I’m excited about what the upcoming Atlanta OpenStack Summit is going to bring, especially for those of us running clouds.
Once again, we’ve got an Operations track in the main conference. It’s bigger than ever, running Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday — and, the sessions were selected by individuals with some serious ops credentials (as opposed to say, our vendor friends). “Training your cluster to take care of itself and let you eat dinner in peace“, “because AD != LDAP“, and “Cinder on Ceph War Stories” are some of the sessions I’m looking forward to.
Throughout the week, there’s also specific presentations on Security, Compute, Networking and Storage, but today we’re excited to highlight a brand new section: the Ops Meetup.
People who run clouds need to have a place to congregate at the Summit and swap best practices, architectures, ideas and give feedback – this is the Ops Meetup. Essentially, all of the sessions are designed to be full-room discussions: there will be no presenters and salient notes will be collaboratively recorded on Etherpads, just like in the Design Summit.
So, if you’re running a cloud and you want to actively engage in serious and not-so-serious discussion with like-minded folks, register for the summit, then turn up Monday and Friday to room B308 in Atlanta! You might even make OpenStack better in the process.
Until then, may your MTUs match, expired tokens be few, and your message queues be clean. See you at the Summit!
