Members of the Apache CloudStack project will be demonstrating CloudStack at the Texas Linuxfest in San Antonio, TX.

Joe Brockmeier will be talking about CloudStack during his talk - HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN CLOUD

If you're wondering what all the fuss is about with Cloud Computing, the best way to understand is to run your own. Sounds complicated? It's not as bad as you think. With two computers and the help of free and open source software (including Linux, natch!) you can have your own basic CloudStack cloud in a short time.

We'll cover the basics of CloudStack, what it is, how it works, and how you can get started. The session will walk through the requirements of CloudStack, and the steps of getting a basic installation set up with CentOS.


Citrix supports the open source community via developer support and evangeslism. We have a number of developers and evangelists that participate actively in the open source community in Apache Cloudstack, OpenDaylight, Xen Project and XenServer. We also conduct educational activities via the Build A Cloud events held all over the world.
