Presented by:


from SUSE

As member of the ISV Engineering team I am the Public Cloud Architect and the Tech Lead for the SUSE-IBM Software Integration Center. In addition to working with the IBM software group I assist other ISVs with respect to Integrated Systems and technical questions related to SUSE Linux.

Away from ISV Engineering I am an openSUSE Board member, I contribute to the KIWI project, openSUSE, a number of other open source cloud related projects, and am an active member of the LSB work group.

The Cloud and Public Cloud computing are all the rage. The Public Cloud has somewhat moved passed the hype cycle, which these days is clearly dominated by Docker, and is moving into the adoption cycle. While almost everyone uses a cloud already this talk will take a deeper look at the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) setup of the Public Cloud.

openSUSE images are available in the major Public Cloud frameworks, Amazon, Azure, and Google Compute Engine. A brief overview of the 3 major providers is followed by a look at how things get there, the image build and surrounding maintenance and upkeep. With the background of the previous two sections the third section of the talk will focus on what can only be labeled as the "new" vendor lock in. We will take a look at the services provided by Public Cloud providers and how these services, while generally great and very useful, create a vendor lock in scenario.
