Last year UQAM’s students organized the first OpenStack Montreal meetup, sponsored by iWeb, eNovance. The results were very positive and now we’re joining forces again to organize the 2nd OpenStack Montreal meetup at UQAM, which will take place on March 17th on room SH-3620, starting at 18:00. This time we chose a theme for the event, we’ll be talking about Storage options in OpenStack with two main talks: Object Storage 101 and Ceph 101, followed by a Q&A session. This time it will be sponsored by iWeb, eNovance and Savoir-faire Linux.
