Today marks the completion of a full year at Red Hat. It has been an incredible year! I find myself positively challenged daily, working with some of the smartest people I have ever met — both my colleagues within Red Hat, and the customers I get to work with. I get the privilege of being able to work with Open Source technologies, and bring them to a great variety of enterprises. And I have even found my niche within Red Hat’s Identity Management space (imagine that!).
I do miss my team and other friends at UConn. UConn gave me great opportunity, both to gain strong technical skills, and to experience leadership, both formally as management, and informally as a mentor and vocal innovator. I place great value in those first 13 years of my professional career, and I look forward to achieving similar gains in my next 13 years!

I recently had the opportunity to join Gordon Haff ( Red Hat’s Cloud Evangelist ) and Ellen Newlands ( Red Hat’s Security and Identity Product Management) for a discussion about Identity Management and Cryptography. Check out what we had to say (audio or text) on Gordon’s Cloudy Chat Podcast .
9 digits, what do they mean to me? They are a milestone, for now I am an RHCE!
OK, so I’m no poet – but thankfully that is not a requirement at Red Hat! This week I took RH300, and today I passed both EX200 (RHCSA) and EX300 (RHCE). And so now, waiting for my flight out of DC, I celebrate:
Presentation by Qualcomm on their experience migrating from Xen/RHEL5 to KVM/RHEV6.
Straightforward advice — plan, plan, plan, then do.
Qualcomm reduced hardware deployment significantly and simplified management with the RHEV tool suite — significant operational savings.
Qualcomm made extensive use of the virt-v2v tool, but had to modify it (yay Open Source!) to make it cluster (RHCS) aware. Modifications are shipping with RHEV 6.3.
