Happy Friday everyone. Today The Download takes a look at this week’s OpenStack Summit, which wrapped up on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. A strong contingent of Rackers made the trek halfway across the globe to attend, and a number of exciting developments unfolded while they were there.
It’s almost time, once again, for the OpenStack Summit, a four-day conference for developers, users and administrators of OpenStack cloud software. It’s a great place to get started and keep connected with OpenStack, and this year our international destination is Tokyo.
This year, thousands of OpenStack developers and users of OpenStack will flock to the annual OpenStack Summit, which takes place May 18 through May 22 in Vancouver, Canada. Thousands more submitted speaking proposals, with more than 60 coming from Rackspace specialists.
A lot of the talk at OpenStack Summit Paris this month centered on the current state of OpenStack and its future. As the four-year-old project continues to grow and mature, what will OpenStack look like in five, 10 or 15 years?
At OpenStack Summit Paris, cloud federation – the ability to easily and seamlessly leverage a multi-cloud environment – was a buzz worthy topic. The story of cloud federation was told though a number of sessions: from Tim Bell from CERN’s keynote presentation to several smaller breakouts. Rackspace and CERN openlab are working together to federate OpenStack clouds. The project has already had a number of successes.
OpenStack Summit Paris is just about over. It was a great week. In case you missed it, here’s a roundup of our coverage from the Paris Summit. We’ll see you in Vancouver in May.
Rackspace kicked off OpenStack Summit Paris with the launch of a set of easy to deploy production-ready application stacks for the OpenStack-powered Rackspace Private Cloud. The free solution templates, which include Magento, Drupal, Galera, MongoDB, ELK Stack and Hortonworks HDP, enable you to launch an application stack on your private cloud in minutes instead of months.
For OpenStack to gain wide adoption, it must be easy to use. It has to be manageable and scalable. It cannot be too complex.
At OpenStack Summit Paris, Neutron networking drew a great deal of attention. From several well-attended presentations to daily book signings; there was a buzz around Neutron throughout the Summit.
Among the OpenStack projects getting the most attention here at the OpenStack Summit Paris is the Neutron networking project.
