The first OpenStack Summit this year will take place in Austin (TX, US) from April 25-29, 2016. The "Call for Speakers" period ended some days ago and now the community voting for presentation started and will end 17th February, 11:59 PST (18th February 7:59 UTC / 08:59 CEST). 

I've submitted this time one talk this time:
  • "From Hardware to Application - NFV@OpenStack and Ceph" - This talk will provide insight into NFV cloud specific hardware and data center design, preferred setup and requirements to OpenStack and Ceph and also important design implications and requirements for applications and developers on this platform. 

You can vote, if you are interested to see my talk at the summit, every vote is highly welcome. The full abstract can be found at the voting page.

There is a long list of interesting Ceph related talks, simply use the search field on the voting page. I may provide a list in an additional post later as last time.

OpenStack Summit Austin: Call for Speakers

The next OpenStack Summit will take place in Austin, TX, US from April 25-29, 2016. The Call for Speaker period is still open and will close on February 1st , 2016, 11:59 PM PDT (February 2nd, 08:59 CEST). You can submit your presentations here

The process to submit a session proposal changed a little bit since the last summit. You have to provide more information like "What should attendees expect to learn?", "What is the problem or use case you’re addressing in this session?", "Why should this session be selected?", but also links to former presentations. And you can submit no more than 3 proposals. Personally I have to say: This is really an improvement, especially if this information also ends up in the voting process! 

I myself work currently on a proposal to speak about "From Hardware to Application in a OpenStack and Ceph NFV cloud". I hope we will see many interesting proposals for Ceph related talks!

SUSECon 2015

Back from OpenStack Summit in Tokyo. It was really a interesting conference with many interesting meetings, a lot interesting talks and also events. 

Yesterday I travelled to Amsterdam to attend the SUSECon '15. It's not the same kind of conference like the OpenStack Summit, but it will be interesting to attend. Many - also Ceph and OpenStack related - talks, hands-on, technical tutorials and workshops. And it's a place to meet other customers and discuss about their experiences with OpenStack, Ceph and SUSE.

OpenStack Summit Tokyo 2015

Yesterday I conducted my presentation about "99.999% available OpenStack Cloud - A builder's guide". The room was full. If you could not join, you can find the slide deck on slideshare and the video is also already available online.

If you have been in Tokyo and seen my talk I would really appreciate if you fill out the official feedback form. Feel also free to send me also direct feedback if you like.

The main conference ended also yesterday. Today is the last day of the Mitaka Design Summit with interesting meetings and your chance to participate into the planning for the next OpenStack release.
