Subject: [gpfsug-discuss] SSUG Meet the Devs - Cloud Workshop

Hi everyone,

Back by popular demand! We are holding a UK 'Meet the Developers' event to 
focus on Cloud topics. We are very lucky to have Dean Hildebrand, Master 
Inventor, Cloud Storage Software from IBM over in the UK to lead this session.

Slightly different to the past meet the devs format, this is a cloud workshop 
aimed at looking how Spectrum Scale fits in the world of cloud. Rather than 
being a series of presentations and discussions led by IBM, this workshop aims 
to look at how Spectrum Scale can be used in cloud environments. This will 
include using Spectrum Scale as an infrastructure tool to power private cloud 
deployments. We will also look at the challenges of accessing data from cloud 
deployments and discuss ways in which this might be accomplished.

If you are currently deploying OpenStack on Spectrum Scale, or plan to in the 
near future, then this workshop is for you. Also if you currently have Spectrum 
Scale and are wondering how you might get that data into cloud-enabled 
workloads or are currently doing so, then again you should attend. To ensure 
that the workshop is focused, numbers are limited and we will initially be 
limiting to 2 people per organisation/project/site.

Our topics for the day will include on-premise (private) clouds, on-premise 
self-service (public) clouds, off-premise clouds (Amazon etc.) as well as 
covering technologies including OpenStack, Docker, Kubernetes and security 
requirements around multi-tenancy. We probably don't have all the answers for 
these, but we'd like to understand the requirements and hear people's ideas. 
Please let us know what you would like to discuss when you register.

Arrival is from 10:00 with discussion kicking off from 10:30. The agenda is 
open discussion though we do aim to talk over a number of key topics. We hope 
to have the ever popular (though usually late!) pizza for lunch.

Thursday 20th October 2016 from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM

IT Services, University of Birmingham - Elms Road Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT

Please register for the event in advance: 
 Numbers are limited and we will initially be limiting to 2 people per 

We look forward to seeing you there!
