A quarterly meetup for people interested in open infrastructure, including virtualization, cloud infrastructure, and networking technologies.
This quarter's meetup schedule:
Dan will be talking about his OpenStack Summit Berlin presentation, "Protecting your OpenStack cloud with an automated backup and recovery strategy"
For this quarter's meetup, we have a special guest presentation. Michael Mallon from UQ's Research Computing Centre will talk about the NeCTAR Research Cloud, which uses OpenStack. Here's some info from Michael:
"Operating an OpenStack deployment is an interesting gig regardless of scale. It’s especially interesting when other organisations are also operating the same deployment as a federation. The NeCTAR Research Cloud is all of that and has been running continuously in production since the Diablo release. I have been working for the Research Computing Centre at UQ since 2011 in various devops and support capacities. My current role at the RCC involves developing, supporting and operating the Queensland NeCTAR and RDS facilities for QCIF (I’ll explain the acronym soup at the talk). I’ll be talking about how NeCTAR works and my experiences as an operator for Queensland node of NeCTAR."
If we have time afterwards, Dan Macpherson will talk about some of the different OpenStack quickstart tools available.
Food and soft drinks will be provided. See you all there!
Robin will be giving us a follow-up from our last meetup on his progress with Citellus, a framework populated by community-contributed scripts that automates detecting OpenStack problems such as configuration issues, conflicts with package versions, and more.
Did you know that the largest gathering of the global OpenStack community is coming to Sydney?
Join the users and developers November 6-8 for the OpenStack Summit Sydney where you can go to hands on workshops, all day intensive trainings, use cases and the Forum where you can get involved in shaping the software whether you’re an operator or developer. We will also be celebrating the Melbourne Cup during the Tuesday afternoon break, featuring a live stream of the iconic Australian horse race, drinks and snacks, and an opportunity to receive a Summit pass and hotel stay at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver next May!
Join hundreds of Stackers from dozens of different countries for the OpenStack Summit. Receive hands on training, hear real OpenStack use cases and learn how you can get more involved in the community. Prices increase in early September, so register now and save!
Do you have an OpenStack or cloud story? Make sure you submit your session for the OpenStack Summit which is coming to Sydney for the first time, November 6-8. The deadline to submit is July 15 at 6:59 UTC, so submit now:
Let's have a Canberra OpenStack meetup to talk through recent progress at the PTG in Denver. Matthew Oliver has also kindly offered to give a talk on Swift.
Come learn about Swift, OpenStack's highly available, scalable, extendable and durable object storage system. Matt will start with a brief primer/101 and then will move into what's new in Pike. Matt's happy to deep dive into elements or off on tangents depending on the audience level or interest.
