UNIX Users Association of Southern California - LA

This page is for the Los Angeles County chapter of the UNIX Users Association of Southern California. We welcome people who are interested in any and all forms of UNIX. The primary focus of the group is our monthly presentations, which are designed to hopefully improve technical knowledge, rather than be just sales-type presentations.

Membership is FREE. Just come to a meeting, and sign yourself up for the (e)mailing list!


Next Meeting, Wednesday October 8th, 7pm-9pm

Location: Q 6080 Center Drive Suite 925 Los Angeles California, 90045

Adrian Otto - Containers for Multi-Cloud Applications

About the Presentation:

Adrian Otto, Principal Architect at RackSpace, returns to UUASC to present a talk that he will deliver in early November at the Openstack Summit in Paris.

Here's the abstract for the talk....

"Writing a new application for the cloud allows you to use cloud abstraction libraries like Fog, Libcloud, or Jcloud for multi-cloud compatibility. But what if you have legacy applications that need to be moved to the cloud, but that are not practical to re-write? Containers to the rescue! Using Docker containers, legacy app workloads can be encapsulated into a portable runtime that can work the same regardless what cloud you run them on, and when combined with Libswarm/Swarmd, you can run your application ona variety of target Platforms, including OpenStack based public clouds. The same containers you run in public clouds can also be used in your own OpenStack private cloud."

Note: This UUASC-LA meetup occurs on the second Wednesdat of the month for this time only.

RSVP

If you plan to attend please RSVP at our meetup site

http://www.meetup.com/UUASC26/events/206789392/ so we can properly scale the snacks and chairs.

About the Location:

PARKING: Plentiful parking is available at the Howard Hughes Promenade across the street for a $3. Avoid the parking structure behind 6080 Center Drive - it's crazy expensive.

SECURITY: there is a security desk in the lobby, in case they ask, let them know you're going to Q's office at suite 925.
