In this session we will take a look at RedHat's OpenShift platform. You can run it on an USB stick and it is quite easy to get started if you want to try it out. Join us for overview and a demo.

Synopsis: The code that powers Red Hat's OpenShift platform as a service is now open source. OpenStack, is the fastest growing IaaS project around. Fedora, is the fast moving Linux distro packed full of cloud and virt awesomeness. Combining these together creates a killer combination of IaaS and PaaS goodness. Join this session with Red Hatters Chris and Mark to learn what OpenStack is, what's new in the Essex release and how to get an OpenStack instance up and running on Fedora in no time at all. You don't need a datacenter to get started with this baby! We'll then cap it off by deploying and configuring the code that powers OpenShift on top of it. What you end up with is a soup to nuts open source cloud. It doesn't get any better then that!
