Bay Area OpenStack Meet & Drink

Bay Area OpenStack Meet & Drink
Hosted by Mirantis & Cloudscaling

Topic: Bootstrapping OpenStack to Corporate IT

Description:
Join other OpenStack users, backers, and hackers for the bay area quarterly meet & drink. During this session we’ll talk about bootstrapping OpenStack to the requirements of a typical, corporate IT department. It may be straightforward to start using OpenStack out of the box; fitting OpenStack to corporate IT with its many compliance and security standards can, however, present some challenges.
7pm to 8pm we’ll have two OpenStack fanatics host an interactive session, presenting solutions and workarounds to some of these challenges.

Joe Arnold – former director of engineering at Engine Yard and now at Cloudscaling will talk about designing a small scale object storage system using Swift

Mike Scherbakov – lead OpenStack hacker at Mirantis will cover:

  • Integration with legacy LDAP for non-authorization tasks
  • Advanced networking features
  • Supporting live migration to troubleshoot / upgrade physical hardware
  • Disaster recovery mechanisms

“Meet and drink” implies that we’ll have an open bar and food throughout the duration of the event.

The event is free, but we’d appreciate if you can RSVP so we can plan food, drinks and seating capacity accordingly.

    Thank you to everyone for attending yesterday and making it a blast! I've summed up the event with links to presentations in a blog post here - http://bit.ly/lYdtdj. We'll render and post the video clips of the presentations tomorrow.

    The networking was great, the russion folk music was awesom, only the main presentation was a bit too technical and could have been a bit more structured.

    Excellent insights from Mirantis and CloudScaling use case presentations with a focus on Swift and also Nebula.

    Good meeting. Had hoped that CloudScaling would talk a bit more about SWIFT. It was only a 5 minute introduction. Meeting was a nice mix of technology and how OpenStack is actually being used. Would have been nice to talk a bit about the applications or workloads on OS.

    Great event. Mirantis knows how to do it up. First time I've ever seen vodka and an accordion player, combined with highly technical talks, at a meetup!

    The meetup was good and talked much details about the Mantis customization of Openstack. I would have liked it even better if it started with more details on OpenStack and how it fits into the cloud computing model.

    Sorry to spam. My motorcycle was apparently tipped down in the parking lot. If you've seen anything or did it and left without leaving a note (but was nice enough to put the bike up), would be very much appreciated you contact me. Thanks. Broken helmet and accelerator made the ride back to SF interesting... Sorry again for polluting the discussions.
    Other than that, the event was great. nice to see that in the future, the cloud would also provide wine!

    Guys, given the spectacular demand for the event, we are now negotiating getting a larger space at the computer history museum. There is a good possibility we'll have some additional space. If all goes well, we'll update the RSVP limit tomorrow - good news for all of you on the wait list.
