As OpenStack has matured, it’s emerged as the weapon of choice for private clouds. Now, in our seventh year as a community, how can we close the gap on missing public cloud features?
Enter Tobias (CityNetwork, Sweden) and Sean (Datacentred, UK), two developers from Europe both working independently at different OpenStack cloud providers. After chatting in Barcelona both realised that they’d essentially been writing the same private code to “plug the gaps” in the OpenStack toolkit in order to make it operable for a public cloud business.
In this talk, they announce the formation of the new Public Cloud Working Group and they share their combined journeys in the hope that we can, as a community, figure out how to make OpenStack the best public cloud toolkit that it can be.
