Red Hat

Perry Myers joined Red Hat in May 2007 as a developer working on

virtualization technologies. He was one of the original founders of the

oVirt project (in its first incarnation) and led the team developing a

lightweight KVM hypervisor distribution based on Fedora called oVirt Node.


Following the work on oVirt, Perry stepped into an engineering

management role with teams focused on the components that make up cloud

infrastructures (including oVirt Node, libvirt and most recently

OpenStack engineering at Red Hat). In addition, Perry also has

responsibility for high availability products (Pacemaker, RHEL High

Availability/Load Balancer). His current focus is on ensuring that

OpenStack is ready for enterprise-wide deployment for Red Hat's

customers and partners.


Perry continues to be involved in upstream communities and serves as a

member of the board for the oVirt project through his oversight of the

oVirt Node sub-project.


Prior to his roles at Red Hat, Perry worked as a researcher and software

engineer on several government research projects (in the areas of

intelligence analysis and security) for defense contractors like General

Dynamics Advanced Information Systems and BAE.
