10:00 - 10:30 Welcome: Joe Brockmeier, Open Source Cloud Computing Evangelist, Citrix
Will kick off the event with a review of the program and short talk on cloud computing.

10:30 - 11:30 Deploying an IaaS Cloud with Apache CloudStack - David Nalley, Apache CloudStack
Apache CloudStack is arguably one of the most mature, frequently deployed IaaS platforms - having been used in multi-national public clouds, and private clouds scaling to tens of thousands of physical compute nodes, we’ll look at considerations for deploying CloudStack and how to gain the most efficiency from your deployment.

11:30 - 12:30 Scaling Storage with Ceph - Ross Turk, InkTank
Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of failure, and is supported by the Linux kernel. This talk will describe the Ceph architecture, share its design principles, and discuss how it can be part of a cost-effective, reliable cloud stack.

12:30 - 1:30 Lunch

1:30 - 2:30 Deploying Private PaaS with ActiveState Stackato - Diane Mueller, Director Cloud Evangelism, ActiveState
This presentation covers building and deploying a Private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on CloudStack. Diane Mueller, ActiveState’s Cloud Evangelist shows how to deploy ActiveState’s Stackato, an enterprise- ready multi-lingual Private PaaS that runs on any cloud and supports deploying and managing web & mobile applications in any language including Java, .Net, Python, Perl, PHP Ruby, Node.js, Clojure, Scala and Erlang - to name a few. Using the CloudStack UI, Diane demonstrates how to configure and deploy the PaaS and then shows how easy it is to push a live application in under an hour.

2:30 - 3:30 DevOps: Your Competitive Advantage in the Cloud - John M. Willis, EnStratus
As IT goes through a tectonic shift from cost center to profit center, the importance of IT operations is also being redefined. If you are primarily worried about uptime and server-to-admin ratios, you are already behind the times. Today’s top performing operations professionals are obsessed with how they can enable the business to innovate quicker, react quicker to market and competitive demands, and scale up for the win. With a heathy doses of DevOps, Lean thinking, infrastructure as code, and open source tools like RunDeck, Puppet and Chef, these top performers are turning their operations from a necessary cost center into a strategic weapon.

3:30 - 4:30 Cloud Panel and Close
We’ll wrap up the Build a Cloud Day with a panel discussion and a time for Q&A with all the speakers.
