Speaker: Matthew Treinish
He's wanted to build a small cloud at home for some time, mostly to serve as a testbed for his development projects. But also as a platform to virtualize his growing home infrastructure. So he allocated a budget of ~$1500 USD (the price of his first desktop computer) and set out to build a cloud using OpenStack. OpenStack is an open source cloud ecosystem designed to provide users with programmable open infrastructure. It is used to power some massive private cloud deployments. But, how does it work for an individual wanting to deploy a cloud with their own resources? This talk will provide an overview of his experience building a small compute cloud from scratch, on essentially a shoestring budget; from hardware acquisition, through installation and configuration of the cloud, to his use cases for the cloud. This will serve as an introduction to OpenStack and getting started with it and will also cover the potential benefits you can get by having your own cloud at home.
