OW2 PRESENCE IN THE CONFERENCES:
Thanks to the active support of our members from Brazil, OW2 has been able to submit a list of possible presentations.

1) OW2 and open source trends: community presentation, Cédric Thomas, OW2
Abstract:
Founded in January 2007, OW2 is an independent industry community dedicated to developing open source code infrastructure (middleware and generic applications) and to fostering a vibrant community and business ecosystem. In this presentation we highlights the strengths and pitfalls of commercial open source as perceived from the standpoint of the OW2 community , we analyse the role of open source organizations in providing a structure to the open source software industry and we position OW2 in this context. We introduce the five key components of OW2: its code base, its community, its activities, its governance and its financial model. We also describe two main endeavors of the community, the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative (OSCi) and the Software Quality Assurance and Trustworthiness (SQuAT) program. We demonstrate how OW2, more than just a community is an open source business ecosystem platform.

2) OW2 Bonitasoft Technical Presentation, Miguel Koren O'Brien de Lacy, Konsultex
Abstract: Title: OW2 SlapOS, the CompatibleOne project billing platform

My short resume (in portuguese):

Rafael é trabalha na Nexedi SA (França) de 2006, empresa criadora do ERP5 (http://www.erp5.com) e do SlapOS (http://www.slapos.org/). É coordenador da Comunidade ERP5 Br no Portal do Software Público. Desenvolver ativo de diversos projetos opensource (ERP5, Slapos, cloudooo, UNG, buildout). Já participou de alguns projetos de implantações de ERP na Europa e África. Co-autor do capítulo "ERP5: Designing for Maximum Adaptability" do Livro Beautiful Code (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780)

Short resume:

"SlapOS":http://www.slapos.org/ – an OW2 and CompatibleOne project – is probably the first open source Distributed Cloud Operating system of this kind. It is based on a ERP model and provides a simple API which anyone can learn in less than one hour and instantiate any type of software: from NoSQL/SQL databases to ERPs, virtual machine and tens others. Thanks to process allocation optimization and the billing system, any software publisher can become a multi-tenant SaaS or PaaS provider in less than a week, without having to consider huge investments in research and development, and start to charge for your services. This presentation aims to introduce SlapOS, the architecture, early sucessfull cases and the project roadmap.

Complete introduction.

With the increasing adoption of IPv6, 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps fiber to the home and Solid State Disks all over the world, the days of centralized data centers and expensive storage area networks are most likely counted. Instead, a new form of Cloud - massively distributed cloud - can be implemented today to provide Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) with new levels of cost efficiency, drastically reduced environmental impact and high protection of Freedom.

"SlapOS":http://www.slapos.org/ – an OW2 project – is probably the first open source Distributed Cloud Operating system of this kind. It is based on a ERP model and provides a simple API which anyone can learn in less than one hour and instantiate any type of software: SQL database, distributed NoSQL storage, ERP, CRM, e-commerce, wiki, http cache, application server, load balancer, virtual machine. Thanks to process allocation optimization and the billing system, any software publisher can become a multi-tenant SaaS or PaaS provider in less than a week, without having to consider huge investments in research and development, and start to charge for your services.

SlapOS is based on a grid computing daemon called slapgrid which is capable of installing any software on a PC and instantiate any number of processes of potentially infinite duration of any installed software. Slapgrid daemon receives requests from a central scheduler the SlapOS Master which collects back accounting information from each process. SlapOS Master follows an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) model to handle at the same time process allocation optimization and billing.

The CompatibleOne is a collaborative project, funded and supported by French institutions, that identifies, aggregates and integrates leading open source technologies into a rich and comprehensive 'cloudware' stack. CompatibleOne is developing a meta-model-based framework for the abstraction of the configuration, management and integration of these technologies. its outputs will be offered under an OSI compliant open source license and the code distributed via the OW2 Consortium software forge as part of the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative.

This presentation aims to introduce SlapOS Project, the architecture and components involved. I will also introduce early sucessfull cases on BraZil, and the already supported softwares (apache, ERP5, Cloudooo, Wordpress..), some application cases (testbed, continuos integration, distributed cloud setups ...) and the project roadmap.

3) OW2 SlapOS, Jean-Paul Smet, Nexedi

4) Compatible One R&D Project: The Freedom of interoperability above the clouds, by Cédric Thomas, OW2 and Jean-Paul Smet, Nexedi.
Abstract: Compatible One is one of the major R&D Cloud Computing projects in Europe today. Compatible One aims to provide an open "cloudware" for the creation, deployment and management of private, public and hybrid cloud platforms, addressing IaaS, PaaS, SaaS within a global unified solution. The key points of the project are :

  • OPEN: Source code, interfaces, documentation and licensing.
  • COMPATIBLE: with many platforms to provide maximum freedom to users and developers.
  • SCALABLE: offering maximum abstraction of resources and facilitating the creation of applications and services.
Compatible One is a collaborative project comprising both industrial and academic partners.

5) Choreos cooperative project, by Fabio Kon, USP (tbc - CHOReOS talk has been submitted through FISL CFP)
Other possible talks:

  • OW2 ACCORD Project, Neociclo, Rafael Marins (cancelled)
  • JOnAS, Bull
  • Nuxeo
OW2 PRESENCE IN THE EXHIBITION:
In the framework of its role in the CompatibleOne and Choreos collaborative projects dissemination packages, OW2 has booked a booth at the FISL show (booth #52). Of course all OW2 members are invited to take advantage of the booth. We will be situated right next to another OW2 member, the University of Sao Paulo.

About FISL:
Since 2000, and the first edition of the International Free Software Forum (fisl), we have experienced eleven years of hard work, immense collaboration and the involvement of thousands of people who truly believe in free software and the strength of a real sense of community. Thanks to the work and commitment of this increasingly larger and stronger community, we have managed to create the biggest free software event in Latin America.
