7:30pm - 8:30pm: Don't Break the Glass! In Case of Emergency by John Kinsella, Apache CloudStack Project Management Committee Member & Founder of Stratosec

In the last few moments you’ve realized a horrible mistake has occurred within your cloud - what do you do? This talk will cover real-life experiences (minus the yowling and swearing) on how to save as much as possible from complete destruction. This talk will be focusing on undocumented methods to recover as much as possible - from somebody who has brought VMs back from “Expunge,” but has also had to make the call to the customer to inform that their data was lost.

The intention of this talk is something for you to become familiar with and have on-hand when the stuff hits the fan.
