Rodrigue Chakode holds a PhD in computing science, with focus on resource management in distributed and cloud environments. Before and after my PhD (from 2008 to 2012) I worked on various IT monitoring projects with both open source and proprietary systems, aiming to leverage the best of the two worlds. Nagios & derived systems, Zabbix, HP Operations Management, ManageEngine OpManager, Zenoss, Pandora FMS, are few of systems I worked on. Strong supporter of open source software and passionate with open source monitoring, I started in 2010 writing the first lines of the software which becomes RealOpInsight. While I currently work as cloud software architect in a corporation, I still continue to develop and lead RealOpInsight project during my spare time.
