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 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 *,

I am going to do “Open the Code to Students” presentation @ Louvain-li-Nux, Louvain-la-Neuve, the 20th of October 2011.
That one will take place at Auditoire SCES 03, Place des Sciences, 2 – Louvain-la-Neuve.

During this presentation, I will address the major open source projects adopted in business, but also projects that could be used by students daily.
Finally, I will explain the interest that everyone have to contribute.

BTW, this presentation will be in French.
