Sponsors for this Year’s CloudStack Collaboration Conference

June 11, 2024

The CloudStack Collaboration Conference is set for November 20-22nd in Madrid. This much-anticipated event promises to be a hub of innovation, networking, and knowledge sharing, all centred around the dynamic world of CloudStack.

However, none of this would be possible without the incredible support of our sponsors. Their contributions are the backbone of this event, ensuring that we can bring together a diverse community of developers, users, and CloudStack enthusiasts. The funds raised by our sponsors go directly into making the CloudStack Collaboration Conference a reality, covering everything from venue arrangements to catering.

This blog delves into each sponsor’s services, how they contribute to the CloudStack community and why they have chosen to sponsor the event.

“LINBIT® is the force behind DRBD®, the de facto open source standard for high-availability (HA) software, and LINSTOR®, which manages data storage for enterprise virtualization and cloud computing. Both open-source software’s build the basis for our software-defined storage solution LINBIT SDS. It delivers ultra-fast, resilient block storage for private and cloud infrastructure. Using LINBIT SDS enables companies to use commodity hardware to create high-performance storage clusters. With an integration to CloudStack, LINBIT SDS simplifies building, running, and controlling block storage. It includes the DRBD Kernel Driver, LINSTOR Volume Manager, an intuitive GUI that simplifies multi-cluster management, and 24/7 support.

LINBIT’s main contribution to CloudStack is the LINSTOR driver. This driver not only brings a new driver for Primary Storage to CloudStack but also makes one of LINBIT’s developers an Apache contributor. With this driver, the whole LINSTOR/DRBD storage stack becomes available for CloudStack. This enables users to build performant storage for their Clouds with open-source software only out of commodity hardware. It comes with all features expected from a storage software stack: snapshots, synchronous replication for HA, optional encryption at rest, optional encryption in transit, asynchronous replication between sites, and continuous snapshot delta shipping for backup and disaster recovery purposes.

CCC is the premier event for meeting the CloudStack community, learning about cool projects for end customers, and hearing about the new features coming to CloudStack. LINBIT is proud to be at CCC for the third time. As open-source is in our company DNA, we feel right at home at the event about the greatest Open-Source software stack for building clouds. We are looking forward to meeting you at CCC in Madrid.”
