NEC Corporation today announced that Mr. Kenichi Ohmichi, Senior Software Engineer, Global Solution Platform Center, NEC Corporation of America, has been named Project Team Leader (PTL) with the OpenStack Community's Quality Assurance (QA) Project. This is the first time that a Japanese national has been awarded this honor.
OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large amounts of compute, storage and networking resources throughout a datacenter. Mr. Ohmichi has made important contributions to improving the quality of OpenStack as a member of the OpenStack Community's QA Project, one of the most important of the OpenStack Community's approximately 50 projects.
The PTL is a valuable representative of the OpenStack Community who is responsible for formulating and discussing project development targets, as well as participating in negotiations and debates regarding these targets, while leading a diverse team of developers who are based throughout the world.
Ohmichi has been active in the OpenStack Community since 2012, where he has helped to develop the "Nova V2.1 API" and the "Tempest Integration Test" for the Nova and QA projects. Ohmichi's selection as a PTL reflects the valuable contributions he has made to the OpenStack Community.
"We congratulate Mr. Ohmichi on his election as the Quality Assurance PTL. DefCore interoperability testing is a priority for the Foundation this year, and this relies on a close working relationship with the QA team. We look forward to progress in this effort under Mr. Ohmichi's leadership," said Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation.
"High expectations are being placed on the possibilities for OpenStack's application across a wide range of domains, including IoT and blockchains," Ohmichi said. "Going forward, we will continue to cooperate with talented developers throughout the world in order to reinforce the quality of our products and secure confidence from our users."
In recent years, the use of OpenStack has been expanding globally with the deployment of OSS cloud infrastructure. Under this environment, NEC has been actively participating in the OpenStack Community since 2012, and is ranked 6th globally, 1st in Japan, in the level of contributions it has made to the number (release cycles) of integrated patches (revision codes) for the latest version of OpenStack, "Mitaka" (*).
