Piston Cloud Sponsors “Back At It” San Francisco OpenStack™ Event (videos)
This past Thursday, we started the year with the second largest SFBay OpenStack event ever! This was an extremely exciting result for the first event that I’ve facilitated, thanks to my Piston Cloud team. In addition to the hacking meetups we regularly host, we’re already working on presenting many more events this year.
Thank you #sfstackers for a great event last night. We enjoyed hosting you!

Our guest speaker was Kieran Lal, Technical Director of Business Development at Acquia, with “Moving 200 Music Artists to the Cloud“. He talked about the ten-year ascent of the Drupal community, and how meeting an industry’s needs (in this case the entertainment industry) improves the Open Source ecosystem. Kieran shared with us the story of how open-source Drupal unseated a proprietary SaaS solution.
Kieran was followed by Paul Lappas of Piston Cloud, and Andre Pech of Arista Networks with “Hands-free OpenStack scale-out with pentOS and the Arista 7124T”.
The setting, the wine, the speakers, and the huge prize – but most of all the attendees – made for a fantastic evening! Thank you.
