Sydney OpenStack Summit - Started


Today the OpenStack Summit started in Sydney with the keynotes. This time the keynotes are only on the first day, which is really nice since it's only a 3 days event - more time for the presentations.

This time I have every day a presentation or panel discussion:

OpenStack Sydney: Turning one into two


Last week I started to update/prepare the slides for my Lightning Talk ("Vanilla vs OpenStack Distributions - Update on Distinctions, Status, and Statistics") at the OpenStack Summit in Sydney (November 6-8, 2017). But then  I have been asked by the Summit Speaker Support to present on the same topic also in a 40 min slot. No problem, but I didn't like to speak twice about the same. I asked to use the Lighning Talk for another topic on Ceph: "Email Storage with Ceph". 

Since they accepted, I will speak in two sessions on different topics. If you are interested, check the schedule. See you in Sydney!

Ceph Meetup Berlin - Followup: librmb


On Monday I presented at the Ceph Meetup in Berlin about a new project sponsored by Deutsche Telekom to store emails on Ceph. The project consists of librmb and rbox. While librmb (librados mailbox) is a generic abstraction layer to store emails in RADOS, rbox is a plugin for Dovecot to make use of the new library.


The code is released under LGPLv2.1 and now available at github. The project is still under heavy development and not in a released state. Therefore the code and APIs can still change, but we really would like to invite every interested party to check it out, test the code and report findings and bugs back to the project. Be part of the project and contribute code! We plan to move the librmb code later to the Ceph project and the rbox plugin to Dovecot. For more information on the project check out the README or take a look at my presentation from the Meetup.

I would like to thank our partners in this project: Tallence, Wido den Hollander (42on.com), and SUSE.
