Ushering in the Open API Economy through HP Cloud Services and OpenStack

Big data. Social. Mobile.  These worldwide trends are sparking new cloud-based businesses, requiring hybrid delivery models and driving innovation around the next generation of open, web-based services development.  This tectonic shift is fueling the need for new developer focused cloud platforms that are powered by business grade capacity and SLAs as well as open services in a secure environment.
In this session Zorawar ‘Biri’ Singh, SVP & GM, HP Cloud Services, will share the company’s full vision behind HP Cloud Services, the advantages of designing the service with OpenStack™ technology at the core and share how the company’s differentiated hybrid delivery model is ensuring development interoperability and workload portability.
He’ll also highlight the public cloud infrastructure, platform services and cloud solutions HP is bringing to market - everything from access to compute and storage within minutes to running and operating web services at scale on a global basis as well as enabling a platform for developers, enterprises and ISVs where they can innovate and leverage a broad marketplace of analytics, tools and services.  On behalf of HP Cloud Services, we hope you’ll join us.

From Blue Skies to Big Deployments

OpenStack has bold ambition: to bring utility computing to the masses. We've certainly succeeded in getting the world's attention; Essex is a milestone release that has attracted major industry players to this project and this event. Next, we need to deliver the robustness, scale and innovation that will turn pilots and prototypes into mission critical infrastructure.

Mark will bring the perspective of lessons learned in Ubuntu, which is itself shifting gears from being a popular prototyping platform to being adopted as core infrastructure in large scale deployments. Practices and processes that build quality, governance and innovation while preserving the flexibility and passion of contributors will be a focus, as will some of the lessons learned from large scale deployments of Ubuntu in government and corporate environments.

OpenStack - The Revolution is Real

This week marks a milestone in the history of open source. Only a few years back, OpenStack was nothing but a twinkle in a few people's eyes. Today, it counts with over 100 companies running OpenStack-based clouds and offering OpenStack-based solutions. Fortune 500 companies are building OpenStack clouds, hedging their IT infrastructure on OpenStack and a whole ecosystem of products and services have emerged. In just one and a half years, OpenStack has emerged and is changing the way companies look at IT. Join John Engates, Rackspace CTO, and Mark Interrante, Vice President of Product for a discussion on the realities of OpenStack-based products and what this means for Rackspace and the industry.
