Subject: [gpfsug-discuss] SSUG Meet the Devs - Cloud Workshop
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.
IS IT FOR ME?
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.
WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED?
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
