Openstack Amsterdam September Meetup & Openstack 101

*Kindly sponsored by Red Hat*

Time has come for another gathering of all Openstack & Ceph users in Amsterdam. This time, we'll have our first Ceph talk and due to high request, we'll run an introductory mini-workshop on Openstack for the ones that have no idea what this is all about. If you already have knowledge of Openstack, you can cut to the chase and show up at 19:00, when we'll start with the tech talks.

The tentative program shall look like this:

17:00 Introduction

17:15 Openstack 101 (bring your laptop!)

We will help install RDO (community distribution for RPM-based distros) on a VM on your laptop (please have Virtualbox installed) so you can get a first-hand experience of Openstack. 

18:45 End of session, refreshments and mingling while waiting for more people to arrive

19:45 First talk: Taco Scargo (Inktank, @tacoscargo) talking about Ceph (title to be announced)

20:30 Second talk: Rosco Nap (CloudVPS) 'Developing and deploying a modern application on OpenStack'

21:00 Third talkOded Nahum (PlumGRID) 'Technical Intro to PLUMgrid OpenStack Networking Suite and demo'

21:45 Lighting talk, if anyone wants to get the stage for 5 minutes, more than welcome (please refrain from marketing pitches)

21:30 -22:30 More networking and socialising

As you can see, we'll cover most bases: networking, application and storage, so everyone will be satisfied (at least we try!).

If you can't get enough of Openstack don't forget to register for the first Openstack Conference in Benelux here: and of course for the bi-yearly official Openstack summit in Paris in November:

    For a workaround of RDO on Centos7:

    replace the content of /etc/redhat-release with "Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)". Feels like cheating.. :(

    question: can you elaborate a bit on what is meant by refreshments? Is that pizza or another form of a meal? This to determine if I need to eat dinner before the meetup or not.

    September 3, 2014

    • Alessandro V.

      Hello Dinner will be served at 7, not sure about the details but if you have special dietary requirements let me know and I'll arrange with the kitchen. See you later!
