OpenStack on Cloudlab-demo and tutorial

Tuesday March 3, 2:00 – 3:10 PM
Tuesday March 3, 4:00 – 5:10 PM
(Offered twice – if attending, only need to attend one offering)
GSU Room 315


Abstract

This demo will show participants how to create a small test cloud on CloudLab using OpenStack.  This OpenStack instantiation will run on dedicated bare-metal machines that instantiated on-demand during the demo, and capable of executing arbitrary cloud experiments.  Users have complete administrative (root) access to these machines, enabling fully customizability and configurability of the OpenStack installation.  The demo will demonstrate the capabilities of CloudLab and its web interface, as well as put it in context with the Open Cloud Testbed.”


Additional Information


If you are interested in participating in the OpenStack on CloudLab Demo and Tutorial, we recommend registering with CloudLab in advance. Filling out this form does not commit you to the session – it simply gets you set up to follow the tutorial and participate. If you opt to attend the session without registering with CloudLab, you will only be able to watch it as a demo.

Please complete the form by Friday, February 28 to ensure your account can be set up in time. A member of the CloudLab team will be in touch on next steps.
