Recap: OpenStack Meetup Apr 26

About a month ago, LA had its third OpenStack™ Meetup, “This Calls for Essex-y Party”.  The atmosphere was electric and the air was thick with love – love for OpenStack and burritos.

It could have been that many of us were still flying high from the OpenStack Summit/Conference that occurred the week before.  It could have been that we were excited for the Essex release that dropped in early April.  Or perhaps it was our anticipation for the future of OpenStack – code-named Folsom.  Whatever the reason, we were all on cloud nine.

With our bellies full of big fat burritos and a couple of Mexican beers, we kicked off the fiesta with a presentation from Sean Roberts, who is in charge of Infrastructure Strategy atYahoo!.  DreamHost’s Cloud Architect, Carl Perry, anchored the Meetup with the second presentation.  For your eyeball and earball pleasure, I’ve included the videos below with a brief description of what was covered.

 

 

 

Sean presented on the recently released Essex version of OpenStack, and talked about the future of Folsom. He also touched upon the newly formed OpenStack Foundation.  (I experimented with a wireless mic and failed at capturing almost half of the Q/A. Lesson learned.)

Carl discussed how to deploy OpenStack as the basis for a public IaaS product. He shared his tips and tricks to overcome the common challenges including networking, storage, monitoring, and automation. Stick around to the end for a great in-depth technical Q&A.

DreamHost was generous enough to facilitate, host and sponsor last month’s OpenStack LA event.  It was well attended with over 50 Stackers present.  Tonight, we look forward to our fourth OpenStack Meetup that will be hosted by AT&T, and co-sponsored by AT&T and Inktank.  “The Return of the Ceph Lords” will feature the legendary Josh Durgin, and the inimitable Christopher MacGown.

OpenStack in Production – Event Highlights

As a matter of tradition at this point, we offer a photo report, covering OpenStack event series that Mirantis hosts. Our December 14th event focused on sharing experience around running OpenStack in production. I moderated a panel consisting of Ken Pepple – director of cloud development at Internap, Ray O’Brian – CTO of IT at NASA and Rodrigo Benzaquen – R&D director at MercadoLibre.

This time we went all out and even recorded the video of the event: http://vimeo.com/33982906

For those that are not in the mood to watch this 50 minute panel video, here is a quick photo report:


We served wine and beer with pizza, salad and deserts…


…While people ate, drank, and mingled…


…and then they drank some more…


We started the panel with myself saying smart stuff about OpenStack. After the intro we kicked off with questions to the panel.


The panelists talked…


…and talked…


…and then talked some more.


Meanwhile, the audience listened…


…and listened.


Everyone in our US team was sporting these OpenStack shirts.


At the end we gave out 5 signed copies of “Deploying OpenStack” books, written by one of our panelists – Ken Pepple. Roman (pictured above) did not get a copy.

OpenStack Birthday Videos

Over the last few weeks many OpenStack community members have sent me videos celebrating the first birthday of OpenStack. I plan to show these videos at the OpenStack booth at OSCON this week and I also want to share them with the community via this blog. Rather than post all at once, I plan to release them periodically on the blog. To get things going, I am staring with an amazing video from Robert Jamail at Rackspace who is a talented artist as you will see:
