At this year’s HP Discover, Nati Shalom lit up the screen with his demo of the Cloudify Player, showing just how easy it is to demo an app through this new user-friendly, hassle-free tool.
Take even your most complex apps to the cloud at the click of a button. Check out Nati’s blog post with an intro to the Cloudify Player and its applications.
Nati Shalom gave a great talk yesterday at Cloud Expo East on “Big Data on OpenStack,” showing how to manage your big data applications on the OpenStack cloud using Cloudify.
Check out his slides from the presentation below.
The Cloudify team will be on the ground this week at the Cloud Expo East event in New York’s Javits Center Monday through Thursday, with Nati Shalom giving a talk “Big Data on OpenStack” at 8:15am on Tuesday. For a sneak peak of Nati’s talk, check out his recent blog post - Big Data on OpenStack.

Last week’s OpenStack Israel was a big hit! Uri Cohen gave a great talk to a packed house.
Check out the slide deck below from his presentation “It’s the App, Stupid!” on Orchestration, DevOps Automation and What’s in Between.
Tomorrow is the big day for OpenStack Israel! With over 350 attendees and a record number of international speakers this is one event not to miss! Attendees will get a chance to meet with top industry leaders and interact with fellow OpenStack users and enthusiasts. They will hear from keynote speakers, such as Jonathan Bryce, Executive Director of the OpenStack Foundation, and will be able to dive deeper into OpenStack technology in a variety of technical sessions.
Take a look at all of the exciting speakers on the event agenda.
Our very own Uri Cohen is in the line up for his talk “Building your own OpsWorks with Chef, Cloudify, Heat/OpenStack” in track 2 of the technical sessions. Can’t wait!
We look forward to seeing you there tomorrow!
We are excited to introduce to you the Cloudify Player, a lightweight widget that enables a quick and hassle-free way to demo new frameworks or deploy your apps on the HP Cloud or the cloud of your choice. All you have to do is click a button. Pretty cool, huh?
Open source project owners can embed the widget on their site, providing a simple test-drive experience for their users.
Here’s how it works. The user accesses the widget either directly through the Cloudify Player page or from the embedded widget on the project owner’s site. The user clicks the play button, and sits back, relaxes and watches their app deploy on their cloud of choice right before their eyes. Behind the scenes, the Player communicates with a widget server that manages a pool of virtual machines deployed on the cloud, each “bootstrapped” with a running Cloudify manager. When a user click the “Play” button, the server instantly borrows a VM from the pool, connects to the Cloudify manager that runs on it over REST, issuing the recipe installation command. The application or tool is then deployed and installed on the server, providing the user with a hassle-free demo.
The Cloudify Player takes you from simple trial to full production in a matter of minutes. Check it out today!
For more information about the Player, please see Uri Cohen’s blog post Introducing the Cloudify Player as well as Nati Shalom’s blog post Using the Cloudify Player as an Open Source Framework for Building Your Own Cloud Application Marketplace on OpenStack.

A Groovy Kind of Java
Check out Sayeret Lambda’s upcoming meetup with Cloudify’s Barak Merimovich.
A domain-specific language (DSL) is a programming language or specification language dedicated to a particular problem domain, a particular problem representation technique, and/or a particular solution technique. Cloudify, the open-source PaaS stack, uses a Groovy-based DSL to define ‘recipes’ which include all of the information required to run a service in the cloud, including lifecycle, monitoring, scaling and more. The Groovy DSL is integrated into the Java based Cloudify stack.
In this talk Barak will discuss why we chose to use a DSL, and why Groovy specifically, and how the DSL is implemented.
When: Tuesday, May 7th at 6:30 PM
Where: Google Campus Tel Aviv - Electra Tower, 98 Yigal Alon Street (26th Floor), Tel Aviv, Israel (map)
See you there!
