Dear all,

Again an interesting talk. This one will be about DeltaCloud API.

Michal Fojtik will be presenting in Virtualization and Cloud Devroom on  Saturday 2012-02-04

15:00-15:25 Open Clouds with Deltacloud API   (room : Chavane)

Here is the abstract :

Start an instance on an internal cloud, then with the same code start another on EC2 or Rackspace. Deltacloud protects your apps from cloud API changes and incompatibilities, so you can concentrate on managing cloud instances the way you want. Deltacloud API prosper from natural open-source evolution and use community driven API design instead of vendor enforced one.

Dear all,

Well, it seems for me this year is a FOSDEM  millesime.

Apparently, there is an interesting talk about Aeolus.

Francesco Vollero will be presenting in Virtualization and Cloud Devroom on  Saturday 2012-02-04

14:00-14:25 the Aeolus Project (room : Chavane)

Here is the abstract :

Aeolus Project is a Red Hat sponsored project released under Apache License. It’s purpose is to help people to have their own solution to manage and create cloud system hybrid and then run their instances on their own in-house infrastructure (VMware vSphere, RHEV, IBM’s Smart Business Cloud, Eucalyptus) and also copy/run/manage their instances in multiple public cloud places (Amazon EC2, Rackspace, GOGrid,etc)

Aeolus does all of the image conversion/transfer/etc automatically, handling everything properly. Aeolus is a single, consistent set of tools to build and manage organized groups of virtual machines across clouds.

Dear all,

BoxGrindier is going to be present @ FOSDEM’12.

Marek Goldmann will be presenting in the JBoss.org dev room on Saturday:

11:00 – 11:55 BoxGrinder : Grind your appliances easily

Here is the abstract :

BoxGrinder is a set of tools that help you grind out appliances: preconfigured disk images with the operating system and requisite software ready to run on a selected virtualization platform. With a simple text definition file and a single command BoxGrinder will build a lean appliance from scratch, convert it to a target format, and deliver it to your chosen infrastructure.

Virtualization has become almost ubiquitous in modern scalable infrastructures, with traditional dedicated hardware setups being replaced by multi-tenanted virtual environments. This change facilitates many of the beneficial properties of Cloud Computing, key amongst which is the ability to create small, function-specific appliances that enables system components to scale independently.

BoxGrinder addresses the key problem of specifying and building such appliances. It manages complexities such as software installation, dependency resolution and remote service interactions on your behalf. Existing methods can an arduously convoluted, with poor repeatability and performance characteristics; wasting time and resulting in slow and bloated appliances.  Such factors negate many of the motivating factors for embracing Cloud computing, and this is an obstacle that BoxGrinder is specifically designed to overcome. Coherent and simple to specify and run; yet fast to build and easily customized to any desired level of complexity.

In this session we will cover the basic concepts of BoxGrinder, with discussion of techniques and use-cases that illustrate how best to utilise BoxGrinder’s powerful feature-set. Finally, we will work through a live example, from text definition to a running virtual appliance.

Dear all,

Yesterday and in addition of the allocated JBoss.org devroom,  I had the confirmation JBoss.org has get a booth @ FOSDEM’12.

So, I can confirm we are going to do several AS7 application deployment demonstrations over the cloud without having to worry about downloading and managing the stack, writing scripts or installing agents in using Openshift.
