OpenStack summit in Portland & HEPiX Summer Workshop 2013

In less than 2 weeks we are going to present the current status of our OpenStack installation at two important conferences related to clouds and grids.

On 15th of April Toni is going to Portland, where the nearest Openstack summit will take place. He will give detailed information about the architecture of CMSooooCloud, installation and configuration aspects and the big scale performance tests (about 1200 hypervisors under control of one OpenStack cloud manager).

At the same time I am going to talk about the virtualization and re-usage of resources in Bologna (Italy) at The High Energy Physics Unix Information Exchange. I will focus on benefits of applying the cloud approach in scientific environment. I will also cover aspect of network virtualization using OpenVSwitch.

We hope to meet some of you there.
