Intro to OpenStack
Speaker: Cody Somerville
OpenStack is open source software for building private and public clouds. Originally launched by RackSpace in collaboration with NASA in July 2010, OpenStack has since won support across the IT industry from users, developers, cloud providers, and vendors from around the world.
Learn what cloud computing is, how it is revolutionizing the way we innovate, and how-to deploy your own OpenStack cloud in minutes.
Cody will demonstrate how to deploy the OpenStack development environment in a virtual machine. If you'd like to follow along on your own computer, have a clean install of Ubuntu Server 12.04 or Fedora 16 in a VM ready in advance.
