It is great that you want to join oVirt Strategically. More information can be found at http://www.ovirt.org/governance/board/

There are two way to join the board, through contribution to the broader project concerns, or strategically as a company by committing to provide dedicated resource working on oVirt. It appears that want a your team to engage around oVirt which is great and would qualify Virtual Bridges to then have a strategic seat.

Are you able to provide information your intentions, and then I will bring it to a vote. Alternately if you would like to discuss the type of commitment contribution on a call, let me know and I will arrange.

king regards

I am Leo Reiter, CTO of Virtual Bridges, Inc.  Since 2008 we have been leveraging KVM (and QEMU before that) to deliver best of breed VDI solutions to compete with the likes of VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop.  We have made available various enhancements to KVM that we are working on getting upstreamed.

I would like to understand the process of getting onto the board.  I bring 11 years of experience in virtualization, specifically VDI, and over 4 years of experience with KVM specifically.  This includes large scale deployments at various private sector and public sector customers.  My role as CTO has been a combination of Chief Architect, Designer, Developer, and Advocate.  I will even be delivering a speech at LinuxCon North America 2012 on "Making Linux VDI a Reality".

I am also happy to instruct my developers to get experienced with the ovirt platform and even consider becoming a maintainer.  But I believe my industry experience may be valuable to the board as well, to bring a practical customer-centric perspective to the organization.

Thank you very much in advance,
Leo Reiter
