The leading provider of green cloud solutions brings users flexibility, customization, and productivity with Apache CloudStack

Founded in 2010, GreenQloud began their journey with the founders of cloud.com by building a prototype platform for a public cloud. GreenQloud chose to build their platform on top of CloudStack because they found many benefits from a fully open source stack to which they could also contribute. GreenQloud was one of the earliest contributors, and is responsible for CloudStack's Amazon EC2™ compatibility.

Today, GreenQloud offers a full cloud infrastructure software stack for private, public and hybrid IaaS compute and storage all the while leading the path to green IT and sustainability. GreenQloud is a cloud solutions company offering standalone private cloud, hybrid cloud and Truly Green™ public cloud computing virtual servers and data storage (IaaS) powered by renewable energy. GreenQloud's cloud services, feature an easy-to-use, self-service web console and advanced, compatible API controls for full automation of IT services.

With the addition of its newest product, QStack, the company now offers cloud solutions for the full market, accelerating the market adoption of cleaner cloud technology, by addressing the needs and concerns of companies who have not yet adopted public cloud computing due to regulatory compliance or investment commitments.

Last night, the CloudStack Bay Area SF Users Group held a meetup in San Jose, CA at Datapipe. Thank you to Gary Veselka and Datapipe for hosting our group and providing pizza and drinks to keep the CloudStackers going throughout the evening!

John Kinsella kicked off the night with a quick introduction and reminder about the CloudStack Collaboration Conference Europe held in Budapest, Hungary on November 19-21st, 2014. The CfP deadline is June 25th, 2014 so submit your talk today! ApacheCon Europe will be co-located with the CloudStack Collaboration Conference from November 17-21st, 2014.

Our guest speaker, Amogh Vasekar, presented "Moving up the Stack with Stacktician." What is Stacktician? As Amogh put it, "CloudFormation for CloudStack." It is a web interface for template and stack management. Amogh demonstrated the working of the tool and discussed some of the challenges faced while executing pure CloudFormation templates. Click here for the slides. 

On behalf of the organizers (John Kinsella, Animesh Chaturvedi, Ilya Musayef and myself), we want to thank Datapipe for hosting the CloudStack SF Bay Area Users Group and providing a spacious venue for the CloudStackers.

Do you want to attend the next CloudStack meetup in the Bay Area? Become a member of our growing group and join us for pizza, beer and CloudStack talks! Visit: http://www.meetup.com/CloudStack-SF-Bay-Area-Users-Group/events/141814852/
