Icehouse, the 9th release of OpenStack, is out! Thanks to the 1200+ contributors. OpenStack Icehouse
With two public cloud services in production, one at Rackspace and another at HP, OpenStack Project Reddwarf (http://wiki.openstack.org/Reddwarf) is increasing the value of both OpenStack and the affiliated project ecosystem. Since the last summit, we've increased community collaboration and accelerated development to make Reddwarf easier to consume and develop, as well as added many new features! Join Rackspace and HP as we discuss the value Reddwarf brings to Openstack, the progress we've made, the challenges we have faced, and our vision for the future. In this session, you will get a chance to hear how Reddwarf simplifies the management and maintenance of database systems in the cloud, understand how you can begin to leverage it, and learn how you can become active in the community.
