The promise of cloud computing is that of virtually unlimited computing power that expands and contracts with the needs of the user. As the number of virtual servers increase, it's unlikely that IT will be able to keep up unless they have tools that can scale and automate the management of these dynamic systems.
In his session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Mark Hinkle, Vice President of Community at Cloud.com, will cover four disciplines of systems management: patching and provisioning, configuration, orchestration and monitoring. Specific recommendations will be made as to which open source tools are best suited for managing scalable cloud infrastructure and can be combined to automate management tasks as open source toolchains.
Mark Hinkle is the Vice President of Community at Cloud.com, the maker of the open source cloud computing management software, CloudStack He also is along-time open source expert and advocate. He is a co-founder of both the Open Source Management Consortium and the Desktop Linux Consortium. He has served as Editor-in-Chief for both LinuxWorld Magazine and Enterprise Open Source Magazine. Hinkle is also the author of the book, "Windows to Linux Business Desktop Migration" (Thomson, 2006). His blog on open source, technology, and new media can be found at http://www.socializedsoftware.com.
