Recap: The week in OpenStack
Day 2 keynote started with community metrics presented by Thierry Carrez:
For sure, lovely numbers, but verified on Stackalytics that is an all-time summary. For example, Deutsche Telekom was also on Marc Collier's list of contributer companies, but the last commit was 6 years ago. So that are historical data.
Next up on stage was Kendall Nelson & Archana Kumari to describe Project Onboarding Program and Mentoring Program, a very long running program on the OpenStack community to connect newcomer.
The most interesting Keynote session followed up: Stuart Grace from BBC R&D explained Building Environmental Dashboards for OpenStack.
Carbon Intensity API is a service in UK, where you can connect your OpenStack cloud to identify which workload produced which carbon output. This topic continued from the speach the day befor from Dr. Franziska Brantner and is connected to the AWS power consumption report, a new part of the billing service. But it steps a bit further, because it makes prediction on what time you can useful running your workload to save carbon expulsion. The full story is described about Estimating Power Usage is described in BBC R&D blog and the fun fact: I had similar in our backlog for years.
Similar topic is the ECMWF
with numerical weather prediction, found also on Github
And all together is covered in Scientific / HPA Sig
Next topic was 5G in the StarlingX project update
And also a very interesting presentation was Fungible DBU, because we know NVidia to use Graphic CPU for AI/ML computing, but what makes more sense to use a plain Data CPU. Will see if this company goes to the stock exchange or will bought by a bigger company.
Last Keynote session comes from Volvo and Zuul. For sure, one of the best dressed speaker :-)
