If you’re going to Vancouver for LinuxCon, you’ll have not one but *two* opportunities to see us live and in the flesh. On Thursday, August 18, at 5:15pm, we will be hosting a birds-of-a-feather session to discuss all sorts of fun things: GlusterFS roadmap, integrations with OpenStack and Hadoop, and whatever else you want to know about as it pertains to GlusterFS. AB Periasamy, Gluster co-founder and CTO, will be in attendance, which gives attendees a great chance to get the straight dope directly from the source.
Next, AB will present at 10:15am on bringing intelligent storage to OpenStack. This will focus on our ability to be the storage layer for compute VM’s, as well as a way to use GlusterFS as the unified file and object storage for OpenStack-based applications.
This comes on the heels of our joining the Linux Foundation, so look for us at more events in the future.
