What rhymes with SUSE? Absolutely nothing!
Unless you cheat like that lazy Emily Dickenson and use slant rhyme. By the way, I have no idea who that is or where that came from.
Nothing rhymes with SUSE because it’s pronounced SOO-zuh. Did you know that?! I had no idea. I’m pretty sure that I pronounced it 6 ways to Sunday, but never correctly.
Say it with me. Sooo-zuh. Again. Sooo-zuh. OK, I think we’re good.
Moving along, we have a terrific presenter who is traveling a great distance to chat with us. Rick Ashford, Linux Technical Sales Specialist, is based in Austin, TX and works for SUSE. He has generously donated his time to talk about his company’s OpenStack distro, SUSE Cloud. SUSE Cloud is an enterprise-class platform that is integrated with Crowbar, the open source framework that manages and configures the OpenStack deployment.
Rick will cover what makes up the SUSE Cloud solution, the tools that can integrate with it, and he’ll use it to demo an OpenStack private cloud deployment.
IMPORTANT: Parking in the Coloft parking lot is not permitted – punishable by tow. However, there is street parking available and it’s free because the meters are not active after 6PM.
There is also a parking lot nearby that has a $3 flat rate after 6PM.
