BEACON Live from Cloud Expo

This week saw Tino Vázquez, VP of Engineering and Head of Research at OpenNebula Systems, present the BEACON project at an industry event attended by thousands of IT professionals.

Cloud Expo Europe is the biggest and best attended cloud event in the world. The 2015 event was held 11th and 12th March, in London's ExCel Centre and featured a theatre dedicated to the latest exciting Open Source cloud development.

The 'Open Cloud & Developer Park' covered key open source cloud platforms including OpenStack and OpenNebula, and was designed specifically to equip the audience with technical knowledge and hands-on tutorials on today’s main open source IaaS platforms.

Vázquez introduced BEACON to those in attendance, giving an overview of the project as well as outlining the goals and partners involved. There was also a lively Q&A at the end of session.
