Storing data in the cloud with GlusterFS and OpenStack Swift

Udo Seidel is no stranger to dealing with enormous file stores. Udo is Section Manager for Linux Strategy and Server Automation at Amadeus Data Processing GmbH and will be giving a talk with Vijay Bellur at DevNation in San Francisco, California later this month on developing applications with GlusterFS and OpenStack Swift. In this interview, I asked Udo about his involvement in the open source community, cloud storage, and his talk at DevNation.
