StackScale: How to create an OpenStack powered Service Provider in 30 days.
David Sanchez is a serial entrepreneur and investor who has successfully launched several tech startups: Veloxia Networks, Nervia Group, Simbiotika, and most recently StackScale. With an outstanding technical background and having started a hosting company in the past, David understood the potential of OpenStack immediately. He has played a supportive role in the launch of an OpenStack service in Telefonica and he decided, shortly after that, to create, on his own, a new concept of service provider fully operational and based on OpenStack. The presentation of this use case will cover some of the key decisions he had to face both from a business and a technical perspective, and how he managed to have a company launch and operating within a month.
By Arturo Suárez Co-founder of StackOps Technologies, one of the references in the StartUp ecosystem growing around OpenStack.

OpenStack Quantum - Network as a Service

    The major problem of Cloud is definition and implementation of standards. OpenStack is definitely one of major candidates to fill this position. OpenStack Israel 2012 event clearly demonstrated width and depth of OpenStack open source community (over 400 developers) effort to reach this goal.

  • Yaron S.

    Very extensive coverage. Serious speakers and not too much marketing.

  • Stas O.

    I really enjoyed today, thanks guys for the great time.
    Got some very valuable insights that were well worth the time.

    By the way, if you could put a list of presented products, and their respective resources (web-sites, support groups), that would be great.

    Thanks Guys,

    Thank you for the thorough expositions, and discussion.
    Any chance sharing some of the slides, in particular the ones juxtaposing or mentioning the various (public) clouds?
    I'd just rather not scavenge the Web for it all over.

    It was really interesting,
