  • Introduce me and Chuck, explain that we work at Rackspace. Next slide talks about Rackspace.
  • The next couple of slides define OpenStack and what it means to us.
  • Next slide shows the partners and headshots
  • We’re both a community and a cloud technology with associated projects
  • OpenStack is doing this: Next slide shows how we create open source software.
  • Next we’ll talk about our mission – all this rolls into the mission of OpenStack
  • With that big of a mission, what makes us think we’re so important?
  • Ok, this is why we think we’re important. How do you know what we were founded on? Next are the founding principles.
  • Linux companies: SUSE, Red Hat, Canonical Open Handset Alliance made up of 34 companies including HTC, Motorola, Samsung, Google, Qualcomm, ARM OpenStack community can have the same successful community 
  • Next, who founded OpenStack in the first place?
  • Rackspace has been in the cloud business for 5 years. We had to build it ourselves because we have never find anything that fit our needs. There is a lot that can be learned from what we have done right and wrong. We are now running 10s of thousands of VMs for over 100,000 customers. Rackspace has over 60,000 physical servers. NASA is the largest collector of data in human history. NASA collects data from Mars rovers, satellites, and other cutting edge tools including cameras with exapixel scale. When data is lost, a rocket has to be launched into space, so “mission critical” is not just a slogan with NASA. NASA faced a similar issue. They built their own solution because they could not find the right pieces in the market. They are serving a scientific community with very high purpose -- to run NASA missions, to analyze data from satellites and telescopes, and to look for ET. Think of it this way: 1. They have telescopes that collect Exapixel images. I am not even sure how big that it, but it requires a lot of storage and processing capability. 2. Losing data is expensive. They have to launch another rocket! Or wait 80 years for a comet to return. This is mission critical stuff. But we still have to make this stuff into “products” -- much like enterprises do. At Rackspace, it has to power our hosting offer. At NASA, it has to serve the scientific community. By deploying OpenStack, enterprises get the benefit of our experience including successes and failures.
  • More than 35 technology industry leaders officially support the OpenStack community. Enterprise technology providers like Citrix are basing their technology offerings on OpenStack; hardware providers like Dell and Cirrascale and testing OpenStack to determine the best reference architecture; professional services CloudScaling,

  • So back to the mission. We want to make IT easier. To abstract from the hardware environment to a standardized software environment.
  • These are straightforward. Without them, you don’t have a cloud.
  • Add 3 rd party tools to complete the solution, and integrate into your existing systems, using APIs. The modular design of OpenStack is key.
