iWeb is invested in the OpenStack project and community, our public cloud offer runs on it and we’re working to add more features and contribute back to the project, just like we did in 2013 when we became the top contributor to OpenStack in Canada.

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.

Come learn with us, register now! Help spread the word, tweet, post on Facebook, call your friends, it will be fun!
