Happy Monday and happy October! If you’re not a member of our OpenStack New York Meetup (which you should be), you probably haven’t heard about our Meetup on Tuesday, October 11th @ Dogpatch Labs. Here’s the rundown:
Judd Maltin and Sean OMeara will be discussing new developments around OpenStack Swift. They will explore how Voxel has used their hybrid IaaS platform VoxCLOUD to stand up Swift clusters using OpsCode’s Chef Product.
Swift is open source software for creating redundant, scalable object storage using clusters of standardized servers to store data. It is not a file system or real-time data storage system, but rather a long-term storage system for a more permanent type of static data that can be retrieved, leveraged, and then updated as necessary.
Here’s some info on our speakers:
Judd Maltin has been on the bleeding edge of Internet technologies since the early 90′s. His roles include working as a Netscape Systems Engineer, architecting the NYSE’s identity management system, and architecting the Electric Sheep Company’s CSI:NY/SecondLife tie-in event which drew hundreds of thousands of participants. These days, he works as a hired gun at Voxel.net – the lead engineer on their OpenStack Swift “VoxFiles” service offering, using OpsCode’s Chef to do the repetitive heavy lifting. He’s always active in the community, and loves the challenges of bridging the worlds of Free and Open Source software, start-up entrepreneurship, Internet-scale systems, and large corporate information systems.
Sean OMeara is the Senior Technical Evangelist at Opscode in NYC, and an expert in the Chef product offering. He has worked at many notable startups, including AppNexus, Drop.io, and Paperless Post. He parachutes into client sites, writes cookbooks and training materials, and hates writing about himself in the 3rd person…
