OpenStack® Silicon Valley is Next Week – Lots of HP Helion Activity




As I blogged recently, the HP Helion team is pleased to sponsor the OpenStack® Silicon Valley event on Sept 16 in Mountain View, CA. Here is more information about the HP Helion activities at the event and ways to follow the event remotely should you not happen to be in Mountain View.


On-Site Sessions

9:10 – 9:30 Keynote

Is OpenStack ready for the Enterprise?

Martin Fink, EVP and CTO, HP

Open source won the Internet. And now, open source will win the cloud too, with OpenStack Technology leading the charge. Open source industry veteran, Martin Fink, will talk about why OpenStack is primed for the Enterprise, and how organizations can achieve stability, interoperability, and scalability in in an increasingly complex IT environment.


11:25 – 11:30 Lighting Talk

Bill Franklin, VP OpenStack and Technology Enablement, HP


Agile Deployment Track                Chair: Monty Taylor, HP

2:00 – 2:45 Deployment Approach

Includes Monty Taylor, HP

The first session of this track starts with basic questions about about deployment tooling and the architectural approach to bootstrapping a large-scale datacenter hosting OpenStack clouds. We’ll look at image-based bootstrapping choices like Crowbar (the first open source OpenStack-focused deployment framework) and TripleO (OpenStack on OpenStack). We’ll compare these with and script-based bootstrapping options like Puppet and Chef. If you want to understand the basic differences between these deployment approaches, this session is designed to tell you what you need to know.


The HP Helion team is also hosting a booth all day so be sure to stop by, checkout our latest OpenStack solutions and talk with our developers. Besides having our experts at the booth, we will also have cool SWAG.


Remote Engagement

I am unsure if the talks are being live streamed but will be live tweeting all HP sessions listed above from @hphelioncloud and creating a video recording that will be posted on the HP Helion YouTube page during the day. Please engage with our team via Twitter throughout the day as many of our HP Helion leaders will also be tweeting with the event hashtag, #OpenStackSV.
