Presentations:

Irving Cordova, Eucalyptus + Ansible

As described in its website, Eucalyptus is open source private cloud software that is compatible with AWS. This talk will describe how to use Ansible to deploy applications in an Eucalyptus based cloud. It will first describe why Ansible is a good choice for an Eucalyptus environment over similar solutions like Chef. It will then describe the small adaptations that are necessary to make Ansible work successfully with an Eucalyptus cloud. The adaptations will be illustrated with specific code showing how they were implemented and also with a small demo. Finally, the talk will discuss things to keep in mind in an Eucalyptus environment and it will conclude with improvements that can be done to the adaptations

Tony Beckham, Eucalyptus + CloudFormation + Ansible
