VMWare vCloud under the hood, and Apache CloudStack Q&A

Welcome to the inaugural VanCloud meetup, we have two very interesting guests lined up, Even Solberg from VMWare and Kelcey Damage, Apache CloudStack Committer. 

Location: Hive

Datetime: Nov 12th, 6:30-8pm

First speaker: Even Solberg

Even will be talking about VMware’s vCloud Hybrid Service under the Hood. This session will take us on an architectural whirlwind tour of VMware's new Hybrid Cloud service, giving an insider's perspective on how the service is put together.

Even Solberg is a 3-year VMware Senior Systems Engineer. He recently moved to the Vancouver area from Oslo, Norway where he prior to VMware spent 10 years in Cisco as a systems engineer and product manager.

Second Speaker: Kelcey Damage

Whether you are new to the cloud and need some on-ramping, or an experience cloud user and need some deep-diving, prepare a few questions and bring them to the meetup because Kelcey Damage, core Apache CloudStack contributor will host a “Q&A about the Cloud” session.

Kelcey is an Apache CloudStack Committer, Cloud Infrastructure Systems Architect, and Community Support on CloudStack irc channel, currently providing strategic technical mentorship for international technology and cloud computing startups. He recently completed technical review for Packt Publishings CloudStack book.


A big shout out to Polyglot Vancouver who gave us a big boost and helped kickstart the meetup, and our sponsors HootSuite, Dell and VMWare for making this meetup happen!

      Something AWS related might be nice, I've only put my toe in that giant pool and I'm curious to learn more. I'm more a grid computing guy (Torque, HPC, etc) since bioinformatics data is more embarrassingly parallel than anything else, but professionally I'd like to learn more about AWS and its cousins. Thanks for organizing these events! And thanks to Dell for the after-party!

    Hi, I was signed up for this but realized my wife and I have a pre-natal class for that nite :-(.

    I was really looking forward to attending, any chance of video?

    November 11, 2013

    • Beier C.

      Hi Gary, unfortunatley we are not prepared to video rrecord this one. will post the slides when available though.

  • Kelcey D.

    I can't talk about how over the last 4 days we have been fighting with bugs in VMware vCloud that forced us to do a total migration to AWS because the VMware gear was a write-off after a total power loss scenario. ;p

    • Even S.

      I'd love to have a discussion offline to learn more about what happened.

      November 5, 2013

    • Kelcey D.

      Sure... I'm just stoking the fire. It was pretty hectic. And there are very few cloud platforms that can resolve from such an outage. I'd be happy to have a friendly chat about it after or before the meetup :).

      Looking forward to all the cloud talk!

      November 5, 2013
