Two Dell-Sponsored Austin Cloud Meetups in Five Days
Wanted to let the Austin cloud enthusiasts, professionals, and fans know that Dell (the company that I work for) will be hosting a couple of user group gatherings this week…
The Austin OpenStack Meetup
This meetup has been a staple of the Austin OpenStack community, with Dell having spearheaded its start in October of last year.
We’ve had a number of great companies join Dell in sponsoring this monthly meetup at Austin’s Tech Ranch, including Rackspace, Suse, Canonical, and even HP.
This month, we’ve got Puppet Labs joining Dell as a joint sponsor of the meetup. On the docket for discussion:
- Important topics, events, news, etc from the OpenStack Design Summit and Conference held in San Francisco the week of Apr 16
- Discussion on the recently announced OpenStack Foundation – we hope to have someone from the foundation development team present
- A review of DevStack as a community development platform
Should be loads of fun – come hungry and thirsty – loads of pizza and cokes. (BTW people, let’s at least TRY to make a dent in the salad this time.)
All the details you need to know are at www.meetup.com/OpenStack-Austin.
The Austin Cloud User Group
Dell has been a sponsor of this user group before, and a number of us attend regularly – we’re glad to be back to talk about some of the things going on with Dell’s public cloud. Specifically, our Dell cloud services team will be hosting and talking about the goings on at Dell in the cloud hosting space.
You’ll see Dell’s cloud evangelist, Stephen Spector, as he touches on
- Discussion and demos of Dell’s vCloud hosted offering
- Demos of processor intensive applicataions in a public cloud setting
- Demos of a few common applications running on Dell’s cloud
If you’ve ever seen Stephen speak, you know you’re in for a treat. For those who don’t know, Stephen is the former Community Manager for the OpenStack community, so we’re ecstatic to have him here at Dell!
Again, come hungry and thirsty – loads of pizza and cokes.

OK, that’s it – be sure to make it out to at least one of these meetups, and we’ll give you a shout out if make it to both.
Until next time,
