The federation of multiple clouds in the real world isn’t far out of reach, and through a CERN openlab research project, CERN and Rackspace are probing the possibility of true federated hybrid clouds built on OpenStack.
At OpenStack Summit Hong Kong, Rackspace and MIT took the keynote stage to discuss how OpenStack is being used in academia and how it is powering sophisticated research projects.
OpenStack is driving true change in academia – it’s powering some of the most sophisticated research projects at top organizations throughout the world. OpenStack has provided researchers a low cost, high performance compute option to handle intense workloads and empowers computer science engineers with a free and open cloud operating system.
At OpenStack Summit Hong Kong, Jonathan Proulx of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) highlighted how the lab is using OpenStack to power dozens of research projects.
OpenStack Summit Hong Kong is the largest Summit yet, with more than 3,500 attendees. The turnout is an illustration that OpenStack is a truly global project.
Showing a short clip from the ABC smash TV comedy “Modern Family,” DigitalFilm Tree Inc. CTO Guillaume Aubuchon showcased how OpenStack-powered public and private clouds can work together to create a true hybrid infrastructure and spark collaboration.
As a prelude to this week’s OpenStack Summit Hong Kong, the China and Hong Kong OpenStack User Groups got together to talk all things OpenStack and hear from cloud experts from around the globe.
When the OpenStack Foundation was created in 2012, one key issue was how choose the eight elected directors of the foundation board. After vigorous community debate, there was a decision to choose cumulative voting. In cumulative voting, each individual member of the OpenStack Foundation gets eight votes, which can be cast for multiple people or all be cast for a single candidate.
The Rackspace Cloud is now available in our new Hong Kong (HKG) region. This marks our third new region in 2013, including Sydney, which launched in June and Northern Virginia, which came online in August. The launch of Hong Kong brings our total global region count to six:  Dallas, Chicago, Northern Virginia, London, Sydney and Hong Kong.
