With storage in the cloud taking a lead role in the adoption of cloud computing, according to a recent TechTarget survey, it’s a good time to take a deep dive into the role of open source and OpenStack in driving the transition.

Video: How Cisco Webex deploys OpenStack Private Cloud into Production

For those of you who missed the OpenStack Summit in San Diego 2 weeks ago, one of the highlights was the Keynote presentation by our friend Reinhardt Quelle, architect of the Cisco Webex OpenStack cloud.

Making the most of your application performance on OpenStack Cloud

In one of my previous posts I outlined some considerations when deploying OpenStack and different approaches to distribution of OpenStack services across hardware to provide HA.

To get OpenStack Cloud, get this: developers want Serverless Computing

Just back from a pretty intense week at the SRO OpenStack summit in San Diego (capacity: 1200; attended: 1500), and I can report that the hype about the hype is not overhyped.

Guest Post: Protecting OpenStack

The following is a guest post by Tristan Goode, OpenStack Foundation Board member and CEO of Aptira. I believe a key role of the OpenStack Foundation is to protect the brand that is OpenStack. I also believe that training is of key importance to advancing OpenStack. Recently Rackspace advertised offering “Rackspace Certified Training for OpenStack“. […]

Configuring a multi-region cluster for cloud object storage with OpenStack Swift

Recently, SwiftStack published an interesting overview of their approach to multi-regional OpenStack Swift Object Storage clusters. This approach is perfectly aligned with a design we have been working on with Webex for a geographically distributed Swift cluster with a reduced number of replicas (3+1 instead of 3+3, for example). I’d like to go over our […]
