Last week, the CloudStack Silicon Valley Users Group held a meetup in Sunnyvale, CA at NetApp. Thank you to Kim White, Ray Mar and NetApp for hosting our group on Thursday evening!
John Kinsella kicked off the night with an introduction of our speaker, Geoff Higginbottom, and a quick reminder about the CloudStack Collaboration Conference Europe held in Budapest, Hungary on November 19-21st, 2014. The schedule is now available. Register now! ApacheCon Europe will be co-located with the CloudStack Collaboration Conference from November 17-21st, 2014.
Our guest speaker for the evening was Geoff Higginbottom, CTO of ShapeBlue Ltd and a leading CloudStack implementation specialist. Geoff has designed numerous Apache CloudStack and Citrix CloudPlatform Cloud Infrastructures, for both Public and Private Cloud use cases. Geoff regularly speaks at the CloudStack European User Group and designed and delivers a very successful CloudStack 2 Day Bootcamp course (which has been delivered around the globe). We were very lucky that Geoff happened to be in the US helping a CloudStack User get their cloud up and running last week. He took time to speak at the CloudStack Silicon Valley User group giving insights on designing CloudStack clouds and answering numerous questions from the attendees!
Geoff started off the meetup with an introduction to CloudStack and gave a live demonstration of the technology.
