Okay it’s already the 4th day of the OGF. but nevertheless I wanted to blog about day 3. Not much was going on – Some interesting presentations about Cloud computing and GreenIT. Besides that networking was more or less the thing to do. Talk to people, get ideas and share thoughts about Cloud and Grid computing.
The BoF session which was hosted at OGF was a success. Over 100 people showed up and the interest was great. Overall the session went well and the Idea to create an Interface for Service Providers/Users was accepted. For more details and the slides see: http://ogf.org/gf/event_schedule/index.php?id=1567
Some more pictures from the session (view from the stage) and some pictures from lunch
Second day of the Open Grid Forum Meeting just started. Currently there are presentations about ‘Grid Application Experiences’. After the break at 11am it is time for the Cloud Interface API BoF session. So more information is going to follow. For now some photos from yesterday evening and this morning.
Today the Open Grid Forum opened it’s gates here in Catania, Italy. For now nothing real spectacular has been going on. Some presentations about great software solutions like Gridway or Opennebula. The Keynotes and opening talks have yet to start after lunch.
The location is quite great (Attached some pictures). seems to be an old industrial area which they reused as a conference and cultural center. A cinema is also integrate. Quite nice…
