The State of The OpenStack Project

Over 2500 users, developers, vendors and fans attended the the Openstack Summit last month. That's a pretty impressive increase from 150 at the first summit in 2010. So what is going on? What is the Openstack project up to? And who is going to benefit? Join us for a perspectives from two insiders who should know.

Presentation #1: "The State of OpenStack" by Randy Bias, CoFounder & CTO of Cloudscaling

Randy is the co-founder of Cloudscaling and is on the Board of Directors of the OpenStack Foundation. Randy's provocative views on the profound disruption caused by cloud computing have made Randy Bias one of the most influential voices in the industry. Randy uses this influence to advocate an open and honest debate about which technologies will win in driving clouds to large-scale adoption.

Presentation #2: "Swift beyond OpenStack" by Joe Arnold, Founder & CEO of SwiftStack

Joe managed the first public OpenStack launch of Swift independent of Rackspace, and has subsequently deployed multiple large-scale cloud storage systems. He is currently building tools to deploy and manage OpenStack Swift with his firm, SwiftStack.
