10th Swiss OpenStack User Group Meetup

10thCHOSUG2

Last evening, we had our 10th OpenStack Switzerland User Group Meetup. The nice folks at Puzzle ITC hosted and sponsored the event in their premises. The meetup started with a warm welcome from Mr. Mark Waber, CEO of Puzzle ITC and our own Mr. Andy Edmonds, Senior Researcher in the lab.

We quickly moved on with the presentations, 6 talks in total sandwiched between a 30 mins break for delicious Pizzas, some chilled Beer and delightful networking ūüôā Special thanks again to Puzzle!

Following is the list of presentations we had yesterday and a link to them. There was an interesting round of questions and answers following each talk (which of course couldn’t be recorded) and a round of applause for the presenter.

1st Swiss OpenStack User Group Meeting

The 1st Swiss OpenStack user group meeting that was organized by the zhgeeks and the ICCLab at the ETH Z√ľrich¬†met with a large response.¬†Over 90 people attended the meeting with¬†different¬†background and¬†interests¬†in connection¬†with¬†OpenStack.

 

The meeting started with a good and brief introduction into the components and the community around OpenStack by Tim Bell and how it is used in CERN, the largest OpenStack cluster in Switzerland. The subsequent lightning talks, each about 10 minutes, covered different aspects in the current usage and development of OpenStack, including two from the ICCLab. We described our OpenStack testbed and also the topical area of software defined networking.

The slides and short abstracts about the introduction and lightning talks can be found on the official Swiss Openstack Usergroup Wiki.
