Schedule for Open Infrastructure Shanghai now released


It may feel like summer is still in full swing, but before you know it, we’ll be facing those shorter days that autumn (or fall, depending on your geographic location and/or linguistic preference) brings. To brighten up these shorter days, many in the open source community will be looking forward to the Open Infrastructure Summit (sometimes shortened to OIS) in Shanghai. The first of these summits to be held in mainland China, this is an exciting event as it will bring together some of the finest minds in open source from around the world in one location.

Shanghai Surprise (or not)

It probably won’t come as a surprise that there are a wide variety of topics being covered in the sessions at the summit. With topics as diverse as hyper-converged infrastructure at the edge, to using encryption to secure your cloud, to machine learning, 5G technologies, Ceph storage orchestration with Rook, distributed cloud, SDN, NFV, Kubernetes, CI/CD and much more, there really is something for (almost) everyone.

Matthew Johns I have over 20 years' experience in the IT, cloud and hosting industry gained in a variety of roles spanning project management to product release and product marketing. I’m responsible for product marketing for SUSE OpenStack Cloud, and have been working with OpenStack since it was released in 2010. Outside of work, I enjoy running, cycling, great beer (craft, cask, keg - call it what you like as long as it tastes good), spending time with my family, playing the piano and charity fundraising – I’ve been supporting the Movember Foundation since 2006, and have run multiple races, climbed mountains and cycled around the UK for many charities over the years.
