Our next Summit destination is in Vancouver. Registration and Hotel booking are now available. Last time we went to Canada, these sold out quick. Don’t miss out and secure yours today.
Congratulations to SuperUser award winners!
On the final day of the Sydney Summit, the Community Contributor Awards gave a special tip of the hat to those who might not know how much they are valued. Read more about the ceremony here.

Superuser articles of interest
Some fantastic Superuser articles have been published in recent weeks. They include tutorials, information about a new working group and project updates.
Launch of Kata Containers
The Foundation is excited to announce Kata Containers. This project unites the security advantages of virtual machines with the speed and manageability of containers for running container management tools directly on bare metal without sacrificing workload isolation. Kata Containers delivers increased performance, faster boot time and cost efficiencies. Kata Containers will have its own governance, community and communication channels.

HPC book update
The Scientific Working Group has updated the Crossroads of Cloud and HPC: OpenStack for Scientific Research. Version 2 of the popular book details multiple enhancements made to OpenStack for HPC workloads over the past year and added several new in-depth case studies on how OpenStack supports radio astronomy, bioinformatics, cancer and genome research and more. Read or order the book at https://www.openstack.org/science/ to find out exactly how OpenStack allows researchers to spend less time managing infrastructure and more time on research that matters.
