  • “It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind afacade of order - and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an eveneerier type of order.” – Douglas Hofstadter
  • OpenStackThe Evolution of Software-Defined InfrastructureJoshua McKentyDirector, OpenStack FoundationMember, Python Software FoundationChief Technology Officer, Piston Cloud@jmckentyjosh@openstack.org
  • Time = Money.Time-to-market = Win.
  • Computers have gotten faster.IT has gotten slower.
  • Silos cause slowness.
  • “Software defined” isabout... using scriptsand other automationtools to remove “humanmiddleware” from theequation.– Neil MacDonald, Gartner
  • "In scale-up, serversare like pets. You namethem and when theyget sick, you nursethem back to health…
