Home Business IT Open Source LCA 2013 to hold three cloud computing mini-conferences

The Australian national Linux Conference has announced its first three mini-conferences for 2013 - and all are to do with cloud computing.

The conference, being held at the Australian National University in Canberra from January 28 to February 2, will have two days of mini-conferences and three days devoted to the main event.

The three mini-conferences announced are titled Cloud Infrastructure, Distributed Storage and High Availability; OpenStack; and MobileFOSS.

The first will focus on the building of cloud systems, right from basic infrastructure to the building applications atop IaaS (Infrastructure as a service).

OpenStack is a project begun by NASA and Rackspace and is now supported by a number of companies which are either predominantly using open source software or else using only open source software for their businesses. This mini-conf will look at developments in the project and also different strategies for deployment.

The third mini-conference, MobileFOSS, will cover the mobile space and how open source can grow along with it as it develops.
