My name is Evan Callicoat and I am a Cloud Deployment Engineer at Rackspace out of San Antonio, Texas, working on the Rackspace Cloud: Private Edition deployment team. We leverage and help build Openstack, a cloud operating system built on free software and open standards. There are many challenges in modern cloud infrastructures, and a big part of my job is to conquer them. One goal of this blog is to elucidate my discoveries and creations along the way so others might benefit as well.
Outside of work I enjoy cooking with my girlfriend, MacGuyvering for my friends and family, writing and playing music, exploring new science, philosophy and technology, and entertaining myself in general. If other folks are likewise amused by my congenial jocularity, that's just a bonus.
