The Great AWS API Debate

You’ve read the points, counterpoints, and chatter. Now, let’s come out from behind the blog posts and tweets to address the question head on, live and in person.

Randy Bias of Cloudscaling and Boris Renski of Mirantis will participate in a moderated debate on the merits of embracing AWS and the AWS API in OpenStack. Joe Arnold of SwiftStack will moderate the debate, starting with a set of questions then opening the forum for audience questions.

The idea is to explore the question of AWS architecture and API compatibility in a community forum where we can begin developing a set of specific and actionable questions for the relevant Technical Committees in OpenStack to explore. Let’s have some (respectful) fun with a hot issue and see if we can move the ball forward.

    The event tonight will begin promptly at 7pm, so arrive in plenty of time to clear building security, socialize with some food and a beverage, then find a seat.

    SiliconANGLE.tv will webcast the event live, so share the link with anyone you know who is interested in the conversation about AWS and OpenStack. Also, SiliconANGLE is hosting a CrowdChat for this event. Go to crowdchat.net/openstack or just use the #openstack hashtag.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
