SUSE Soars to New Heights at the Open Source Summit in Vancouver – Literally!
Want to know the latest about enterprise open source solutions from SUSE? Come to the Open Source Summit in Vancouver, August 29-31 to find out! Oh – and if you have ever dreamed of seeing the beautiful Pacific Northwest from the air, be sure to stop by the SUSE booth (402) and try to win tickets for an incredible Vancouver Harbor Sea Plane Tour! Read on to find out how to check this amazing opportunity off your bucket list!
SUSE recently released SUSE Linux Enterprise 15, which is being heralded as the first truly multimodal OS that can bridge the traditional and software-defined infrastructure. Alan Clark’s Thursday morning keynote will be a highlight of the Open Source Summit as he explains why a multimodal OS is a critical foundation piece to a software-defined infrastructure. Alan is uniquely qualified to discuss this topic, as the Chairman of the OpenStack Foundation, a board member of the Linux Foundation and a Director in the CTO Office at SUSE. And if you’d like to get more detail about the topic, be sure to attend a breakout session presented by Kai Dupke, SUSE Senior Product Manager on Friday morning at 11:00 AM.
While you’re checking out interesting sessions at the #OSSummit, be sure to catch these other great members of the SUSE team who will be presenting:
- The State of Rootless Containers, by Aleksa Sarai, Sr. Software Engineer at SUSE & Akihiro Suda, NTT (Friday, August 31 at 11:00am)
- Transactional Updates with Btrfs and RPM – Ignaz Forster, Research Engineer at SUSE (Friday, August 31 at 4:50pm)
In between great sessions at the Summit, a stop by the SUSE booth is a must! You’ll be able to talk to SUSE experts about a variety of amazing enterprise open source solutions, including:
- openSUSE (Leap, Tumbleweed and the Kubic project) You can even meet one of my favorite guys – Richard Brown, Chairman of the openSUSE Board!
- SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 – the world’s first truly multimodal OS
- SUSE CaaS Platform – container management solution based on Kubernetes
- SUSE Cloud Application Platform – application delivery platform based on Cloud Foundry
- SUSE Enterprise Storage (based on Ceph) – including a very cool demo storage cluster built entirely with Arm-based Raspberry Pi’s by Sean Rickerd, one of our Canadian field engineers (come meet him too and talk about the SUSE band…)
Come spend some time with us to learn more about these solutions and to get a bite to eat! We’ll have snacks for you during the open lunch break, as well as pizza and beer during the Welcome Reception. And of course there’s always great SUSE swag available… which brings me back to the Vancouver Harbor Sea Plane Tours!
Vancouver is situated on one of the most beautiful ocean inlets in the world, covered with towering pine forests and lined with rugged rocky shores. It is beautiful up close, but a view from the air is absolutely breath-taking. SUSE has chartered flights on Thursday and Friday during the Summit to take some of the lucky winners from our booth on an aerial tour of the harbor. The flight will depart and land right in front of the Vancouver Convention Center! Scratch off a drawing card in the booth (only one a day!) to see if you can be one of these lucky winners. Whether you win a flight or some other great SUSE swag, we look forward to seeing you at the #OSSummit!
