Posted by on in Cloud News

2012 is fast approaching! Before we head into the New Year, one last clouducation post for 2011.

At the end of every year, I reflect on all the things that have helped shape our cloud community. It’s been an incredible time in this space and even more exciting year for CloudStack team. With that, I thought that this post should be focused on Cloud Predictions for 2012.

Thank you for your continued support and making 2011 an exciting year for us. In appreciation of your support- Mark, David and I put together a nice thank you gift and I would like to take this opportunity to share it with you folks (we’ve been practicing this for months!). Have a wonderul holiday season everyone! Enjoy!

Video Series: Networking with CloudStack

Posted by on in CloudStack Tips

Hi everyone!

We had an awesome time at the Silicon Valley Cloud Expo! Thanks to those that visited our CloudStack booth, participated in our sessions and attended our personal lunch and learn.

During the expo, we had a lot of questions and discussions on a variety of aspects around cloud computing and CloudStack. We also had a lot of end-users visiting our booth interested in getting specific information (i.e., how to get started, networking, best practices) to take back home. We took some notes and will be creating various interactive video and sneak peaks series over the next couple of months to shower you with CloudStack goodies.

Just in time for the holidays, we’re treating you to a 7-part series on networking with CloudStack. Over the next few weeks, this series will have our resident CloudStack community “guy? David Nalley and Product Architect Chiradeep Vittal illustrate some of the common network topologies and features that CloudStack supports. They will identify some networking challenges in cloud computing and provide best practices and use cases on how to leverage Cloudstack to overcome them. This video series is a must-see for developers and network/systems architects, or anyone interested in Cloud computing!

Episode 1: Introduction to Network Services with CloudStack
