Hello, I’m Zespre from Taiwan. This is where I share my exploration on open-source software especially on cloud native things. As a software engineer, I mainly focus on streamlining the development process, from methodologies to implementations. Bringing values to customers and colleagues is the core vision that I believe and trying to fulfill.

I was a sysadmin serving at CSCC in NCTU (now being NYCU) while doing master’s degree. My mission was to maintain a bunch of FreeBSD servers and various services running on top of them. What I gained the most is the experience of defining problem scopes and finding root causes in a short period of time.

Three years later I started my career at Information and Communications Research Laboratories, ITRI. I was dedicated to the development of a tool for bare-metal server provisioning, called BAMPI. Our client is one of the most largest teleco in Japan. It was hard but an interesting experience to deal with the requests from Japanese customer. After that, we noticed there was a need to manage physical resource pool just like the cloud service providers do. People can request for physical resources in terms of compute, networking, and storage, in a self-service way. So I designed and implemented a platform called PROP (Physical Resource Orchestration Platform), and it turned out to be a product of the company, which was renamed to ITRI HaaS (Hardware as a Service). This is the solution which unlocks cloud-like agility for your on-prem infrastructure. It’s suitable for all kinds of scales such as edges, enterprise cores, even cloud data centers.

Cloud Service Models

Recently, I’m spending a lot of time playing around with cloud native projects and figuring out how cloud native technologies can aid bare-metal clouds in the era of 5G and edge computing.
