Description: Aaron and Brian talk with Joshua McKenty (Founder/CTO, Piston Cloud, @jmckenty) about the origins of OpenStack, the OpenStack Foundation, RefStack, Interoperability, AWS APIs and how the Piston Cloud architecture manages legacy and web-scale applications. - Music Credit: Nine Inch Nails, www.nin.com

  • Topic 1: How is OpenStack Foundation different from Linux Foundation or other OSS governance?
  • Topic 2: RefStack, OpenStack Interop Project
  • Topic 3: How should customers view the debates about adding AWS API to OpenStack?
  • Topic 4: Looking forward to OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong (key issues, new designs, etc.)
  • Topic 5: Piston Cloud architecture -- focused on “enterprise," some “VMware-like features” (live VM migrations, resource pooling, security), but also a focus on pets vs. cattle architecture.

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
