Miniconf on Cloud Server Management (Chennai)

On costs, scaling and securing cloud servers

About the event

Cloud server management brings with it as many challenges as it offers conveniences. It is time to unbundle questions about:

  1. Resource allocation: how best to allocate manpower, time, money and infrastructure capacity?
  2. Scaling: how best to utilize capacity in the present, and factors involved in planning for the future?
  3. Security: which scenarios must you plan for, and how best to secure your data, applications and systems?

Who should submit a talk

If you:

  1. Work with cloud servers,
  2. Plan and manage infrastructure,
  3. Make decisions on technology and architecture for your organization,

submit a talk for any of the three events in this series.

Format

Each event is single-day, with about 4-5 short and long talks, 2-3 demos, one BOF, and a three-hour workshop on configuration management.

We are accepting proposals for:

  • 30-minute talks – which cover conceptual topics and case studies.
  • Crisp 15-minute talks – on new tools and techniques in cloud server management.
  • 5-10 min demos.
  • Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions, led by 1-3 persons from the community, on a relevant topic.
  • 3-hour hands-on workshops on configuration management.

Selection process

Proposals will be shortlisted and reviewed by an editorial team consisting of practitioners from the community. Make sure your abstract contains the following information:

  1. Key insights you will present, or takeaways for the audience.
  2. Overall flow of the content.

You must submit links to videos of talks you have delivered in the past, or record and upload a two-min self-recorded video explaining what your talk is about, and why is it relevant for this event.

Also consider submitting links to:

  1. A detailed outline, or
  2. Mindmap, explaining the structure of the talk, or
  3. Draft slides

along with your proposal.

Honorarium for selected speakers; travel grants

Selected speakers and workshop instructors will receive an honorarium of Rs. 3,000 each, at the end of their talk. Confirmed speakers and instructors also get a pass to the conference and networking dinner. We do not provide free passes for speakers’ colleagues and spouses.

Travel grants are available for domestic speakers. We evaluate each case on its merits, giving preference to women, people of non-binary gender, and Africans.
If you require a grant, request it when you submit your proposal in the field where you add your location. Rootconf Miniconf is funded through ticket purchases and sponsorships; travel grant budgets vary.

Cloud Agnostic Webscale

Submitted Nov 2, 2017

The talk is intended to give participants an overview on how to build webscale architecture with a cloud agnostic approach. Cloud agnostic means no dependency on any underlying component on the cloud player. This ensures that infrastructure is inherently scalable and you have deep insights into how things work to make better scaling decisions while also controlling cost

Outline

  • Introduction to cloud Agnostic approach to computing
  • why is webscale important and how to design one from groundup
  • How does being cloud agnostic help in scaleup ?
  • Reference architecture for a cloud agnostic strategy with scale builtin
  • Multicloud strategies with cloud agnostic approach
  • Q & A

Speaker bio

CTO @E2E Networks, i am responsible for running the cloud operations and various initiative revolving around this. Am a firm believer in Free and open source software and we at E2E Networks have leveraged our extensive experience in open source to give scalable solutions on cloud agnostic setups
