Following from our successful and fun outing at the Openstack Summit in Paris (read all about our adventures here, here and here ) at which Vojtech and Srikanta gave talks on live migration and rating, charging and billing respectively (videos here), we’re getting prepped up for the next one in Vancouver.

This time out, we’ve thrown our hat into the ring twice. Victor has put something together on his adventures with Monasca and I’m hoping to talk a bit about our energy focused work.

We’ll describe our preliminary development on Watchtower which is a Cloud Incident Management solution that is built on a bunch of technologies including Monasca, Camunda, and Rundeck. It provides workflow and process automation empowered by BPMN 2.0 for handling the incidents’ lifecycle, and runbook automation in order to resolve them automatically. Vote here if you’re interested in this.

On the energy side, we’re hoping to talk about our work on our Kwapi based energy monitoring tool and some of the work we have been doing on advanced energy based control systems for openstack which leverage live migration mechanisms to ensure energy efficiency is maximized. Vote here if you’re interested in hearing about this at the summit (or if you’re interested in this generally!)

We’re really looking forward to seeing what’s new in Openstack in Hollywood North in May!
