I am interested in the recent wave of Cloud, SDN, NFV and Devops developments and how that allows for the Network to be an open system instead of a closed one. I try to follow the latest developments in Open source projects like Opendaylight, Openflow, Openstack, Opencompute, Docker, CoreOS and how it all ties together. You can find my hacky code here.

Currently, I am working as a Senior Manager in Cisco Systems, Bangalore. I work in the Data center group focusing on the Cisco UCS product-line. I have around 18+ years experience in the Networking industry. I am part of Docker bloggers/captain forum and I give presentations at Docker/Open source meetups in Bangalore when I get a chance.

I am Author of “Mastering CoreOS” book, technical reviewer for “Mastering Ansible” book and “Ansible for Network automation” report. I am currently reviewing Network programmability and Automation book, CoreOS Cookbook.

In this blog, my goal is to capture things that I am learning as part of this new wave of technology developments happening in the Cloud and Networking industry. The opinions expressed are my own and does not reflect opinions of my employer. You can reach me through linkedin or follow me in Twitter at @srmakam.
