Migrating from Amazon AWS to OpenStack - Steve Curry, Metacloud
Companies large and small are enjoying the agility and ease of use provided by the public cloud. But these benefits do come with drawbacks, and the biggest may be cost. For both large enterprises and SMEs, the public cloud can be startlingly expensive at scale. For companies experiencing rapid growth, every day they grow their usage of public cloud resources brings them one day closer to a call from the CFO regarding another rapid growth...operating expense.

In this presentation Steve Curry will go over a case study featuring a rapidly growing and large consumer of Amazon AWS who was feeling the pain and costs associated with running entirely in the public cloud. This customer found not only found economies of scale in an OpenStack-based private cloud, but also feature parity, ease of use, and self-provisioning capabilities that made the value of on premise private cloud clear.

Empowering Your Corporate OSS Developers - Jono Bacon, XPRIZE; Karl Fogel; Leslie Hawthorn, Elasticsearch; Karsten Wade, Red Hat; Moderated by Guy Martin, Samsung
Most companies are consuming open source, but are now also hiring developers to work on open source projects that are the basis of their products. This makes sense, since having input to strategic direction in key projects is critical to innovation and business continuity. However, large organizations still struggle with cultural and procedural barriers to effective collaboration with these community projects. This panel features some of the best-known experts in the open source community discussing how you attract key open source developers to your organization, as well as 'grow' new contributors internally through adjustments to your culture and processes. The panel is moderated by Guy Martin (Senior Open Source Strategist, Samsung), with Jono Bacon (Senior Director of Community, XPRIZE), Karsten Wade (CentOS Engineering Manager, Red Hat), Karl Fogel (Community Author, Developer, Consultant) & Leslie Hawthorn (Community Manager, Elasticsearch).

Open Source in Storage: Is It Here To Stay - Nithya Ruff, SanDisk

There was an important article in Forbes late last year asking the question “why has open source not taken over Storage”.  The article went on to say that Open Source was more computer science than engineering that was needed to support mission critical storage. Nithya will take a deeper look at the transformation that is happening in storage and examine the question of the role of open source in storage. She will also look at the drivers driving growth and adoption of open source in storage as well as the state of open source supply. Cover OpenStack, Object Storage, and Cloud Storage where Open Source is here to stay and address how the collaboration between commercial companies and open source and the role that consortium has played to create a datacenter ready open source.

Migration Strategies from vSphere to Linux and OpenStack via a shared virtualized network - Dan Conde, Midokura
In this talk, Dan Conde will explore ways in which users who are considering migrating from a vSphere virtualization environment to a Linux and OpenStack-based environment can create a gradual migration strategy that enables co-existence of workloads in both environments with a gradual switchover, as opposed to an abrupt rip-and-replace conversion. Dan will examine ways in which a virtualized network environment can be used to develop both isolated and shared network segments to both environments to enable a smooth migration.

Troubleshooting as a Service - Sagi Brody, Webair Internet
As the standardized offerings for hosting and cloud providers become more complex and interdependent, so too do the requirements to properly manage and troubleshoot them. The ability for technical teams to quickly localize bottlenecks, capacity limits, application issues, and other problems is now a key factor for a provider’s success. Whereas troubleshooting was considered a soft skill in the past, hosters must acknowledge and nourish the importance of this most important ability.
