ICCLab organized the 9th Swiss OpenStack UG meetup yesterday (5th March 2015) evening. With over 90 participants and 6 interesting talks, I can say the event was interesting and a success. And some good beer and great pizza added to the glory!

We had 6 talks in total, split into 2 sessions around the 30 mins food and drinks break. The agenda was,

3 presentations in the 1st session (20 mins each)

  1. Florian Haas from Hastexo on “Ceph Performance Demystified: Benchmarks, Tools, and the Metrics that Matter”
  2. Our own Sean Murphy and his team (Bruno and Vojtech) from ZHAW on “Making OpenStack more energy efficient”, including an interesting demo introducing the web app AEM – Arcus Energy Monitoring Tool  from Bruno.IMG_0359
  3. Alexander Gabert from Midokura on “OpenStack, Network Virtualization overlays”

Then a 30 mins break for food and drinks

And then again 3 presentations in the 2nd session (20 mins each)

  1. Theodor Basler from Nimble Storage on “Nimble Storage next Generation Adaptive Flash Platform”
  2. Simon Leinen from SWITCH on “SCALE/SWITCHengines – IaaS for the Swiss academic community”
  3. Marton Kiss, OpenStack Ambassador on “Experiences of OpenStack Contribution Process”

A big thanks to Nimble Storage to sponsor the food and drinks and big thanks to SWITCH for hosting the event in their premises! Here are some pictures from the evening, look at the crowd!IMG_0358
