April 25-28, 2016 — Are you at OpenStack: Austin? Schedule a meeting! The OpenStack Summit is the place for learning and networking with others in the OpenStack community. Visit Scality at booth C9 to learn how adding the Scality RING to an OpenStack deployment can reduce the number of distinct storage silos under management, thereby reducing storage management overhead and costs associated with running a large-scale cloud environment. Join Scality at one of our four sessions! We’ll be discussing some of the industry’s most interesting topics and update you on the latest news at Scality.
Scality was present at the OpenStack Summit in Tokyo 2015. The OpenStack Summit provides a wide array of persistent storage services, ranging from local data volumes managed by the Cinder API, to object storage via Swift, image storage via Glance, and shared file services through Manila. For OpenStack administrators, this can create a management burden by imposing multiple independent storage silos to provide volume, file and object storage for Nova based application instances.
The OpenStack Summit in Vancouver ended a few days ago. I was fortunate enough to be there with several colleagues from Scality. There were many interesting sessions and I’ve captured the high points below.
Last week the global OpenStack community gathered in the beautiful city of Vancouver (Canada) to celebrate the release of OpenStack Kilo (which Scality recently announced support for), share knowledge, and report experiences in hundreds of technical sessions, as well as to start planning and designing the features that will be part of the next release; dubbed Liberty.
Last week the OpenStack community gathered in Paris, France to celebrate the Juno release of the OpenStack platform, and simultaneously get together to brainstorm and collaborate about the Kilo release, the next cycle. This was the first time I attended an OpenStack Summit and gave quite an impression. The OpenStack community is huge! The sheer amount of companies involved, ranging from small start-ups all around the ecosystem up to the largest IT vendors around (hello HP, IBM, Cisco, RedHat, Intel, Ericsson and so many others!). It amazes me how many companies provide consultancy & training, innovative storage solutions integrations, enhance the.
July 19th – A special date for a special moment: today is the four year anniversary of OpenStack.
New York – October 12, 2012 I have written about this before (here and there), but it seems that there’s a massively important point that is being lost in the midst of all the discussions about Open Source Cloud Stacks being the only way to make the Cloud a true, hegemonical success. And that point is that it’s not.
