An introduction to Apache Cloudstack and working on Apache projects.
Apache CloudStack is Java-based, open source software designed to deploy and manage highly available, highly scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platforms. In this talk, Giles will give an introduction to the technology, its history and its architecture. He will look common use-cases (and some real production deployments) that he sees across both public and private cloud infrastructures. Giles will also compare and contrast Apache Cloudstack with other IaaS platforms. He will run a live demo of the software and talk about ways that people can get involved in the Apache CloudStack project.
Giles will also give a more general overview of the Apache Software Foundation, its projects and the benefits of getting involved as a developer.
Giles Sirett is CEO & founder of ShapeBlue, the leading independent CloudStack integrator & consultancy. He is an active contributor, committer and PMC member of the Apache CloudStack project and also Chairman of the European Cloudstack User Group. He has worked with many high-profile organisations, helping them strategise, design and implement CloudStack based clouds.
Time permitting we will have a second talk from Nitsan:
Profilers Are Lying Hobbitses
Everybody hates a lying hobbit... but are profilers broken or are we naive in our expectations? In this talk we will re-visit our misguided assumptions, try and make sense of broken measurements and see how and why they come about.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
