Shapeblue is the leading Apache CloudStack integrator worldwide. This presentation highlights some of the lessons learned in the field as they deploy CloudStack for their customers. Giles presents some of the trends he sees such as the adoption of clouds to support enterprise and cloud workloads, adoption of open source technologies and a trend to IT as a Service which will move us pastt the *aaS terminology and back to basic IT.

  • Lead in with monkey joke about gartner
  • Design Phase – some tips from experienceRedundancy & resilience – again some thoughts on building redundancy and resilience into the infrastructureAutomation – some examples of automation in the building of a cs architecture.Finanally a ‘word’ on documentation.
  • Across nearly all of our metrics
  • Do it as a quizSome people add on “must be on internet”
  • In this cloud era we are toldDespite how much engineering you do it will failSebastien Buemi escapes 200mph crash unhurt in ShanghaiSwiss, youngApril 2010
  • Cloud : modern, expects things to go wrong…if things get busy, he just sorts it out himeselfTraditional: We don’t like this guy, but he wont go away. relies on his staff, expects everything to work. If things get busy, its somebody elses problem
  • Storage, networking, overall architects technical and managerialEverything is interconnected and feels like everything relies on everything elseSomeone chipping in can be invaluable – particularly if they have past experience.
