For this grand premiere, Erwan Gallen of Red Hat and Antoine Cabot of b<>com opened the evening with a general introduction to OpenStack, and explained the role of the project’s users and contributors. The event continued with feedback from David Allès of Orange Labs. After going through the steps of researching, anticipating, and deploying public (CloudWatt) and private (Openwatt) clouds for IS applications and service platforms, Orange is now considering moving network applications into the cloud. Finally, Arnaud Morin and Pierre Libeau of OVH spoke. They looked back at the large-scale deployment of Openstack, namely 1500 servers in a single region.
Because this first edition was such a success, OpenStack MeetUps in Rennes are likely to be held again, allowing OpenStack users and developers to meet and discuss issues. Feel free to follow the community on Meetup!
