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.

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.
