How has the organization participated in or contributed to an open source project?

Everything Acme Gating does to support customers goes upstream first. In addition to contributing code, James reviews almost every change to Zuul and manages the release process.

What open source technologies does the organization use in its open infrastructure environment?

Acme Gating supports Zuul.

What is the scale of your open infrastructure environment?

Acme Gating supports installations, running several thousands of jobs per hour.

What kind of operational challenges have you overcome during your experience with open infrastructure?

Since its founding, Acme Gating has, along with the rest of the Zuul community, helped make Zuul a completely distributed, scalable, and fault-tolerant system. Helping Zuul scale like this has virtually eliminated downtime and opened the door to greatly increased utilization.

How is this team innovating with open infrastructure? 

Acme Gating is supporting Zuul users with difficult cross-team collaboration needs and continues to develop improvements in this area. Zuul is the only CI system in this space.
