Plenty of activity today at the Design Summit as the Document Sprint got underway as well as completion of the final blueprint discussions in the technical track. There were also plenty of new blog postings on the summit to share:

Between partnering meetings, I bounced through a biz and tech sessions during Day 2 of the OpenStack conference (day 1 notes). After my wordy impression summary, I’m including some succinct impressions, pictures, and copies of presentations by my Dell team-mate Greg Althaus.

Programmer Thoughts – http://programmerthoughts.com/programming/features-i-would-like-to-see-in-swift/
Swift is a great way to store large amounts of data cheaply. This week I’m at the OpenStack design summit, and I’ve been thinking of features I would like to see added to swift.

Another great day at the OpenStack Design Summit in beautiful San Antonio, Texas.
Here are some of the highlights:

* A lot of great business and technical discussions including details around the upcoming Bexar release. Important discussions around brand, trademarking, governance, and use cases.

DataCave – http://www.thedatacave.com/cloud/openstack-a-game-changer-for-the-cloud
When the OpenStack framework was announced a few months ago, a lot of opinion was spread regarding its mission and viability. Until that point, cloud software had, for the most part, been proprietary closed-source options available only as a service. While open-source options, like Eucalyptus, were already available to provide software to build your own cloud – the OpenStack project was more of a holistic project – initiated by Rackspace – as a community project to rally around build-your-own-cloud.

Zenoss Blog – http://community.zenoss.org/blogs/zenossblog/2010/11/11/building-the-open-cloud-with-openstack
While at the Openstack design summit this week, I had a chance to sit down with Stephen Spector, Openstack Community manager. Stephen was happy to record a quick video with me to introduce the summit and Openstack in general.

OpenStack Design Summit Day 2

November 10th, 2010 — 6:00pm

OpenStack Summit - opening talks

Day 2 of the Design Summit is over with some great technical and business sessions as well as plenty of hallway discussions. Here are some blogs about the Design Summit that I wanted to share:

Rob Hirschfeld’s Blog : OpenStack Bexar Design Summit Day 1

Yesterday, Dell sent me to be part of our OpenStack vanguard for the design summit. The conference is fascinating and productive for the content of the sessions and even more interesting for the hallway meetings. More

Barton George Blog:
Talking to NASA CTO about OpenStack Cloud Platform

One of the featured speakers during the kick off of the OpenStack design summit yesterday was NASA CTO of IT, Chris Kemp. OpenStack is an open source cloud platform and the compute side of the project is based on code from NASA’s Nebula cloud. More

Barton George Blog: Accenture’s thoughts on the OpenStack Cloud Platform

Another of yesterday’s featured speakers at the OpenStack design summit was Accenture partner, Joe Tobolski. Joe is part of Accenture labs which looks at emerging technologies and he is responsible for assets and architecture as part of Accenture’s global cloud program. More

Finally, all Business Track and General Sessions presentations and videos will be made public on the OpenStack website by the end of next week. In the meantime, I have started to load all the presentations that I have received on the OpenStack Design Summit event SlideShare site. I am working with the technical team to also ensure that all Etherpad notes from the Technical tracks are made public and will provide links when they are organized and ready for public access.
