Cloudstack – Apache’s Best Kept Secret – Giles Sirett
CloudStack is one of the most successful Apache projects – but awareness of it remains poor. It is used to underpin the IaaS offerings of many of the worlds largest service providers and as an infrastructure automation platform to underpin the development and operations of 1000’s of organisations globally.
Giles will give an overview of the technology and explain his view on why CloudStack remains to “secret man” of Apache projects. He will talk through the history of the technology. He will discuss its use-cases (particularly as the foundation of CI/CD and dev environments) and the advantages of it being an Apache project.
He will be open and frank in his views on what he would like to see change in order that CloudStack gets the attention it deserves
