Open Cirrus Summit
Hosted by HP, Intel and Yahoo!
Palo Alto, CA - June 8-9, 2009
Open Cirrus is an open cloud-computing research testbed designed to support research into the design, provisioning, and management of services at a global, multi-datacenter scale.
The open nature of the testbed is designed to encourage research into all aspects of service and datacenter management. In addition, we hope to foster a collaborative community around the testbed, providing ways to share tools, lessons and best practices, and ways to benchmark and compare alternative approaches to service management at datacenter scale.
Open Cirrus’ corporate sponsors, HP, Intel and Yahoo!, are pleased to announce the first Open Cirrus Summit, June 8-9 2009, in Palo Alto, California. Current and prospective members of the Open Cirrus community are invited to participate in this important event, designed to build a sense community among members and foster discussion and dialogue on relevant research topics.
Objectives for the Summit include:
• Kick-off of Open Cirrus with its sponsors and members;
• Community and team building among participants;
• Discussion and planning on the evolution of Open Cirrus infrastructure;
• Discussion and planning on research topics; and
• Discussion and planning on services to develop and test on the Open Cirrus infrastructure.
The program for the Open Cirrus will consist of a series of general sessions on the first day (June 8), followed by presentations by guest speakers and breakout sessions on the second day (June 9).
