Welcome To OpenStack Nation (Delhi NCR)

On 19th September, Stackers from Delhi NCR gathered at Faculty of Engineering, Jamia Millia University to celebrate the launch of OpenStack foundation. Perhaps the start of a new era which could possibly redefine the open standards and open cloud technologies. OpenStack foundation started with  5600 members and 10 million dollars in funding. Early morning we received some very nice slides from Lauren Sell describing everything in detail about the foundation. We started the show with the introduction on OpenStack foundation and then later we moved on to describe openstack software in detail.

The star of this meet up was Mr. Ritesh Nanda ( Cloud Architect at Ericsson ). He gave very detailed insight to all the components of OpenStack during the presentation. He went on to give a live demo of Quantum and then he described every piece of it in quiet detail. He started with introductory details on Network as a Service and then asked a very important question "Why OpenStack needed Quantum". A live demo of Quantum given by him added flavor to the party.
Apart from the folks at different organizations , we were also joined by Cloud Researchers at the meet up, we gave plenty of introductory details on OpenStack, What makes OpenStack ecosystem, Different projects within the ecosystem, their functionality and whats more to be added to the current ecosystem. We discussed every project (Nova, Swift, Ceilometer, Cinder, Keystone, Quantum, Glance, Horizon). Demo of OpenStack dashboard was also given during the meet up. In fact during the Q&A session , we went on to show how in practical we can use the OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon) to solve some problems. We took the questions and we showed them the solution right there on the screen. Very detailed discussion took place over interoperability, features which should be there within the OpenStack, then there were questions on security groups , placement control and multi tenancy isolation.
Apart from Quantum we also discussed Ceilometer in great detail, Why the community felt the need of this project, who are folks behind this project. We described its architecture and its working in detail using a very nice picture available on while answering a question on security features  provided by OpenStack. We went on to give them a live demo of some available security features. After the meet up we talked with the folks what they expect in the next meet up and what things we should cover in future. Slides from meet up are available at:

  4. Thanks for the ideas you have contributed here. Furthermore, I believe there are some factors which keep your car insurance policy premium down. One is, to bear in mind buying vehicles that are inside good listing of car insurance businesses. Cars which can be expensive will be more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also in line with the value of your car or truck, so the higher priced it is, then higher the particular premium you make payment for. continue reading this
