In this talk, we'll cover three basic things:
The basics of Apache CloudStack: What it is, what it does, and (at a high level) how it does it.
How to start with a small test deployment of Apache CloudStack.
How to learn more, and get involved in the CloudStack project.
Apache CloudStack is a mature, turnkey open source IaaS cloud project, and it can be extremely valuable in the right environment. Is it what you need? We'll cover the basics of Apache CloudStack - what it is, what it does, and how it does it. Next, we'll take a look at the basics of setting up a small test deployment and using DevCloud for development testing. Finally, we'll talk about the CloudStack community and how to get involved to learn more and even contribute to the project.
