Open Source Private Clouds with CloudStack, Eucalyptus and OpenStack

Joe Brockmeier, Greg DeKoenigsberg and Mark Atwood
- on -
Open Source Private Clouds with CloudStack, Eucalyptus and OpenStack

Note: We will be starting a little early and going later than usual. (About 2.5 hours) Please try to come a little early as we will be starting on schedule and moving right into the presentations. We are also asking if attendees can hold their questions for the panel session. RSVP will open February 28, 2013 Thursday 6:15pm.


As cloud computing has become more than a passing fad, enterprises large and small, have found a need to build their own in-house “private” IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) clouds. Navigating which technologies to use to build these clouds, can be a challenge, as a handful of Open Source software platforms have come to prominence, and may seem very similar to the uninitiated. 

We are honored to have speakers from all three leading Open Source IaaS platforms, CloudStack, Eucalyptus and OpenStack, to help us understand their platforms. Each speaker will give a quick 30-40 minute overview of their project, including history, strengths, ideal use cases and future direction. After each speaker has had a chance to talk about their project, we will host a panel session, opening up questions to the audience.

    I'd like to contribute to Open Stack, it was the project that got the most of my interest. Partly due variously to its open-sourceness, python-useness, and speaker-Stallman-resemblanceness. (Boy, writing parallel can get *awkward.*)

      (But it optimizes calculations for my multi-core brain.)

    If your are intrested in learning more about CloudStack, please join CloudStack NYC User Group, we are planning to have a first session next month. All of our sessions will be hands on demo on how to make CS work in your environment, from basic to advanced. http://www.meetup.com/CloudStack-NYC-User-Group/

    Good presentation + great overviews, nice breakdown on the pros && cons of each system.

    March 14, 2013

  • Steve K.

    A decent presentation on Cloudstack, a somewhat better one on Eucalyptus, and an even better one than that on Openstack. The latter two presenters did a better job of explaining the product architectures and perceived technical strengths. Block diagrams FTW! All in all, informative and worthwhile presentations from the representatives of each of the three projects. Thanks, fellows.
