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.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
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...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
