Detailed description of the session here
This session demonstrates open source technologies that enable users and cloud builders develop interoperable and open cloud solutions. Interoperability in the cloud in a key challenge today; avoiding vendor-lock in, making it possible to easily switch from one provider to another are essential concerns of cloud users today. Interoperability means also the possibility to build hybrid environments, to ensure the portability of data from one cloud to another and to easily orchestrate the management of resources across multiple clouds. However there is more than interoperability and openness. Without open source, proprietary vendors could claim interoperability and openness through compliance with standards in a classic inefficient oligopolistic way.
OW2 is one of the most active in the open cloud field and continuously contributes to the promotion of interoperability across cloud platforms. The community supports several complex open source cloud projects. This session will provide guidance and will showcase state-of-the-art projects and success stories, all multicloud-oriented while leveraging the OpenStack platform and all developed within the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative (OSCi).
We are lining up six presentations showcasing OW2 open source projects and their cloud deployments.
In this track, seasoned open source practitioners will share real life experience in developing open source projects and running open source communities. Participants in this track will end up with a solid background in how open source works. Topics covered in depth include how to contribute to an open source project, how to reconcile open source values with business necessities, what makes a project successful, how to grow a community, how to measure it, etc. All presentations are pragmatic, to the point and provide valuable lessons and guidance to attendees.
