CloudStack news, Giles Sirett. Giles will talk about all that’s new and happening within the Apache CloudStack community, and about new and future releases, exciting features, upcoming events and more!

Importing VMware infrastructures into CloudStack, Andre Paul. The talk will show how the VMware ingestion feature uses existing VMware Zones, and ‘imports’ them into CloudStack. We will describe the process by which database entries of already existing components of an existing virtual machine are created and how it enables CloudStack to safely manage such instances even though they were not initially set up by CloudStack.

CloudStack and Terraform, Robert Sander. This talk will give an introduction on how to use Terraform to deploy CloudStack infrastructure (VMs, Networks, Storage, etc.) using the Terraform cloudstack modules.

Primate, a new CloudStack UI, Paul Angus. There is currently significant effort going on in the Apache CloudStack community to develop a new, modern, UI (user interface) for CloudStack: Project Primate. In this talk Paul discusses why this new UI is required, the history of this project and how it will be included in future CloudStack releases.

Running Cloudstack and OpenShift with NetApp on KVM, Sven Vogel. This talk provides an insight into the way in which we at EWERK run OpenShift (kubernetes) Clusters on Cloudstack.
