09:00 - 09:30 Welcome: Joe Brockmeier, Open Source Cloud Computing Evangelist, Citrix

Will kick off the event with a review of the program and short talk on cloud computing.

09:30 - 10:30 Delivering IaaS with CloudStack: David Nalley, Apache CloudStack

Apache CloudStack is arguably one of the most mature, frequently deployed IaaS platforms - having been used in multi-national public clouds, and private clouds scaling to tens of thousands of physical compute nodes, well look at considerations for deploying CloudStack and how to gain the most efficiency from your deployment.

10:30 - 10:45 Break

10:45 - 11:30 Scaling Storage with Ceph: Ross Turk, VP Community at InkTank

Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of failure, and is supported by the Linux kernel. This talk will describe the Ceph architecture, share its design principles, and discuss how it can be part of a cost-effective, reliable cloud stack.

11:30 - 12:15 Deploying Private PaaS with ActiveState Stackato: Diane Mueller, Director Cloud Evangelism, ActiveState

This presentation covers building and deploying a Private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on CloudStack. Diane Mueller, ActiveStates Cloud Evangelist shows how to deploy ActiveStates Stackato, an enterprise-ready multi-lingual Private PaaS that runs on any cloud and supports deploying and managing web & mobile applications in any language including Java, .Net, Python, Perl, PHP Ruby, Node.js, Clojure, Scala and Erlang - to name a few. Using the CloudStack UI, Diane demonstrates how to configure and deploy the PaaS and then shows how easy it is to push a live application in under an hour.

12:15 - 1:30 Lunch

1:30 - 2:15 Scalable Networking in Apache CloudStack: Chiradeep Vittal, Citrix

We will discuss approaches to providing network security and isolation to tenants in a large-scale public cloud. A scale-up solution that uses powerful hardware devices may be suitable in some cases while a scale-out solution that uses a federation of finely tuned firewalls may be more suitable in other cases. Apache CloudStack is flexible enough to provide the cloud operator with solutions at either end of the spectrum.

2:15 - 3:00 Building the App Cloud with BitNami: Erica Brescia, CEO BitRock

This presentation will introduce the BitNami library of applications and tools and explain how you can leverage it to provide your users with one-click deployment of their favorite apps. As cloud deployment becomes mainstream, focus is expanding from infrastructure topics such as high-availability and elasticity to application-level concerns. BitNami makes it easy to deploy and manage popular open source applications so your end-users can take advantage of your bright shiny cloud from day one.

3:00 - 3:15 Break

3:15 - 4:00 Challenges in Supporting Multi-Hypervisors in CloudStack: Kelven Yang, Citrix

Kelven will discuss the CloudStack support for multiple hypervisors in a single cloud. Kelven will discuss the two integration strategies: directly managed hypervisor host clusters and externally managed hypervisor host clusters. He will also describe the challenges to be solved when giving storage volumes first-class citizenship in different hypervisor environments. Kelven will describe how CloudStack-managed HA and hypervisor-native HA and DRS can work together, and how console access is uniformly supported across hypervisors.

4:00 - 4:45 Practice your Cloud-Fu with Scalr: Sebastian Stadil, CEO Scalr

Multi-cloud this! Orchestrate that! In this amazing presentation of Cloud-Fu, Sebastian Stadil, founder of the open source cloud management software Scalr, will demonstrate basic to advanced katas for building applications on the cloud that are resilient to pesky failures.

4:45 - 5:00 Close: Joe Brockmeier, Citrix


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.
