Sorry to hear that you are leaving the Board. You have always been so warm and helpful to the new comers in the Gold member community. We will miss you greatly.

Jonathan, welcome to the OpenStack Gold member community.

Best regards,

OpenStack Board colleagues and Gold members,

After 4.5 years with DreamHost as CEO, the DreamHost Board and I are agreeing that I will step down as CEO effective November 25, 2015<x-apple-data-detectors://4>.

It's been a fantastic 4+ years in the role, and I have so appreciated being a part of forming the OpenStack Foundation, representing Gold members on the Board, and collaborating with the community and each of you to build OpenStack into what it is today.

I will still be very involved in OpenStack as a community member and through Akanda, the major contributor to the OpenStack Astara network virtualization and services orchestration project. As many of you know I co-founded Akanda in 2014 and Chair the Board, as well as being an investor.

The DreamHost Board has nominated Jonathan LaCour, VP Cloud at DreamHost, as my replacement Gold member Director. Jonathan is copied on this email and will engage directly with Gold members and the Board from this point on and I am sure you will find him a great successor to yours truly.

Thanks again for all the great times, debates, big ideas and teamwork. There will be many more together!

My personal email is and my cell is 310-600-1452
