OSDC 2018 Recap: The Archive is online


 
Open Source Data Conference| JUNE 12 – 13, 2018 | BERLIN
Hello Open Source Lovers,
as we know all of you are most of the time focused on the things to come: An upcoming release or a future-oriented project you are working on. But as Plato said, “twice and thrice over, as they say, good is it to repeat and review what is good.”

OSDC Archive is online, giving us the occasion to do so.

OSDC 2018 was a blast! Austria, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Czech Republic and the USA: 130 participants from all over the world came to Berlin to exchange thoughts and discuss the future of open source data center solutions.
„Extending Terraform“, „Monitoring Kubernetes at scale“, „Puppet on the Road to Pervasive Automation“ and „Migrating to the Cloud“ were just a few of many, trailblazing topics: We are overwhelmed by the content and quality of speakers, who presented a really interesting range of technologies and use cases, experience reports and different approaches. No matter what topic, all of the 27 high-level speakers had one goal: Explain why and how and share their lessons learned. And by doing so they all contributed to Simplifying Complex Infrastructures with Open Source.
Besides the lectures the attendees joined in thrilling discussions and a phenomenal evening event with a mesmerizing view over the city of Berlin.
A big thank you to our speakers and sponsors and to all participants, who made the event special. We are already excited about next year’s event – OSDC 2019, on May 14 to 15 in Berlin. Save the date!
And now, take a moment, get yourself a cup of coffee, lean back and recap the 2018 conference. Have a look at videos and slides and photos.

OSDC 2017 – What a great week full of open source!

Over the weekend, we caught up on missed sleep and we were really happy about the successful Open Source Data Center Conference last week in Berlin.
The OSDC 2017 began with our workshop day on Tuesday with „Graylog-Centralized Log Management“, „Mesos Marathon – Orchestrating Docker Containers“ and „Terraform – Infrastructure as Code“.
On Wednesday and Thursday attendees could join 23 interesting talks on case studies, the latest developments and best practices. CONTAINERS AND MICROSERVICES | CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT | TESTING, METICS AND ANALYSIS and TOOLS&INFRASTRUCTURE were forming the core of the conference! Details about the talks, you can get in Michi’s and Dirk’s Blogposts.
On Wednesday evening, we went to the Umspannwerk Ost. There was much sun, and so we could all sit outside and discuss the exciting days. Furthermore, it was enough time for networking, establishing contacts and becoming more familiar with the open source community!
After the conference was gone on Thursday, we were happy to meet you all in Berlin and also a little bit sad, because three exciting conference days came to an end.
At this point, it is time to say a cordial THANK YOU!
Thanks to our speakers who made us laugh and who gave us so much knowledge!
Thanks to our sponsors for the wonderful support and your confidence!
Thanks to our attendees for making the OSDC unique!
We’ll hope to see you all next year! The date for 2018 is already fixed.
The pictures, slides and videos of the OSDC will be available soon!

OSDC 2017 – How it went on!

After the talks on Wednesday were finished, two OSDC-VIP buses stood in front of the MOA Hotel. After all attendees found their seats, we drove threw the whole city and finally reached the Umspannwerk Ost.
Bright Sunshine, perfect. As in the last year, there was a huge variety of culinary delights. Due to the bright sunshine till the evening hours, most of us sat outside the listed building, which is the oldest substation in Berlin. With some soft drinks and yummy food (look at the pictures), the evening ran its course.
As a little surprise for the attendees, we organised a kicker. Not a standard kicker, but a kicker for more than four persons. It was really funny!
And so the hours passed until the third shuttle VIP-Bus brought all of us back to the conference hotel. After a very short night, the talks for today started on time. What the talks are about, you can find out in Michi’s Blogpost after the conference has been finished.
For our events team, it’s now the final spurt, before the post processing may start tomorrow. We hope, all attendees have an interesting second conference day and a save journey home!

OSDC 2017 – How it all began

On Monday evening, there was a group of some very excited NETWAYS guys, who arrived in Berlin to prepare the OSDC. After the rooms were ready for the workshops on Tuesday, the pizza for our busy bees was definetely rewarded. Then it was still very late and so they all fell into a deep deep sleep before the bewitched bell was ringing again. Then at 10 o’ clock, our Workshops started. There were „Graylog – Centralized Log Management“ by Jan Doberstein and Bernd Ahlers, „Terraform – Infrastructure as Code“ by Seth Vargo and „Mesos Marathon – Orchestrating DOcker Containers“ by Gabriel Hartmann. The attendees learned a lot and we hope theres a little space left for the talks on Wednesday are Thursday! Then the NETWAYS – Crew started with the last preparations for Wednesday and then the first conference day was already gone! After a joyful night with our beloved Tele-Inder (classic Berlin Späti), the conference started with Bernd’s Opening and talks. What the talks are about, you can read in Dirks Blogpost! But we’ll only say this much: It was equally interesting new things and fun! ? The pictures will follow!
