Title: Open Cloud, Collapsing the Layers
With Ubuntu, the complexities of cloud computing become simple. This discussion will demystify Open Cloud and demonstrate how the layers of complexity can be collapsed by leveraging Ubuntu. You will be amazed how complex deployment instructions can be stored as charms and reused for consistent service orchestration using Juju. This is what we call DevOps Distilled.
Whether you are looking to build on public clouds like AWS or Rackspace, or create your own private cloud, this session will give you a clear road map on how to get there with Ubuntu.

Our second talk will get started at 8:15 during the second Breakout Session.
Title: Big Data Apps on OpenStack
The massive computing and storage resources that are needed to support big data applications make cloud environments an ideal fit, and more so OpenStack, which is open and is emerging as a standard for both public and private clouds. But managing your big data app is no walk in the park - configuration, orchestration, HA, auto-scaling are all quite hard to do - which is where Cloudify fits in.
