The Open Cloud

A session at Open Source Bridge 2011

Wednesday 22nd June, 2011

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

In this session you'll see how open source is the cutting edge of Cloud. I'll show you Open Stack: a collection of open source technologies to deliver a cloud operating system. OpenStack has developed two interrelated projects: OpenStack Compute and OpenStack Object Storage.

  • OpenStack Compute provisions and manages large groups of virtual private servers, and
  • OpenStack Object Storage creates redundant, scalable object storage.

In this session I'll demonstrate:

  • The components of Open Stack Compute and Storage
  • Open Stack architecture and security, and
  • How to use it including a Puppet-driven demonstration of installing Open Stack, building a web tier cloud and installing an application during the session.

In conjunction with the session the tools, Puppet code and documentation used to create the cloud will be available under a GPLv2 license.
