Dell Crowbar Deep Dive: Behind the scenes of a cloud infrastructure deployer
Dell Crowbar is an open source cloud deployer that leverages and extends Opscode Chef to build bare metal clouds. The project is Apache 2 licensed, hardware agnostic and includes deployment suites for both OpenStack and Hadoop. This session, led by Greg Althaus, will show you how to operate Crowbar and then dive under the covers to show how it operates, interoperates with Chef, and can be extended. In addition to talking about Crowbar, Greg will be able to field questions about deploying OpenStack and Hadoop. This is the most in depth public session we’ve ever offered about Crowbar.
