Martin Paulo: An introduction to OpenStack

Martin Paulo

Martin Paulo is a software developer with VeRSI (the Victorian eResearch Strategic Initiative). Way back when Martin started out writing assembly for embedded systems. From there, via grid programming, he made the move to more conventional software development, as a Java developer in the financial services arena. At VeRSI Martin has worked on and with the NeCTAR (National eResearch Collaboration Tools and Resources) research cloud: possibly the largest and most complex OpenStack deployment in Australia.


OpenStack is open source software that provides a cloud computing platform. From its early origins as a small Nasa project, OpenStack is rapidly gaining broad industry acceptance. Its ongoing development is guided by the OpenStack Foundation, a foundation backed by many key technology companies. In this talk Martin will provide an introduction to the concepts underlying OpenStack, and show how you can get going with your own personal OpenStack deployment.
