Early Excellence


This is an all-day event, bringing together the Apache CloudStack and Ceph communities. The morning (09:00 – 12:45) will be a mixture of Ceph and CloudStack talks, looking at how the technologies work together, and the afternoon will split into two tracks – one devoted to Ceph and the other to CloudStack. See below for the full agenda.

The talks will start at 09:00, breakfast available from 08:30. 

As always, there will be some great speakers, lunch, the chance to meet and collaborate with other Ceph & CloudStack users, and an informal gathering afterwards over a drink!
