CNBB Securities

CNBB Securities is a large financial services company. They have a large IT infrastructure that runs many mission-critical applications. They are rarely on the cutting edge of new technologies but they are aware of them. They value solid, industry standard technology backed up by vendor support.

How do you use Horizon Today?

I regularly log into Horizon to monitor the health and resource utilization of my infrastructure and to identify potential issues. I also use it to visualize my network topology. I sometimes use Horizon to spin up instances but use a combination of CLI and scripts to automate larger tasks.

What are your main responsibilities?

I manage the cloud, but need more detail.

What do you think about working with the OpenStack Community?

I like how vibrant and active the community is at sharing information. I like to tinker and try things out. If I get stuck, I’ll ask questions via IRC or the mailing list and someone always responds. I’m very optimistic about the future of OpenStack. I wish I had time to contribute to OpenStack, but I’m too busy in my current role to do so.

What are the key obstacles that you see with OpenStack Today?

I don't feel there are any big obstacles as I've been able to work around most issues so far. I'm hopeful that OpenStack will continue to improve and make my job easier.
