Hi! I'm Christian Schwede, a software engineer living in Hamburg, Germany and working remotely for Red Hat. I spend most of my work time developing on Software Factory, a powerful CI/CD platform to build software. I also contribute to OpenStack Swift, an open-source object storage system and support our customers running Swift at large scale.
I started using GNU/Linux about 20 years ago, and already worked part-time doing DevOps in the early 2000s during my university time - even before it was called DevOps. Back then I operated and designed distributed mail, storage and compute systems for companies in the financial and aviation sector.
I think OpenStack Swift is a great choice to store unstructured data in a reliable, distributed and highly available way, and therefore I do my best to spread the word about it.
I prefer a good old email if you want to get in touch with me - just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use my GPG key if you want to send me some sensitive informations. Some of my work is available on Github, and I also wrote a post or two on the RDO project blog.
