OpenStack

Project: http://lca2013.linux.org.au/wiki/Miniconfs/OpenStack

The OpenStack miniconf will be a full day of discussions dedicated to users, providers, researchers, or cloud enthusiasts, to learn about the fastest growing free software implementation of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.
