Heat: Orchestrating multiple cloud applications on OpenStack using templates
This talk provides an overview of Heat, a peek inside the CloudFormation template language, and a demonstration of heat technologies. Heat provides an Apache 2 licensed CloudFormation orchestration engine that orchestrates cloud infrastructure resources such as storage, networking, instances, and applications into a repeatable running environment for OpenStack IAAS platforms. Heat also provides several advanced features such as authentication, nested stacks, high availability, and auto-scaling which are demonstrated.
Angus is a developer on the Heat Project and is also involved
with linux clustering (maintaining libqb and helping with corosync).
Steve Baker is a contributor to Heat and some OpenStack projects. In a previous child-free life he was a contributor to the GStreamer multimedia framework.
In his spare time he experiments with altered states by falling off his mountain bike and drinking the beer he brews.
