GlusterFsfosdem13

Dear *,

In the case you or your company will be currently evaluating a new or another enterprise-level scale-out NAS file system or if you will be curious about aggregating various storage servers technology then I inform you you will have the opportunity to ask all the questions you have on this topic during FOSDEM’13 – Brussels / 2 & 3 February 2013 – @ the Gluster booth.

For those ones from BeNeLux who will not have to chance to be present and are interested by a Red Hat Enterprise Storage Presentation/Demo/POC then just let me know with a comment to this post and I will arrange a meeting for you.

Enclosed in this post the Wikipedia Gluster definition.

– Explanation coming from Wikipedia > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GlusterFS
GlusterFS is a scale-out NAS file system. It is free software, with some parts licensed under the GNU GPL v3 while others are dual licensed under either GPL v2 or the LGPL v3. It aggregates various storage servers over Ethernet or Infiniband RDMA interconnect into one large parallel network file system. GlusterFS is based on a stackable user space design. It has found a variety of applications including cloud computing, streaming media services, and content delivery networks.

Dear *,

More and less seven years I am involved in projects like Fedora and Jboss.org @ Fosdem.
And finally glad to see Red Hat as one of the main sponsors of that huge EMEA Open Source Community event.
Many thanks for your supports over these years. (Leslie, Developers, and the Red Hat BeNeLux Team).
See you there (IT Professional people or not…). 😉

N.B. :
FOSDEM is a free event that offers open source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate.
It is renowned for being highly developer-oriented and brings together 5000+ geeks from all over the world.

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.

Dear all,

Yesterday, I received a confirmation from the FOSDEM team this year -2012- the opening/closing schedule for devrooms on Saturday will start at 11:00AM and end at at 19:00PM.

The thing is I planned to start session from 13:00PM.

So that means I have still 2 free other one hour -55mins- sessions available.
Well, as I mentioned in one of my previous post I would like to use them to talk about HornetQ and  Gatein/BoxGrider.

So If you are from these communities and  want to submit your talk then feel free to contact me.

Anyway, here are the already the confirmed talks :

-> JBoss AS7 in the Cloud [ OpenShift ] – http://www.jboss.org/openshift

-> Drools Planner – http://www.jboss.org/drools/drools-planner.html

-> Infinispan – http://www.jboss.org/infinispan

-> RHQ – http://www.jboss.org/jopr

-> jBPM/designer and Guvnor. –http://www.jboss.org/jbpmhttp://www.jboss.org/guvnor

-> JBoss Forge and Arquillian.-https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/FORGE/Home  &  http://www.jboss.org/arquillian
