OpenStack and the future of the Open Source Cloud – London 15/07/2014

OpenStackThe Open Source Specialist Group  (OSSG) and the Internet Specialist Group are hosting a joint meeting on OpenStack.

The even will take place at the BCS Central London Offices, First Floor, The Davidson Building, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

This event is free to attend for both BCS Members (without buffer; £5 for the buffet) but booking is required.

The event focuses on the emerging cloud solution being developed and distributed via the open source model. Steve Nice will talk about potential use cases, what technology this supersedes and which organisations are already making use of it. With the groundwork laid, he will then cover how we at the BCS can understand the future of Open Source cloud and how that fits into the wider technology landscape. The talk will be finished off with a live demo of the technology as he shows how to build a simple infrastructure with the OpenStack components.
