About Me

Ken Pepple

I build computing infrastructure.

I founded a company called Solinea that helps clients do this too. As you can imagine from my blog content, Solinea focuses on clouds, OpenStack and Kubernetes.

I used to do this for clients of Cloud Technology Partners (cloudTP), where I led their open source cloud infrastructure efforts. Before I joined cloudTP, I served as Director of Cloud Development for a cloud service provider (Internap Network Services), where I led their initial engineering efforts for their OpenStack public cloud. In the distant past, I worked at Sun Microsystems as a Principal Engineer, Technical Director and Chief Technologist for various business units.

Along with my normal work duties, I have also authored a few books, written some code and done a bit of public speaking and press interviews.
