Notes from listening to Red Hat Cloud Computing Forum
- Brian Stevens, RHT CTO -
Reduce the cost of EXIT from the cloud. Sounds like "well, duh", but yeah, something to be kept in mind.
- Matt Aslett, the 451 group -
http://nebula.nasa.gov/services -- example of cloud
Japan is behind in Cloud
- Jeff Garzik talks about CLD. It's improved from the
time I heard it last. More concise and makes sense.
AMQP - does it help?
Jeff is talking about distributed storage stuff to be built over Hail. I wonder. If there's no consistency/coherency underneath, it's hard to build it on top.
HyperTable, port over CLD?
- Michael DeHaan, RHT - Cobbler (mdehaan@)
Cobbler works before the system exists, Puppet works after the system exists.
- Matthew Farrellee - Condor (job scheduler)
[maybe I should use it to build Map/Reduce, unless Hadoop of course]
- Rich Wolski, Eucalyptus Systems Inc. - "Yuakaliptus",
in Santa Barbara
Emulates AWS but not designed to replace AWS... Too modest.
Has S3 ("Walrus") and EBS (root filesystems etc.), APIs to attach/detach to VMs.
So, are Ubuntoids going to ship this Eucalyptus or other Eucalyptus? Yes.
* Google App Engine: emulated in UCSB by AppScale
RabbitMQ - commercial (proprietary too?) SQS implementation.
- Mike Olson, CEO of Cloudera
V.interesting history bg
"Hadoop provides people with a v.powerful NEW tool to do data analysis."
Hadoop sits on top of HDFS (Hadoop Distributed FS). Ah-ha!
- KVM skipping
- libVirt skipping
- Skipping Sunny Gosain and ERP talk
- Brian Kearney RHT "Sr. Consulting Engineer" - project
Thincrust (how is it different from Cobbler?)
Thincrust.org creates a text that can be fed to Cobbler (or elsewhere).
- Chander Kent, CEO of Zmanda - backup to a cloud. A
APIs: Amazon S3, CloudFiles, SunCloud, Microsoft Azure.
libzcloud - open library
