With the growth and adoption of OpenStack, the real possibility of federating multiple clouds is emerging. But are the software and the community ready for this? What are the real use cases for a hybrid OpenStack cloud?
Come and hear how CERN is working with Rackspace to develop solutions for connecting multiple OpenStack clouds, and how a hybrid cloud can help further CERN important research into the origins of the universe.
Tim Bell, Manager of Infrastructure for CERN, and Toby Owen, Head of Technical Strategy for Rackspace, will discuss their joint Openlab research project into federation of OpenStack clouds. They will explain the problems they are aiming to solve with federation, potential architectures and blueprints that will guide the research project, current progress, and future plans.
