Blurb: (see link for full description):As cloud computing has become more than a passing fad, enterpriseslarge and small, have found a need to build their own in-house“private” IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) clouds. Navigating whichtechnologies to use to build these clouds, can be a challenge, as ahandful of Open Source software platforms have come to prominence, andmay seem very similar to the uninitiated.

We are honored to have speakers from all three leading Open SourceIaaS platforms, CloudStack, Eucalyptus and OpenStack, to help usunderstand their platforms. Each speaker will give a quick 30-40minute overview of their project, including history, strengths, idealuse cases and future direction. After each speaker has had a chance totalk about their project, we will host a panel session, opening upquestions to the audience.

#2
----

On March 20th "The Debian Project Leader on 'Debian, 20 years andcounting'" This will be the first time Zack has given this talk inNorth America, and we are lucky that he is taking the time to swingthrough NYC on his way to LibrePlanet in Cambridge.

RSVP will open March 6, 2013 Wednesday 4:00pm.

Blurb: (see link for full description):Debian is one of the eldest Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)distribution in existence. The project has been founded in 1993 to further Free Software distribution and is still doing so in an purely community-driven way. The Debian Project and distribution are bothmade by volunteers who employ a dual "do-ocratic" (a form ofmeritocracy based on the outcome of individual work) and democratic model to make decisions and drive Debian toward its goals. The uniqueness of Debian is manifest in its Free Software values, independence from commercial interests, and in its importance as the basis of a huge ecosystem of several hundreds derived FOSS distributions, which includes today's most popular ones.


In this talk we will present the Debian Project and distribution, discuss its unique traits, as well explain how to join the Project and contribute to it.

Thanks,
Brian
