With one production service already available at Rackspace and another on in the works at HP, cloud database services are quickly changing the landscape around OpenStack Compute. Join Rackspace and HP for a lively discussion on how we are adding value to OpenStack with database services (Project RedDwarf). As more companies move their applications and data to the cloud, it is becoming increasingly difficult to manage and maintain database systems on default virtual servers. RedDwarf simplifies database management in the cloud while providing a model for extensible service deployment that will be used to deliver not only database services, but also other services in the future. In this session you will get a chance to hear about RedDwarf’s progress and future plans and learn how you can become active in the community.
