Bring your perspectives on cloud computing adoption and OpenStack evolution. What piques your interest in the world of cloud computing?


Docker Containers

We will describe our experiences running Docker containers in a multi-node OpenStack environment deployed on public cloud infrastructure. From this we will show DockerCloud, providing IaaS like capabilities for Docker containers as well as container orchestration on OpenStack.

IBM Power Systems In the Cloud

This talk provides an overview of activities in IBM Research to allow IBM Power Systems resources to be consumed using OpenStack tooling and APIs.

Heat and Docker

Heat is an OpenStack service that allows model based management of virtual infrastructure and software. We'll introduce Heat and show its use to manage Dockers containers with high availability.

Advanced data retrieval and analytics with Apache Spark and Swift

The integration between Apache Spark and Swift, and the use of Storlets for smart retrieval via filtering and privacy-support.

Neutron Networking - Service Grouping, Policying and Chaining
