Gregory Ruiz-Ade has worked as a Systems Administrator, wearing various hats of differing size, shape and color, for the last 16 years. At ACTIVE Networks, LLC for the last three years, he’s transitioned from traditional systems administration and focussed more specifically on automation and configuration management, leading the transition to Chef within the organization during a massive infrastructure transition for one of ACTIVE Networks’ core platforms. Gregory is currently focussed on ACTIVE Networks’ private cloud initiative, leveraging Chef and VMware vRealize Orchestrator along with custom automation to help create internal IaaS/PaaS solutions with as little friction for the end-users as possible, while also automating full lifecycle management of internal ACTIVE Networks software platforms and infrastructure.
