Let's Celebrate The Spirit of FOSS Again With Open Source India 2012

BENGALURU, October 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The 9th Edition of Open Source India (OSI), Asia's Leading Open Source Convention, Will be Held in Bengaluru From October 12-14, 2012

For all the open source buffs, this is sure to send your spirits soaring. The 9th edition of Open Source India, Asia's leading Open Source Convention, will be held at NIMHANS Convention Center, Bengaluru, from October 12-14, 2012. The open source conference is aimed at fostering and giving a fillip to the Open Source ecosystem in the subcontinent.

Started as Linux Asia in 2004, OSI has been at the helm of bringing together the Open Source industry and the community in the last 8 years. This year it aims to take this event a notch higher by focusing on the Open Source ecosystem in Asia, and more specifically, in India.

Sharing his insight on OSI 2012, Ramesh Chopra, Vice Chairman, EFY Enterprises Pvt. Ltd., said, "OSI 2012 is likely to be much bigger and better as compared to the previous editions. We want it to offer something for everyone, including software developers, IT managers and heads, CXOs, policy makers, system administrators, project managers, delivery experts, academia, government and the open source community."

OSI 2012 will comprise various events, which will run in parallel on all three days of the show. The aim is to focus on different user segments of the open source arena and ensure that there is something for everyone.

The last edition of the show received overwhelming response from both industry and the community. OSI 2012 will be no less! Android will be one of the biggest attractions at OSI this year. Android is the newest and the most happening name in the open source world. Google's open source operating system is gaining new heights not only the global market but is also catching big in the Indian market. While the speakers will touch upon topics like 'Building Next Generation Applications for Android on Intel Architecture', 'Android Platform customization', 'Ruboto - Ruby on Android' and 'Mobile Application Testing', experts will also provide workshop on 'App Development for Android'.

A special track on Kernel called 'Kernel Days' will be another attraction point for the developers. Topics like 'Debugging a Linux kernel & Application using Lauterbach' will be covered by experts in this track. You will also get a fairly good knowledge in IT Infrastructure, Web Apps and Cloud. In fact, open source in cloud will form a major part of discussion at OSI. Talks on 'OpenStack Cloud Services', 'Future of cloud', and 'How to choose the best cloud solution' will be helpful for the CXOs to decide on the kind of technology they should opt for depending upon their needs.

OSI 2012 holds a lot for academia/students as well. Special tracks will be organised for this segment to tell them the importance of certifications and importance of open source in educational sector. For more information, visit http://www.osidays.com.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances ...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities – ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations.
