A recap from BACD Paris

Posted by on in Cloud News

On June 19th we had a Build a Cloud Day in Paris, 60 of us gathered to learn about Apache CloudStack and ear from CloudStack users, integrators and ecosystem partners. We had four great sponsors that helped make the event possible: iKoula a public cloud provider in Paris, Usharesoft a software provider, Apalia a CloudStack integrator and editor of Amysta a CloudStack usage and metering plugin and OW2 an open source consortium. I finally got all the slides and I embed them in this post for your enjoyment. The day started with an intro about BACD and a presentation of the various talks that we were going to have. I talked about the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and showed how several Apache projects could be used to build a complete cloud infrastructure.

Ikoula followed with a presentation on how to use CloudStack to build a public cloud. Public clouds are the natural evolution of traditional hosting providers, ikoula offers several cloud services based on a default CloudStack install. With 1,000 servers and approximately 8,000 Virtual machines in the cloud it is a perfect example of a public cloud in production with CloudStack. In the afternoon, Joaqium Dos Santos gave an introductory demo on the CloudStack API and CloudMonkey.

This coming Sunday (June 23rd) we’ll be getting together at the CloudStack Collaboration Conference for hack day, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Santa Clara Convention Center.

The hack day is being run using the BarCamp/unconference format – meaning that the sessions will be chosen Sunday by the folks who show up. Sessions might run an hour or all day, depending on how much interest there is and how much needs to be done.

Have an idea for a session? A topic you want to lead or see discussed? Add it to the Hack Day at CCC13 page on the CloudStack Wiki. It is, of course, a wiki: so edit boldly!

Don’t let the “hack day” moniker fool you – non-development topics and sessions are more than welcome. Giles Sirett has proposed a marketing session, and we’ll likely have at least one documentation session as well. If it’s CloudStack-related, it’s fair game.

Pleased to see that we’ve got a pretty good selection of sessions already proposed, but we can always do with more. If you have an idea, put ‘er up and show up Sunday ready to jam with the rest of the CloudStack community!

Build a Cloud Day Interview with Brian Proffitt

Posted by on in Events

build-a-cloud-dayToday, we continue our series of Build a Cloud Day interviews with Brian Proffitt, a man who needs no introduction if you’ve been reading about technology in the past decade or more. Brian has written for a long string of publications, most recently ReadWriteWeb and ITWorld.

Brian will be speaking later this week in Columbus, Ohio at the Build A Cloud Day ahead of Ohio LinuxFest 2012. If you’re in or around Columbus, be sure to sign up for a seat today and join us on Friday!

Q: Can you tell us a bit about your background, and what your interest is in cloud computing?

Brian Proffitt: I was born in a small Indiana town… wait, too much? Okay, okay, let’s try the short version: I am a veteran technology journalist and analyst with a strong interest in open source software. That’s a pretty strong connection to cloud computing right there, since much of the cloud technology in use today is or has roots in open source tech. For me, cloud computing ins one of the coolest implementations of Linux and open source technology.

Q: What will you be speaking about at Build a Cloud Day?
