Title: The OpenStack Cloud Computing Framework and Eco-System
Authors: Andrew Edmonds, Christof Marti, Fabrice Mannhart, Thomas M. Bohnert (presenter)
OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution.
The InIT Cloud Computing Lab (ICCLab) of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences is researching the full cloud computing stack. Much of this work happens in the context of the OpenStack framework and the ICCLab is official coordinator of the “OpenStack Community Switzerland”.
In this talk we’ll present evolution, objectives, scope, and status of the the OpenStack project. Attendees will be briefed from an technological and eco-system perspective, thus learning what defines Cloud Computing, how OpenStack implements Cloud Computing, and how to engage with the OpenStack community. The talk will close with a short overview of research activities and services provided by the ICClab.
Event: Open Cloud and Public Administration
/ch/open will organize an event in June in Bern about Open Cloud and Public Administrations. The event will be under the sponsorship of Oscar Nierstrasz of the Software Composition Group of the Institute of Informatics and Applied Mathematics of the University of Bern.
Place: University of Bern, UniS, room 003
Date: 19. June 2012

Motivation and Goal
Cloud Computing becomes more and more important. To get the full power of clouds in the view of /ch/open these
clouds should be open according of the principles open cloud initiative (http://www.opencloudinitiative.org/).
The goal is to foster open clouds and interoperability of clouds. Especially taking into account the requirements of
