An Introduction to Building Clouds on Apache CloudStack - Giles Sirett, ShapeBlue
Apache CloudStack is open source software designed to deploy and manage large networks of virtual machines, as a highly available, highly scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud computing platform. In this talk, Giles will give an introduction to the technology, its history and its architecture. He will look common use-cases (and some real production deployments) that he sees across both public and private cloud infrastructures and where CloudStack can be completed by other open source technologies. Giles will also compare and contrast Apache Cloudstack with other IaaS platforms and why he thinks that the technology, combined with the Apache governance model will see CloudStack become the de-facto open source cloud platform. He will run a live demo of the software and talk about ways that people can get involved in the Apache CloudStack project.

moVirt: Mobile Application for Monitoring of oVirt Datacenter - Tomas Jelinek, Red Hat
A simple mobile application for oVirt administrators to monitor oVirt data center and notify them of critical conditions is presented.

It is an Android application integrated with oVirt REST API which supports three main areas:
(1) configurable notifications which notifies the user upon various events such as when the VM goes down, (2) possibility to understand the problem by presenting the VM details together with it's events and (3) basic options how to react on this situation such as turn on, reboot, etc.

In this presentation a different ways how to monitor the oVirt data center will be presented as well as how moVirt fits into this ecosystem. Together with the current and planned features also the architecture of the solution and interesting implementation details will be presented.

NFV for Beginners - Dave Neary, Red Hat
Network Function Virtualization is a domain laden with acronyms, which can seem impenetrable to newcomers who have not worked with networking before.

This presentation will explain what we mean by network functions, the issues involved in virtualizing them, give an overview of the relevant open source projects for an NFV platform, the relationship between NFV and SDN (and go through the state of things today, and what you can expect to see in the coming year.

Open Source Clouds: Be the Change You Want to See in the World - Tryggvi Lárusson, GreenQloud
The open source model has inspired a new initiative, based on the appropriate technology movement (AT), dubbed Open Source Appropriate Technology (OSAT). The AT movement is driven by people who wish to develop technology that is environmentally, culturally and economically appropriate. The open source model, combined with the AT movement, creates a framework for a universal collaboration towards increasing living standards and lowering environmental damage.

In this presentation, Tryggvi Lárusson will showcase tangible examples of sustainable cloud services capitalizing on open source technologies, while showcasing how open source, sustainability, environmental responsibility and advances in technology intersect in the service of solving real-world problems and encouraging the whole market to utilize OSAT.
