Auto-scaling applications on OpenStack using Cloud Foundry as your PaaS.

Check out the cool topics for our April session - sponsored by Altoros! We've got two GREAT topics that are HOT in the OpenStack community. Thanks to Altoros for sponsoring our April session. Here are the details!

First up is "Auto-scaling applications on OpenStack using Cloud Foundry as your private PaaS." In this session, Renat Khasanhyn, CEO of Altoros, will discuss and demo the following:

• The Architectural constraints for applications in the world of PaaS

•  How to deploy Cloud Foundry on OpenStack in 3 steps

•  Live demo of deploying an app in less than 30 seconds

• Life cycle considerations and a simple 3 node Cloud Foundry cluster reference architecture

Employing one of the largest pools of Cloud Foundry engineering expertise on the market, Altoros provides consulting and managed services on the intersection of Cloud Foundry, multi-cloud deployment automation of Cloud Foundry, PaaS application architecture and integration with SQL/NoSQL/Hadoop. Mr. Khasanshyn is also founder of Apatar, an open source data integration toolset, founder of Silicon Valley NewSQL User Group and co-founder of the Belarusian Java User Group.

Our second session, Amrith Kumar the CTO of ParElastic will cover will provide an introduction to a Database as a Service on OpenStack and will dive into an architectural overview of the Trove project and how to architect and deliver database as a service for your users. Trove is an open source project in OpenStack that delivers highly scalable, available database as a service for MySQL (and more in future).
