Tomorrow the German OpenStack Days 2016 (Deutsche OpenStack Tage) will start in Cologne. I will give a talk on Ceph and OpenStack about "OpenStack at 99,999% availability with Ceph".
It seems the event is already sold out completely, but as far as I know the presentations (mostly conducted in German) will be recorded and available after the conference. If you have already a ticket, have a interesting OpenStack conference in Cologne!

Today the OpenStack Summit starts in Austin, TX. Sitting right now in the keynote hall with live music and wait for the keynotes to begin. This time my talk wasn't selected. Nevertheless I expect a great summit with numerous interesting sessions and locking forward to meet with other fellows and partners from the OpenStack and Ceph communities.

Today is the second day of the Global OpenStack Bug Smash for the upcoming Mitaka release. I attended to the local meeting here in Nuremberg at the SUSE office.
The last two days I took a look at some cinder bugs that are related to Ceph RBD bug reports and pushed some fixes (e.g. for #1508340 and #1489134).

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.

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!
