We are pleased to announce a seriously good addition to the our product team: Ratnadeep (Deep) Bhattacharjee. Deep joins Canonical as Director of Cloud Product Management from VMware where he led its Cloud Infrastructure Platform effort and has a solid understanding of customer needs as they continue to move to virtual and cloud infrastructure.
Ubuntu has fast become the operating system of choice for cloud computing and Ubuntu is the most popular platform for OpenStack. With Deep’s direction, we plan to continue to lead Ubuntu OpenStack into enterprises, carriers and service providers looking for new ways to deliver next generation infrastructure without the ‘enterprise’ price tag and lock in. He will also be key in building out our great integration story with VMWare to help customers who will run heterogeneous environments. Welcome Deep!
