Wanted to take a minute and introduce myself to the group. As many of you know, I started with Jive on May 2 to head up the SaaS/Hosted operations group. Super excited to be here and ready to jump in - to that point, my first goals are to get an understanding of the hosting environment, continue the great work that Bob and the rest of the group has done thus far to make the environment as stable as possible and create long term plans for scalability as Jive grows.
I come to Jive from Mozilla where I ran the Engineering Operations group. I was at Mozilla for 5.5 yeas where we grew our environment from 3 racks with daisy chained 100mb switches to the 7 datacenter environment it is today where we normally push over 10gb/s including all server, network, datacenter and application architecture. I also headed up the metrics, infrasec, build/release, support, web development and services engineering groups. Previous to Mozilla I ran global datacenter operations for Macromedia, worked in a financial startup and wrote code for Cisco.
I would like to continue to solicit your input and be transparent with all of you around all things related to Jive Hosting. I will take over ownership and communication via this group to collaborate with all of you. Extremely excited to be here and help the group continue the great work they already have in progress. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns, and look forward to working with all of you!
