The July OpenStack L.A. meetup/OpenStack 6th birthday celebration is on! We are extremely fortunate to have Bill Bosari, Lead SE for Datera, as our featured presenter this month.

We'll also be celebrating OpenStack's 6th birthday! There will be great food and drinks (possibly even some bubbly!), and more! We've been asked by the OpenStack Foundation to take lots of pics at the event so that they can be shared on the Foundation's Flickr page. So, be sure to bring your best smiles!

The July meetup is being co-sponsored by Datera and the OpenStack Foundation. We hope that you'll be able to join us on the 28th!

Presentation Abstract:

Project Magnum brings container support to OpenStack. Let's explore containers in OpenStack and what this means for storage.

The use of containers to manage and deploy applications and microservices is growing like wild fire. Containers increase the power Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) and reduce complexity of managing services. As containers see more adoption, come learn how Project Magnum brings container management to OpenStack. The presentation will include a demo of Project Magnum in action running on a Datera-powered OpenStack infrastructure.
