In the early 2000's, Amazon began opening up its own datacenters to host services for others (including competitors such as Netflix). Amazon Web Services (AWS) is now a hugely profitable enterprise. Anyone with a credit card (and a reasonable balance), can rent anything from a single VM (with assured QoS levels) all the way up to a private cloud consisting of thousands of machines, with an array of services that includes data storage, identity management, video streaming, payment systems and so on. OpenStack is an effort to provide the same services --including compatibility with Amazon's API -- in open source form, for anyone with a bare datacenter. It consists of modules for large-scale computation, identity management, resource-sharing, networking, orchestration, monitoring, and file/block/object/image storage and serving, all in a scalable and fault-tolerant manner. Rick Clark, one of the founders and one of the early developers of OpenStack, will present an introduction to the stack and where it is headed. This talk is open to all, and will be of particular interest to those who want to know what's happening at the forefront of the cloud scene in India.
