joining our leadership team is about much more than OpenStack. It’s about expanding our comprehensive suite of solutions, powered by the right open source technologies, to solve customer problems. Please join me in welcoming Randy to the Juniper team, and stay tuned for innovative product developments around our evolving customer needs.
