Come out to hear Felix Maldonado of Teradata talk to us about Openstack. He'll be doing an overview and breakdown of the different pieces of Openstack and will then follow that with an installation guide for a a few different configurations.
You've likely heard Openstack mentioned as being used by various companies as they build their private cloud (such as at last month's talk when Mark Imbriaco mentioned Living Social is using it). This is your opportunity to learn what it is, what it's about, and if it might work for you.
How to Get to the Talk:
The talk will be given at Teradata. The address is:
5565 Centerview Drive, Raleigh, NC
While the address is technically Raleigh, they are on the edge of Cary, as the are located just off of Jones Franklin Road, near where 40 and 440 meet. The Crossroads shopping center is not far away.
Parking is in the rear of the building and you'll see lots of steps up to the entrance of the building. Teradata is located on the third floor of the building. There is a buzzer in the event that the door ends up locked.
Will there be food and drink?
Teradata has offered to provide some pizza. Please RSVP so plans can made accordingly. There will also be soda, tea, and water.
