Welcome Costin

Hello, my name is Costin and I like Linux!
In the last 10 years or so I’ve been in various Linux engineering roles, from sysadmining to SREing and a couple in between, but the big reveal is they all require roughly the same set of skills. Since 2015 I was more involved in academia, first while working for CERN and then for EPFL.

Diagrams with Draw.io

I think it can be said that at VSHN we have a certain obsession with documentation. This goes beyond the requirements set by our customers, or by those imposed by certifications such as the ISO 27001 or ISAE-3402. We have found that as a team we can work better when we can refer to written documentation at all times.

This Open Service Broker (OSB) integration with Crossplane allows to consume Crossplane objects by any OSB capable client infrastructure like Cloud Foundry and makes it possible to offer any kind of services via the many Crossplane providers. More of what we do with this integration will be written in an upcoming blog post.
