1,097

Published on

A presentation I did to the inaugural CompCon at ANU in Canberra 29/09/2013.In a phenomenally short time OpenStack has risen to be the dominant platform for building private and public clouds of any scale. With 1000s of contributors and hundreds of companies backing the project, Tristan will demonstrate why you need to know about OpenStack and get involved now.
- What is OpenStack
- History of the project
- Phenomenal growth of the project
- Relevance in Australia and internationally, presenting opportunities to build green field clouds the world over.
- Massive job demand

  • Successful platforms have three forces:TechnologyEcosystem Users
  • Apple’s ios800,000+ apps and 106 carriersMore than 500 million devices in 113 countries(These stats are all from June by the way)
  • Google’s Android800,000+ apps on 95 carriers by 44 device makers750 million devices in 104 countries
  • Facebook and it’s development platform9 million appsMore than 1 billion users
  • So how is all this made?
  • The goal of
  • Service Provider, Media delivery, Business Intelligence
  • Protecting, Empowering, and Promoting OpenStack software and the community around it, including users, developers and the entire ecosystem. Over 12,000 Individual Members, up from 5,600 at launchThe leading Global IT companies as Gold & Platinum MembersThree key componentsBoard of Directors - sets strategic directionProject Technical Leads and a Technical Committee - elected from among the contributorsUser Committee - ensures the users voices are heard
  • Technical people making technical decisions based on meritDedicated resources building the community and ecosystemA strong ecosystem of companies making moneyEncouraging and rewarding contribution in all forms
  • A business can take advantage of this community driven innovation because there’ll always be more smart people not working for you, than working for you, so take advantage!
  • OpenStack - What is it and why you should know about it!

    29. 29. Developer Interest = Rapid Innovation
    30. 30. • Open platform ‣ Community-driven innovation ‣ Technology accessible in many ways: hourly, appliance, distribution, DIY ‣ mandatory interoperability between all OpenStack clouds • Empowered users and developers ‣ Deep engagement from our users and developers ‣ Users have more control of their destiny • Broad, global support from companies ‣ Not driven by a single company; no single source; ‣ Aggregate investment is huge OpenStack Goals
    31. 31. Expanded scope from Compute and Object Storage to Compute, Storage, Networking and Shared Services, with rich ecosystem of Integrated projects emerging, LBaaS, DBaaS, metering and billing etc OpenStack has public clouds in more cities than Amazon has regions, and they are interoperable! Major user adoption OpenStack has become the centre of cloud innovation 3 years in – Report Card
    32. 32. Australia Relevance in and internationally
    33. 33. • We are the most virtualised country in the world, but our cloud adoption is pedestrian (we can cut costs, compete globally) • Build clouds free of proprietary (read US dominated) constraints • It provides the “primordial soup” which entrepreneurs feed on • Develop cloud computing technologies here and export skills • Reverse the “brain drain” • Organizations are realizing OpenStack is the only way forward to “glue” their infrastructure together • Perfect for Government adoption & compliments Open Government initiatives • No more puppies – just them cows – no more clickfails OpenStack in Australia
    34. 34. • “Cloud for the rest of the world” • Lowers barriers of entry for emerging and developing nations • Democracy beats dictatorship in the Cloud! • Internationalisation helps level the cloud playing field • Data ownership worries (NSA etc), build your cloud on sovereign soil, always retain control of your data! • October Summit will be the first outside of the US (in Hong Kong) • Huge surge in code contribution from outside the US • Most use cases are now outside the US • Creating jobs all over the world http://openstack.org/jobs (More on jobs later) The global impact of OpenStack
    35. 35. Dr. Liu Ming keynoted the inaugural APAC OpenStack conference in Beijing last August…. He is the “Deputy Director of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology Software and Integrated Circuit Promotion Centre” “OpenStack will smash the monopoly of the western cloud providers!” Possible future news headline… “China and USA sign peace accord at the 2016 OpenStack Summit” China loves OpenStack!
    36. 36. A great analogy comes from the early days of the Internet… …the transition away from fractured, proprietary flavours of UNIX toward open-source Linux. An open cloud will provide the same benefits to cloud computing that the Linux standard provided to the server. Why OpenStack will become predominant
    37. 37. Plus… it’s a lot of fun to be involved!
