In this session, we will quickly run through the Summit schedule, highlights, housekeeping items and logistics. It will also introduce the Active Technical Contributors to the Design Summit working sessions, which will run Monday - Thursday.
The keynote presentations will be Tuesday and Wednesday morning, starting at 9 am.
OpenStack is more than just software, it's a community and platform ecosystem. In this session, Jonathan and special guests will cover the forces that impact platform success, as well as the latest stats and upates on the community front.
Come early - you won't want to miss the first few minutes!
Over the past three years, interest in OpenStack has evolved from developers to early adopters and users. Business users are now running OpenStack to meet real business needs. The more they work with OpenStack, the more they ask for new features and configurations. Some are even contributing code back to the community. In this keynote, Rackspace SVP and GM Jim Curry teams up with HubSpot CIO Jim O'Neill to present HubSpot's journey into OpenStack and the business advantages it has produced.
HubSpot is an all-in-one marketing Software as-a-Service set of solutions that includes blogging, analytics, social media, email, automation, keyword research functions and more. The company serves more than 8,600 companies in 56 countries worldwide.
Find out why HubSpot loves OpenStack and see their live demo as an OpenStack user take center stage.
Brian will talk about why Red Hat gravitated to OpenStack, and how we are committed to bringing a community to subscription model around the technology that aims to redefine IT.
In this session, we will hear directly from NSA and CERN about how research and government organizations are benefitting from OpenStack. Mark Collier will make a brief introduction, followed by two presentations from an NSA cloud architect and physicist at the University of Victoria:
OpenStack at the National Security Agency (NSA)
Speaker: Nathanael Burton, NSA
What does "cloud" mean at NSA and a discussion of how OpenStack fits into the NSA ecosystem. How a small team drove massive process and efficiency change to become one of the NSA's largest hosting platforms. Fostering an environment where creativity and development risk are balanced within the bounds of existing enterprise processes and priorities. Methods for avoiding the "tragedy of the commons".
Clouds in High Energy Physics
Speaker: Randall Sobie, Institute of Particle Physics and University of Victoria
The presentation will describe the motivation for using cloud computing in high energy physics research. In particular, the talk will focus on the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) located at the CERN LCEaboratory in Geneva which recently found evidence for the Higgs boson. We will highlight the challenge of analyzing the LHC data using computing resources distributed around the world. We will show that clouds can be used in a number of ways in high energy physics and describe our experiences in this rapidly changing field of computing.
OpenStack has won support across the IT industry from users, developers, cloud providers, and vendors from around the world. The OpenStack community has delivered incredible innovation, and demand for more innovation, performance, and quality is accelerating. As the only vendor-neutral open source community for cloud, OpenStack is gaining rapid momentum and Hewlett Packard is contributing as one of the few vendors who are delivering generally available enterprise solutions on top of OpenStack today. Join Saar Gillai, SVP and General Manager of HP Converged Cloud, to learn about HP’s journey with OpenStack and how OpenStack could evolve to help accelerate cloud innovation.
OpenStack on Ubuntu is now a production cloud infrastructure in telco, service provider and enterprise settings. While the pace of innovation continues to accelerate at the edge, core functions have matured, and we can share insights and operational experience gained from standing up and supporting those platforms. Mark Shuttleworth will discuss OpenStack production challenges and solutions for telco’s and service provider customers and chart the course for an expanding network of partners and solution providers who are collaborating around Ubuntu to accelerate cloud services.
