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.
