Last month we wrote a little love letter for Nick Ruest and his many contributions to the Islandora community. This month we are hopping across the Atlantic to do another “CCK” (sorry) and talk about the work being done by Giancarlo Birello.
Giancarlo is the System and Network Manager at the CNR-Ceris IT Office, which serves about 400 users and provides help-desk and network services for research teams. With Giancarlo, they have deployed IPv6 protocol along local networks and a storage service based on a full open source solution and a virtualized infrastructure built on KVM open source software. He also serves as the regional reference for CNR network in Piedmont and Access Point Manager for GARR, the Italian member of Terena - the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association.
If you're landing on this post, then you probably already know the strengths and challenges of an open-source approach to software development. With Islandora, we strive to maximize the strengths, and meet the challenges. But, let's face it - any open-source project can only ever be as good as its contributors.
