SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – April 22, 2014 – Eucalyptus Systems, the leading provider of open source software for building AWS-compatible private and hybrid clouds, today announced its participation at several upcoming industry events. Eucalyptus will speak at The Open Source Startup Summit, Computerworld’s Open Business Conference, Cloud DevCon, and GigaOM Structure on developments and trends in open source software and cloud computing.
The Open Source Startup Summit, Presented by Bain Capital Ventures
When: Tues., April 22, 2014
Where: 111 Minna St, San Francisco, CA
Details: CEO Marten Mickos will speak about the many successes and challenges he has faced in the open source industry. Listen in as Marten explores the subtle nuances of building open-source companies based on his experience at MYSQL and Eucalyptus, and answers pressing questions about the future of open source.
Computerworld’s Open Business Conference
When: Tues., May 6, 2014 at 1:15 p.m. to 1:40 p.m.
Where: Palace Hotel, 2 New Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA
Details: Much of the promise of cloud computing rings false if workloads can’t move between clouds. CEO Marten Mickos will discuss this topic in his session, “Workload Mobility in Cloud Environments.” A successful cloud deployment strategy will scan for lock-in not only at the code level, but also at the API level. If your cloud can’t connect to the industry’s most widely used cloud platform, AWS, is it really open? This session will address how to think about openness in cloud computing, leaving your workloads free to roam across clouds.
When: Thurs., June 19, 2014 at 4:45 p.m.
Where: Mission Bay Conference Center, 1675 Owens St, San Francisco, CA
Details: A refresh of 2012’s panel is scheduled for this year’s GigaOM Structure. The “Open-source Cloud Panel,” includes Chris Kemp (representing OpenStack), Sameer Dholakia (CloudStack), and Marten Mickos (Eucalyptus), who will face off to answer a singular question: “Does the world really need a handful of different open source clouds?” Based on the 2012 panel, these participants will surely spark a great debate at this year’s event!
When: June 23-25, 2014
Where: Hyatt Regency, 1333 Bayshore Highway, Burlingame, CA
Details: Join Greg DeKoenigsberg, vice president of community at Eucalyptus, for his session, “Managing development environments from laptop to cloud with Vagrant.” It's now straightforward to run nearly identical compute environments -- from development on your laptop, all the way through production in the cloud -- if you know the tools and techniques. In this session, Greg will cover the techniques for building a development environment locally using Vagrant, sharing that environment with a development team, and managing that environment all the way through testing and production on AWS/Eucalyptus.
