Radio Silence, OpenStack, and a Beta Program

Hi folks,

I apologize for the fact that it’s been so long since I’ve made any kind of post. The fact is, is that I’ve been out for PTO, trade conferences, and training – and I’m just now getting my head above water again.

If you saw me at Red Hat Summit, that would be the trade conference I’m referring to, and for those that came up to say hi or came to my session, thanks!! As for the session, if you saw the end, you saw a demo of the Virtual Storage Console for RHEV that we’re working on.. (If I remember correctly, that was my last post..) I talked about how the VSC for RHEV was in a “limited beta”. I happy to say that we’re quickly coming up on the public beta. I should have an official announcement in the next several days. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, see this.

On to OpenStack!! One of the other things that is going on is that I’ve been thrown into the deep end regarding OpenStack. I got to go back to NYC for training on OpenStack and had a blast. I also got to attend the OpenStack meetup/OpenStack 3rd birthday hosted by 10Gen. I’m also in the process of putting together a Red Hat OpenStack (RHOS) lab out of my home base in RTP, NC. And seeing as 70% or more of OpenStack deployments are on KVM, this is right up my alley.

Anyway, I wanted to let you fine folks know what is going on, an assure you that I’ll have some regular posts again soon.
