BERLIN, Germany, March 13 — The OpenStack community and prospective users will gather May 24 for the inaugural DACH Day, co-located with LinuxTag 2013, to share expertise about the open source cloud platform. The event is co-organized by hastexo, sponsored by the OpenStack Foundation and includes speakers from across the OpenStack community, both in the DACH region and around the globe.
OpenStack DACH Day 2013 will provide attendees with firsthand insights from OpenStack developers and enterprises that are successfully using OpenStack in production environments for both private and public clouds. The lineup includes speakers from industry leaders including:
OpenStack is gaining traction in Europe with more than 1,000 European Individual Members of the Foundation and support from corporate members and sponsors, including Alcatel-Lucent, Bull, Canonical, Cloudwatt, eNovance and Xemeti. Service providers Cloudup, eNovance, Rackspace and StackScale are operating OpenStacks clouds in Europe, and a member from CERN was elected to the Board of Directors.
"We're very excited to sponsor an event that supports the vibrant OpenStack community in the DACH region, where there is such strong support for open source," said Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation. "OpenStack users in the region tell us legal drivers such as data sovereignty, attractive economics and a vibrant community of contributors are bringing them to OpenStack, which gives them the ability to compete in the global IaaS market."
The event is organized by LinuxTag in cooperation with hastexo, a professional services company based in Austria with a significant OpenStack customer base in the region. hastexo CEO Florian Haas commented, "The DACH OpenStack community is rapidly picking up speed. We now have OpenStack user groups meeting regularly in Switzerland, Austria and Germany, and new ones are springing up across the region. It's time we bring together OpenStack users from across the region in a larger conference."
