Our next meetup will be an excellent one led by Avishay Traeger of Stratoscale on Deploying Cinder in Production.
A big thank you to Ravello (http://www.ravellosystems.com) for hosting - pizzas, beers, and all - so come one, come all!
This talk will provide a brief overview of Cinder command flows, present some common error cases and their solutions, discuss HA deployments, as well as a brief look at what Kilo will bring.
