Open Source Cloud Computing Forum Agenda Posted

July 13, 2009

by Cloud Computing Team

The Open Source Cloud Computing Forum, a day-long virtual forum hosted by Red Hat, will gather together open source cloud computing developers for a day of technical presentations that cover the capabilities and challenges facing the development, management and deployment of open source cloud computing configurations. It is generally agreed that open source software is already taking a leadership role in the world of cloud computing, but much work remains to be done.

Today, we’ve posted the presentation agenda for the forum. The day will comprise a dozen short, high-impact presentations, enabling attendees to gain an appreciation of the breadth of ongoing development with open source clouds. We hope that the forum will act as a catalyst for open source communities to work together and grow, and encourage participation in the development of open source cloud computing.

The agenda is as follows:
