The world’s most wired city is a great place to talk about the future of open-source cloud computing. Some 900 people packed the Lotte Hotel Jamsil in Seoul, South Korea for the second OpenStack Day.
The theme was future perfect: “Beyond OpenStack: Service, applications and platforms.” Speakers included Choi Jin-sung, the CTO of SK Telecom, which provides juice to half the country’s mobile users in a hyper-competitive market.
Attendance was up compared to the 2014 edition. A year ago, 800 people pre-registered and about 550 attended the event. This year, pre-registration hit 950 people with 900 attending.
More than twice the number of sponsors participated this year. They included SK Telecom, Hewlett-Packard, Red Hat, Hyosung and Nuage Networks; the showcase featured HP, SKT, NetApp, HUAWEI, Solidfire, Red Hat, Cisco, Pivotal, Hyosung InformationsSystem (HDS), Nuage Networks and Atto Research.
