Riak is a proud sponsor and exhibitor of Cloud Connect Chicago. The Cloud Connect conferences provide CIOs, IT professionals, and developers with the necessary tools to navigate cloud technologies and deploy cloud solutions in their organizations. Cloud Connect Chicago takes place October 21-23rd.
Riak engineer and Apache CloudStack PPMC member, John Burwell, will also be speaking on “Building Complete Private Clouds with Apache CloudStack and Riak CS” as part of the CloudStack track. During this session, he will explain how the combination of the CloudStack Infrastructure as a Service platform and the Riak CS object store will allow you to establish operational agility to drive rapid innovation and embrace commodity infrastructure without sacrificing scalability or reliability. He will also explore more general cloud system architecture principles and best practices.
While Burwell’s talk will be focused on Riak CS and CloudStack, Riak CS also offers OpenStack integration. Stop by the Riak booth to learn more about Riak’s object storage solution, Riak CS, and how it can be used in conjunction with both CloudStack and OpenStack.
