Virtual CloudStack European User Group (vCSEUG) – May 27, 2021

Thursday, May 27 was the first-ever vCSEUG, and the first time the community had met since February 2020 (the last pre-COVID meetup in Berlin). It was time to reconnect! We have missed the chance to interact with other community members, learn what’s new in CloudStack and hear from the companies using it. So, we needed to find a solution to overcome all barriers. Organizing a virtual event was not only a great chance for the EU User Group members to meet but also to invite CloudStack community members and contributors from all around the globe to join in. About the […]

Berlin - CloudStack European User Group 2020

CloudStack European User Group (CSEUG) roundup – Berlin, February 27, 2020

Our late winter (almost spring) meetup saw us back in Berlin, hosted by iTelligence and Heinlein Support. The last CloudStack user group held here was June 2016, and we were looking forward to returning to this fantastic city. This was always going to be a great event – the room was at capacity, with attendees traveling from the UK, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Serbia, Latvia, the Czech Republic and Switzerland… and of course a few from Germany (sorry if I’ve missed anyone!). It’s always good to see lots of different countries represented, and it’s typical of this vibrant, friendly community that […]

CloudStack & Ceph day, Thursday, October 24 2019 – roundup

On Thursday, October 24 2019 the CloudStack community joined up with the Ceph community for a combined event in London, and it was another super day!

All the day’s talks were recorded, and all video can be found here. Links to […]

Las Vegas Entry Sign | CloudStack Collaboration Conference 2019

CloudStack Collaboration Conference, back in Las Vegas, September 9-11, 2019

It’s taken me a couple of weeks to write this blog, and not because it took me that long to recover from a week in Las Vegas! The CloudStack Collaboration Conference is part of ApacheCon, and this was a year for anniversaries – not only ApacheCon 20th anniversary, but an anniversary of sorts for CloudStack, as our first ever Collaboration Conference was in Las Vegas 7 years ago.  Just like 7 years ago (and every year since) this was a fantastic few days, with great talks and more evidence (if any was required) proving that Apache CloudStack continues getting […]

Welcome to TicketMaster CloudStack European User Group (CSEUG) 2019

CloudStack European User Group (CSEUG) roundup – London, March 2019

Our first meetup of 2019 saw us at a new venue – Ticketmaster’s London HQ, and if you’re a music lover it certainly takes the prize for coolest meeting venue yet! Walls covered with pictures of rock stars and a stage complete with guitars and Marshall amps (not to mention pinball machines and a bar) created a real buzz of excitement before the meeting had even started. Once everyone had met up with friends, taken photos and finished lunch, Giles Sirett (CSEUG chairman) called the meeting to order, and kicked the day off with CloudStack news. Giles talked us through […]

CloudStack European User Group roundup – London, December 2018

There was a definite feel of Christmas in the air in London as we made our way to last Thursday’s (December 13) winter meetup of the Cloudstack European User Group (CSEUG), and that only increased as we arrived at the BT Centre near St. Paul’s and saw the big Christmas tree in reception! A great turnout for this, the last meetup of 2018, and a great representation of the CloudStack community in Europe with people travelling from Germany, Serbia, Glasgow, Switzerland and Latvia to name but a few. After a quick lunch we took our seats, and Giles Sirett (chairman […]
