Introduction to Cloudstack @ BBD Century City

Oct 5, 2017 · Cape Town, South Africa

We are very excited to have Giles and Daan from ShapeBlue joining us to talk about Apache Cloudstack:


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.

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.

We'll arrange some social drinks, some hacking lunches, the odd technical presentation. Might be fun. This is an attempt at getting a
