Midokura is sponsoring our January session and will help us to get after Neutron networking! In addition we have a session on the Open vStorage project. Here are the details:

So what’s the deal with Neutron? A look at the project’s progression from Nova-Network to Neutron and Beyond.We will recall the early stages of Nova-Networking and how the functionality evolved to what is Neutron networking today. We will discuss previous default Neutron plugin implementation issues and current solutions with the now open-source SDN solution, MidoNet.

Presenter: Cynthia Thomas Cynthia (@_techcet_) is a member of the Systems Engineering team at Midokura. She enjoys highlighting the emerging technologies in network virtualization as application needs evolve. Her background in networking hardware spans from Telco, Data Center, and Campus/Enterprise solutions.

Our second session will be led by Wim Provoost, product manager at CloudFounders for the open-source project Open vStorage . During this session Wim will discuss the current status of OpenStack storage projects and give an overview of the new features in Open vStorage 2.0.

Open vStorage is an open-source project with a single focus: offer the fastest Virtual Machine storage for OpenStack. With Open vStorage we have built technology which has the features of high-end SANs (performance, zero-copy snapshots, thin cloning) but is also scale-out and low-cost, like object storage solutions.

Wim Provoost (@wimpers_be). has been with CloudFounders since its inception in 2007. He holds a master degree in computer science engineering and a master degree in economics.
