Build a Cloud Day was co-located with LISA '13 (Large Installation Systems Administration) this year in Washington D.C. The program was designed to expose attendees to the concepts and best practices around deploying cloud computing infrastructure. Attendees learned how to deploy a cloud computing environment using CloudStack and other cloud infrastructure tools including those from Xen, Puppet Labs, SolidFire, GlusterFS and RiakCS.
The recordings of each presentation are now available for viewing.
Software is eating infrastructure. By pulling reliability and scalability responsibilities up the stack from hardware into software, object stores such as Basho's Riak CS and cloud orchestration platforms such as Apache CloudStack increase the utilization of compute and storage resources by dynamically shifting workloads based on demand. Together, those platforms can saturate compute and storage of 1000s of hosts with strong operational visibility and end-user self-service.
This talk will cover the following topics to explore private cloud design principles and best practices:...
