Eric Frank  /  Feb 7, 2012  / 

On February 2nd, Piston Cloud sponsored the second SFBay OpenStack event of the year. About 75 bright-eyed stackers showed up to eat delicious tacos from Tacolicious, drink refreshing California Kolsh from Magnolia Brewery, and learn more about OpenStack.

The event, entitled “Ceph Lords,” was graciously hosted by DreamHost in their San Francisco office. You can view photos from the event in our Flickr set.

Our first set of speakers for the evening were DreamHost’s own Ben Cherian, Tommi Virtanen and Carl Perry. They gave a great introduction to Ceph and DreamHost’s object service deployment.

Later, Piston Cloud Co-founder and CTO Christopher MacGown discussed OpenStack block storage with Ceph.

The food, the beer, the friends, the spontaneous breakdancing… ok, not the last one… made an amazing night. Let’s do it again sometime!
