UTSA hosts Open BigCloud Symposium and OCP Workshop May 7-8

22 Apr 2014 San Antonio - The University of Texas at San Antonio will host the inaugural Open BigCloud Symposium and Open Compute Project Workshop May 7-8 in the HEB University Center Ballroom (HUC 1.104) on the UTSA Main Campus. The symposium will bring together the nation's brightest minds in academia, industry and research to discuss the future of Cloud computing and Big Data. One highlight will be the official grand opening of the UTSA Open Compute Certification and Solutions Laboratory, the first laboratory of its kind in North America.

Participants will also explore bringing the Cloud to the Enterprise, models and benefits, Cloud Operation Model (DevOps), Open Technologies and best practices including software and hardware disaggregation, Cloud and BigData for Scientific and Engineering workloads.

The two-day event will feature more than 20 speakers representing academia and the leading technology industry companies addressing a variety of topics including Open Compute hardware, OpenStack software and Software Defined Networks.

"We believe Open Compute, OpenStack and Software Defined Data Center are going to be the next computing platforms to support all of the emerging Cloud and Big Data technologies", stated C. Mauli Agrawal, UTSA vice president for research. "These partnerships with OpenStack, ZeroVM and Open Compute communities will create research and educational leadership opportunities for UTSA, San Antonio and across Texas."

Scheduled presenters include: Graham Weston, Chairman and CEO, Rackspace; Frank Frankovsky, President and Chairman of Open Compute Project Foundation; Cameron Haight, Research Vice-President and Chief of Research Infrastructure & Operations, Gartner; Rob Vietzke, Vice President of Network Services, Internet 2; Dan Stanzione, Acting Director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center, The University of Texas at Austin; Paul Rad, Director of Cloud and BigData Laboratory, The University of Texas at San Antonio; Scott Midkiff, Vice President for Information Technology and CIO, Virginia Tech; Scott Mitchell, Sr. Vice President, Stream Data Centers.
