  • Introduction to OpenStack

    by Eric Day

    The OpenStack project was launched last summer during OSCON by Rackspace, NASA, and a number of other cloud technology leaders in an effort to build a fully-open cloud computing platform. It is a collection of scalable, secure, standards-based projects consisting of compute, storage, images, and more. This session will introduce the projects, the principles behind it, and how to get started.

    At 1:40pm to 2:20pm, Wednesday 27th July

    In Portland 251, Oregon Convention Center

  • Using OpenStack APIs: Present and Future

    by H. Wade Minter and Mike Mayo

    OpenStack started with an ambitious idea – to build a completely open, community driven standard for cloud storage and computing. Based at its core on the Rackspace Cloud Files storage platform and the NASA Nebula compute architecture, OpenStack consists of proven technology that is undergoing integration and development now on a community level. This development includes building and improving the APIs that allow developers to harness the power of the OpenStack technology.

    In this session, you will learn the ins and outs of the OpenStack APIs from developers who have spent time in the trenches building useful projects with them. We will cover the OpenStack Storage API, the current state of the OpenStack Compute API, and the relevant differences between it and the Rackspace Cloud Servers API. You’ll learn tips and tricks, gotchas and workarounds, and have the opportunity to pick some brains.

    We will be going over the API at a high level (primarily looking at JSON requests and responses), and code examples will be in Ruby and Objective C.

    At 4:10pm to 4:50pm, Wednesday 27th July
