OSCON: Dell Multi-cloud manager & Dasein Cloud

August 1, 2013

Last week at OSCON.I grabbed some time with my new Dell co-worker, James Urquhart.  James became a Dell employee not too long ago when Dell acquired Enstratius.   I wanted to hear straight from the horses mouth about the Dell Multi-Cloud manager and the Open Source project, Dasein Cloud.  Here’s what James had to say:

Some of the ground James covers — Dell Multi-cloud Manager

  • James initial impressions of Dell
  • Where does the Multi-cloud manager fit within the Dell cloud portfolio
  • This is used by both developers and ops so how do they position it to each of those audiences.

Some of the ground James covers — Dasein:

  • What is Dasein Cloud and does it work (hint: its more than API mapping)
  • Hows the community and which companies are supporting it
  • What are the project’s goals for the next year

Dell and Sputnik go to OSCON

July 18, 2013

Next week, myself, Michael Cote and a whole other bunch of Dell folk will be heading out to Portland for the 15th annual OSCON-ana-polooza.  We will have two talks that you might want to check out:

Cote and I will be giving the first and the second will be lead by Joseph George and James Urquhart.

Sputnik Shirt

And speaking of Project Sputnik, we will be giving away three of our XPS 13 developer editions:  one as a door prize at the OpenStack birthday party, one as a drawing at our booth and one to be given away at James and Joseph’s talk listed above.

We will also have a limited amount of the shirt to the right so stop by the booth.

But wait, there’s more….

To learn firsthand about Dell’s open source solutions be sure to swing by booth #719 where we will have experts on hand to talk to you about our wide array of solutions:

  • OpenStack cloud solutions
  • Hadoop big data solutions
  • Crowbar
  • Project Sputnik (the client to cloud developer platform)
  • Dell Multi-Cloud Manager (the platform formerly known as “Enstratius”)
  • Hyperscale computing systems

Hope to see you there.

Pau for now…
