Virtualization Magazine on Ulitzer

Open Kernel Labs (OK Labs) announced the appointment of Atish Gude to the company's Board of Directors. A seasoned mobile broadband executive, Gude brings more than a decade of strategic telecommunications experience to the OK Labs Board. Most recently, Gude served as Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Clearwire Corporation, a leading provider of advanced high-speed Internet services to consumers and businesses. With his strong mobile operator background, Gude's director role reinforces OK Labs' comprehensive, end-to-end vision of the mobile/wireless ecosystem, from handset software to operator services to the end-user experience.

"Atish brings deep operator-side expertise and broad industry insight to our board," said OK Labs President and CEO Steve Subar. "His tenure with the carrier segment of telecoms, especially in 3G and 4G build-out and mobile services evolution, will help OK Labs extend the reach and value proposition of mobile virtualization."

Gude's career spans a "who's-who" of mobile broadband. He came to Clearwire as part of the company's merger with Sprint's Xohm business. Previously, Gude led Xohm, Sprint Nextel's 4G business unit, and served as the SVP of Mobile Broadband Operations. Earlier, he was the Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Development for Sprint Nextel, where he was responsible for Sprint Nextel's wireless broadband strategy, planning, and technology selection.

"Open Kernel Labs is the clear leader in mobile virtualization, an exciting technology that is transforming the mobile/wireless ecosystem," said Gude. "The OK Labs OKL4 Microvisor is already deployed in more than 500 million handsets. With the recent selection of OKL4 by ST-Ericsson, OK Labs will have the opportunity to enable an even greater portion of the global mobile marketplace, including emerging 4G technologies and services."

Gude has also served as a member of the Board of Directors of Virgin Mobile - USA. He joins a diverse and dynamic OK Labs Board of Directors, with representatives of OK Labs incubator NICTA (National ICT, Australia), Citrix, NEO Technology Ventures, and Chrysalis Ventures. Gude has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Syracuse University and an MBA from The University of Chicago.

At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way. It’s easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the right tooling. To bring about a cultural shift it’s important to share challenges. In simple terms, ensuring that everyone k...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
"There is a huge interest in Kubernetes. People are now starting to use Kubernetes and implement it," stated Sebastian Scheele, co-founder of Loodse, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
