Billions of devices, trillions of dollars of opportunity. Building on successive waves of Web, mobile, and cloud, and powered by a revolution of cheap powerful hardware that is ever connected, the promise of the Internet of Things has finally arrived. It’s here, it’s real and it is creating untold opportunity. Look all around and you see companies starting to deliver smart connected products and solutions to market. At the same time the IoT is emergent and dynamic, patterns are developing, models are forming and standards are getting established.

What this means for the world’s leading technologists is that they must build for that future today, they need to do it together and they need the power of open. The opportunity is too massive for any one contributor or company. The new OpenIoT Summit is the first event of its kind, bringing together embedded developers, application developers, systems architects and firmware developers to learn, share and advance the technical work required for the future of IoT.

Unlike existing IoT events, IoT Summit if for technologists and by technologists. Experts from the world’s leading companies and most important open source projects will present the information you need to lead and succeed successful IoT developments so that you can bring smart connected products and solutions to market.

It's no secret that OpenStack deployment can be, at best, a challenge. (At worst it can be a little like trying to perform brain surgery while simultaneously walking a tightrope and tossing a pizza.)

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be this way. Converged Infrastructure provides a way for you to receive a pre-deployed OpenStack cloud, along with the validated, pre-configured hardware that goes with it. These appliances let you go from 0 to secure private cloud in the minimum amount of time.

Want to know more? Join us on Tuesday, April 5, as Gordon Rothstein of FusionStorm and Greg Loughmiller of Mirantis discuss the pros and cons of OpenStack appliances with OpenStack:Unlocked's Nick Chase. They'll discuss:

  • What Converged Infrastructure is and how it relates to appliances
  • How Converged Infrastructure simplifies the OpenStack deployment process
  • What's involved in integrating an OpenStack deployment process
  • How to choose an appliance without choosing vendor lock-in
  • What to look for in a Converged Infrastructure vendor relationship

We know you're busy -- that's why this shortcut to value matters. Can't make it on the day? Don't let that stop you. All registrants will get the video of the webinar, so sign up today, before you forget!

Data, file systems and storage are at the heart of today’s computing environment, with innovation needed to accommodate the need for more data storage capability, at faster speeds with today’s newest hardware. Linux has been at the center of these advances with its widespread use in cloud computing, big data and other data-intensive computing workloads. The ongoing expansion of these cloud services, distributed file storage, and IT automation is increasing the need for data storage systems that are robust, accessible, and scalable. Additionally, hardware vendors have recognized the importance of Linux with many working directly in the Linux community to develop cutting-edge storage hardware, helping transform Linux into a leader in the storage industry.

Vault brings together the leading developers and users in file systems and storage in the Linux kernel and related projects to forge a path to continued innovation and education. By co-locating with the invite-only and exclusive Linux Storage, Filesystem and Memory Management Summit, Vault taps into the expertise of the developers leading these innovations while offering a general technical conference that is open to everyone, creating a place where companies on the leading edge can network with users and developers to advance computing.
