Snakes on a Cloud: the OpenStack Project
This talks start by defining the place of OpenStack in the general “cloud” landscape and explaining why a fully open cloud infrastructure stack is necessary to avoid vendor lock-in. It then focuses on the OpenStack project goals, its developer community, its open design and release processes and the developer tools it chose.
The second part of the talk presents into more technical details the different components of OpenStack: Nova (compute) and Swift (storage), including the Python libraries that are used (libvirt, SQLAlchemy, eventlet…).
