AGENDA & SPEAKERS
Fast, automated landscape provisioning based on CloudStack, Ingo Jochim & Andre
Ingo and Andre will talk about their experiences deploying CloudStack as a
platform for fast and flexible SAP system provisioning. Focused on relevant
examples, they will highlight lessons learnt, technologies used and integration
Application Supply Chain Automation (AsA) by Govind Rangasamy.
Organizations today are struggling to transform their mission critical systems
into hyper-scale and highly available services, while also accelerating new
application rollouts. Enterprises and MSPs rely on Appranix's AsA to accelerate
application delivery and eliminate waste by composing, automating and operating
applications with data fabric and cloud services along the application supply
chain. Govind will talk about how CloudStack customers can take advantage of
this unique approach and technology in details.
Building an Infrastructure as a Service for Voice platform, Len Bellemore &
Tulio de Souza.
As a major Mitel phone system integrator and reseller, we wanted to host
Unified Communications platforms in a pay-as-you-go consumption model. We
chose Cloudstack, and transformed our IaaS cloud into an IaaS for Voice
platform integrated into our Core Network. With a custom UI, that calls the
Cloudstack API, we have reduced deployment times, as well as the number of
engineers involved in a phone system deployment. We'll talk about some of the
challenges, wins, and how this very successful project has made us fall in love
with Cloudstack again.
Creating a native Containers as a Service (CaaS) offering on CloudStack, Paul
Cloud native applications running in containerised environments look set to
create a paradigm shift in the way compute resources are consumed. However,
this presents challenges (both technical and business) to Cloud Service
providers who have already invested heavily in Infrastructure as a Service
offerings based on the virtual machine model. Paul will discuss these
challenges, look at the services that end-users will demand in a containerised
world and how major public cloud providers have overcome these challenges. He
will then preview an exciting new project that gives a simple method for
operators to deploy Containers as a Service to their end-users, based on Apache
