Announcing the Open Source Storage Summit


EMC {Code} to produce events dedicated to topics in open source storage, from storage controllers and platforms to hyperconverged and persistent storage for cloud native apps.

This week at the LinuxCon Japan event, EMC{Code} will launch the first of three Open Source Storage Summits in collaboration with the Linux Foundation. The Open Source Storage Summit is a one-day event co-located at each LinuxCon this year (Japan, North America and Europe) with the first one in Japan on Friday, July 15.

In the broad spectrum of the enterprise technology industry, storage has been one area that has long resisted open source innovation. Some have speculated this is due to the role of risk mitigation in enterprise storage. However, with the rise of cloud native technologies and public cloud infrastructures, the storage industry has seen the first wave of open source innovation, leading to great change in the open source storage management and platform fronts.

The Open Source Storage Summit is an attempt to give attendees a view into all the open source change happening right now in the storage industry. We will feature speakers and topics from a variety of open source communities related to storage, including EMC {code}’s own REX-Ray and CoprHD projects, as well as Ceph, OpenStack, and several others.

Whether you’re interested in speaking or attending, join us at the Open Source Storage Summit, and let’s collaborate on open source storage. If you want to plan your own Open Source Storage Summit or Meetup, let us know in the comments or tweet us @emccode or @johnmark.
