La direction informatique de l’Université de Strasbourg dispose d’un environnement de virtualisation composé de 700 machines virtuelles hébergées sur une centaine d’hyperviseurs. L’administration est faite à l’aide de virt-manager et de scripts python développés en interne. Suite aux nouvelles demandes de ses utilisateurs, la direction informatique a décider de mettre en place une solution de cloud privé. Le choix de l’outil s’est naturellement orienté vers une solution suffisamment flexible, personnalisable et simple pour permettre d’intégrer l’infrastructure existante et de faire face aux besoins de demain.

16:45 – 17:00: Open Space

This is a session for attendees to gather and discuss passionate questions, burning ideas, features, integrations or any topic of their choice, in an informal and tech-friendly environment, with other passionate and interested people.

There is no preplanned list of topics, only time slots and a space in one of the meeting rooms where interested participants propose topics and pick time slots.
