OpenStack Python and the Holy Grail: A New Proposal for Image Portability

We've all heard it: portability, federation, interconnected. The Holy Grail of the open cloud movement is arguably compute instance portability, but it may be possible to port virtual machine images now. While open source tools exist to covert raw VM disk images, image portability may be best achieved by OpenStack providers by adopting some common bootstrapping and data transfer patterns. In this session, John Garbutt and Brian Rosmaita from Rackspace will explore what that may entail. And there will be much rejoicing.
