June Boston OpenStack User Group Meetup

June Boston OpenStack User Group Meetup

Thursday, June 21, 2012, from 6:30 – 9:30PM, Location: The auditorium located at 85 Wells Avenue Newton, MA

Co-sponsored by Dell and RedHat

AGENDA:

We have two hot topics:

OPENSTACK SWIFT:

OpenStack Object Storage (code-named Swift) is open source software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of standardized servers to store petabytes of accessible data. It is not a file system or real-time data storage system, but rather a long-term storage system for a more permanent type of static data that can be retrieved, leveraged, and then updated if necessary. Primary examples of data that best fit this type of storage model are virtual machine images, photo storage, email storage and backup archiving. Having no central "brain" or master point of control provides greater scalability, redundancy and permanence.

Swift Version 1.5 is set for release the week of June 11th.  Get a clear understanding of the power of Swift, the changes in the current release and the features slated for the next major OpenStack release: Folsom.  As a bonus, watch how easy it is to setup OpenStack Swift with Dell's "Crowbar - the Cloud Unboxer."  Discussion that follows will include scalability considerations, monitoring, and management of the system.

SPEAKER:

Judd Maltin is a Systems Sr. Engineer with Dell's Enterprise Cloud Computing group.  He's deployed production Swift systems the terabyte/tens of millions of objects range.

 

Preparing OpenStack Quantum for the Data Center:

Quantum, OpenStack's virtual networking service, is slated to replace Nova's networking service in the upcoming Folsom release. Initial Quantum development has focused on the basic requirements of a green-field Nova cloud deployment. Additional requirements will be discussed that enable Quantum to support private Nova cloud deployments within existing data centers, as well as enterprise virtualization with the oVirt project. Initial work is underway for Folsom, and additional work will follow.

 

SPEAKER:

Bob Kukura is a Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat in Westford, MA, working on OpenStack. He is a core developer on the Quantum project, and maintains Quantum packaging for Fedora Linux. Prior to joining Red Hat, Bob has specialized in distributed computing and open standards at a variety of software vendors and defense contractors.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
