At last week's USENIX LISA we had the opportunity to teach users how to build and manage open source cloud computing environments using open source software at Build a Cloud Day Boston. Our program featured presentations from Chef, CloudStack, Gluster, Puppet and Zenoss. Our next Build an Open Source Cloud Day will be at the Southern California Linux Expo on January 20th, 2011 in Los Angeles. Here are the slides from some of the presentations.
CloudStack Community Manager, David Nalley gave an introduction to CloudStack for delivering infrastructure-as-a-service.
Opscode Technical Evangelist, Sean OMeara gave an introduction to Chef for Server Provisioning and Automation
Zenoss engineer and monitoring ninja, Simon Jakesch, discussed how to use Zenoss Core to manage "cloud infrastructure".
