Subject NYC CloudStack User Group Meetup #2
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2013 12:17:01 GMT
I reached out to Chris Swenson from WebMD after running into him at an event about hosting
the 2nd CloudStack User Group meetup.  He obliged with gusto and we're tentatively looking
at the first week of September.

The questions I wanted to pose are:
- Who should present?
- What should they cover?

Since I'm starting the feedback chain – my take:  in the course of my day job on the commercial
side, I recently met with Redapt and Basho in NYC and they have both expressed an interest
in presenting @ a user group meeting.  Additionally, Chris shared that they are talking with
Rackware &confirmed with Rackware that they are interested in sharing how they are looking
to integrate with Apache CloudStack.  We all know what SolidFire has been doing with the storage
plugin in Apache CloudStack 4.2.  Then from the top level/cloud management layer you currently
have ScalR, RightScale and Dell/Enstratius. It got me to thinking that since CloudStack's
main issue is mind share, perhaps it would be important to not only have regular user group
meetups, from a brand awareness perspective, but also to serve as further validation of what
we already know – CloudStack just works & has a growing number of integrations.

Anyhow, thought I'd table this & start the feedback chain of actionable ideas.

Any thoughts?
