Federated Cloud Ecosystems

The computing needs of today's world are very diverse and a handful of cloud service providers cannot handle these needs. We are seeing an emergence of federated cloud ecosystems with many hosting providers, datacenters and telecom companies transforming to a cloud model. Projects like OpenStack accelerate this evolution. With federation comes the problem of discovery and a marketplace for trading various services. In this talk, I am going to highlight the evolution of federated cloud ecosystems and discuss how we can address the issue of discovery and marketplace.

Swift in the Small

Swift in the Small

Swift can be a great object storage solution for smaller deployments. This talk will discuss the rationale for using a small-scale Swift cluster and strategies for starting with a single storage node and growing into a largecluster. Even at 10's or 100's terrabytes, Swift can be a highly durable storagesystem.This talk was previously presented at a bay-area OpenStack meetup: http://joearnold.com/swift-in-the-small/
