OpenStack Summit May 12-15, 2014 Atlanta – Atlanta Event Center at Opera

Join Piston Cloud at the Summit for an interactive summit about the new OpenStack solution. This event features dynamic keynote speakers, hands on workshops, sponsor and evening events and so much more!

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface.

The Sponsors Demo Theater will showcase all of the components for both public and private cloud solutions, and highly interactive sessions about networking, operations, security will be held daily.

The USDA Open Stack story

In the beginning…

The USDA National Information Technology Center traces its lineage back to 1957 with the mission of reducing IT costs by pooling resources of multiple USDA agencies.
Our existing virtual hosting environment wasn’t designed to be a Cloud. It was built in continuance of our traditional mission – share stuff to keep computing (hosting) costs down. On top of that, we built in everything that govt customers are required to do; layers of security, compliance, backups, DR, etc.
Then our customers started asking about this Cloud thing. They were seeing their private industry peers using fast, agile, and cheap hosting services to change their IT processes; they failed-fast, iterated quickly, and spent less to do it than they could even in their own relatively new virtualized hosting environments. Our customers wanted to use the same methodologies to accomplish their public sector missions.

Enter OpenStack!


• Hallway convos around this new OpenStack thing, realization that this could be just what NITC needs to offer real cloud services. Zach believes!
• Zach wagers his parking space for 5 minutes with NITC’s top guy to talk OpenStack.
• A team is selected evaluate Zach’s ideas. Leadership’s vision is aligned, as evidenced by the unlimited access to personnel for the team.
• Excitement over the idea of OpenStack and what it means for hosting centers like NITC.


• We started looking into what all could be done w/ OpenStack, and what our wants/needs were for our prospective cloud customers.
• Feature Greed sets it! We over-ran the docs pretty badly.
• But we kept at it. Late nights, re-installs, 500 ways not to build a cloud discovered.
• Stayed about 2 days behind Nicira NVP (now VMware NSX) guys during our Quantum build.
The Cathedral is completely freaked out.


• Main feature collection working – VMs being deployed form Horizon. Much rejoicing.
• Demo delivered to exec leadership – overwhelmingly positive reception.
• Direction from leaders to build the real deal.
• Beers


• We needed stability and sustainability, and we couldn’t hire like RackSpace. So we looked around for some vendors that seemed to understand our vision.
• In our search we arrived at VMware NSX for our network
• We were bowled-over by Piston’s approach to provisioning and operational philosophy,
• And Silicon Mechanics’ approach to hardware lifecycle was a perfect fit with Piston.
• Now we had to figure out how to get them all together.
• So we brought them out to Kansas City for some BBQ from a gas station
