Oculus for OpenStack Ops (OpenStack Goes 3D)

OpenStack Horizon, command-line clients and API libraries let developers and operators interact directly, indirectly, and automatically with a target cloud. Analytics tools like Stacklight (LMA toolchain) give deeper insight with sophisticated interactive graphics and out-of-band interaction channels like Nagios alerts. Beyond these tools, however, lies a new world of VR-based immersive UX for operations, visualization and collaboration.

In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • Open-source toolchain options for building immersive UX around cloud computing
  • UI widgets, DevOps and dataviz metaphors (from skeuomorphism to … beyond!)
  • The Internet of Things (to Visualize): VR + OpenStack + IoT = Value
  • How to build your own Minority Report-style UI (with no Tom Cruise in it)

And demonstrate a virtual-reality collaborative OpenStack operations environment compatible with Oculus Rift.
