OpenStack User Survey Insights: November 2014

This is the fourth consecutive survey conducted by the User Committee prior to each Summit starting in April 2013 and the previous survey in Atlanta, May 2014. The goals of the survey are to generate insights based on a representative sample of OpenStack users, in order to better understand their organizational profiles, use cases and technology choices across different deployment stages and sizes. These insights are intended to provide feedback to the broader community, and to arm technical leaders and contributors with better data to make decisions.

Wrapping up the Travel Support Program – Kilo

The OpenStack Foundation brought 20 people to Paris for the Summit earlier this month, thanks to the grants offered by the Travel Support Program. We had 22 people accepted in the program from 11 different countries, spanning five continents. Four people traveled from Brazil, four from India, three from Europe and the rest were from South America, North America and South-east Asia. Of the selected recipients, two were unable to attend due to VISA timing issues, but we were excited to welcome the 20 attendees that were able to make the trip. Stay tuned for when we announce the applications for the Travel Support Applications for the May Summit in Vancouver.

A mascot for Ironic

The idea about what the mascot would be was easy because the RAX guys put “bear metal” in their presentation and that totally rocks! So Lucas Alvares Gomes drew a bear.
