Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Cloud) is Boring

A session at Fossetcon 2014

Saturday 13th September, 2014

2:40pm to 3:20pm (EST)

Infrastructure-as-a-Service - the great base automation - rapidly successful public clouds like Amazon's EC2 and Google Compute Engine brought this to the masses and inspired many open source projects like Eucalyptus, CloudStack, OpenStack, and OpenNebula. It's important, but turning on and off virtual machines, automating creation and destruction of networks and load balancers; it becomes boring after your 500th VM or network. But it's not IaaS that's exciting, it is what it allows you to do; not the underlying technology.
