Workshop: Whopper Apps – PaaS Notes, Your Way Right Away – Alex Heneveld – CTO Cloudsoft
A flame-broiling tour of over a dozen PaaS and application management tools that help applications make intelligent use of on-demand infrastructure. This talk will cover some of the main challenges we have faced building elastic multi-cloud applications for enterprises, then describe how Puppet Bosh Right Chef Foundry Shift Brooklyn And Friends help solve thems (and the new challenges they introduce too).



Workshop: Hadoop Worldwide – Roll Your Own Multi-Cloud Analytics with jclouds, Whirr, and Brooklyn
- Alex Heneveld - Cloudsoft
- Adrian Cole – Cloudsoft

Discover the gory details of some of the most powerful open-source tools for building and managing big applications in the clouds. In this workshop, we’ll walk through how to provision machines — in any of more than 30 cloud providers and systems — with jclouds, how to build Hadoop clusters — in any of those clouds — with Whirr, and how to deploy and manage a real-world example — combining Hadoop with a geo-balanced DNS multi-cloud web application — with the recently APL2′d Brooklyn library. We’ll present recent work supporting localhost dev alongside production OpenStack environments, and cover why — and where — it is important to control certain aspects of deployment and management. You’ll leave with an in-depth understanding of these tools, what they do, where they apply, and how to use them.
