Yusuf Yıldız

After more than 10 years of system management and operations management experience, I am currently working as a solution architect. Also I’m giving my support to the SODA Open Source community by being an Architectural Design member.

Through these years, I expanded my knowledge especially in the field of multi-tenant cloud storage. After successfully serving the largest “storage as a service” solution in Turkey, I started working in LINBIT, which has been developing block storage solutions for over 20 years.

Apart from these, I am currently working as a freelance consultant.
