2010 OpenStack Summit – San Antonio TX

2010 OpenStack Summit – San Antonio TX

The second OpenStack summit is under way. So far the discussions appear to be very detailed, and have lots of contributors. There was quite a bit of debate around IPv6; As of this writing the Austin release of nova does not currently provide IPv6 support, however the Bexar release should contain “dual stack” which will allow it to support both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. This is a major step moving forward because of the well known IPv4 shortage. The faster we can implement a solid IPv6 solution within OpenStack the better.

All in all the summit is going well, and it seems we are going to be making good progress in the future releases. Below is some more information about the summit including the agenda, and registration links. Also keep in mind that OpenStack is an open source cloud computing platform which means that if you like to get your hands dirty and write some code, you can download it and hack away. The best part is that since its open source its free!
