CloudOpen & LinuxCon
CloudOpen is the only event dedicated specifically to the open source projects, technologies and companies that make up the cloud. At the intersection of cloud computing and open source are Linux, so it was a no-brainer to co-locate CloudOpen with LinuxCon - a place where many of the folks working in open source cloud technologies were already gathering - in essence to create one larger event. CloudOpen attendees get full access to the additional content (over 100 sessions), attendees and collaboration opportunities available with LinuxCon. There is no separate cost or registration fee - just a lot more opportunity! For more information on LinuxCon, click here.

New in 2015 - ContainerCon
ContainerCon joins LinuxCon and CloudOpen this year and just like LinuxCon, there is no separate cost or registration fee. 

Why Introduce ContainerCon? Virtualization is a crucial part of enterprise IT operations and cloud services and innovation is needed to make viVirtualization is a crucial part of enterprise IT operations and cloud services and innovation is needed to make virtualization systems more efficient, adaptive, and easier to deploy. Linux has been at the center of this with advancements in nearly every aspect of virtualization with Linux containers being the most recent disruptive technology. ContainerCon will bring together leading contributors in Linux containers, the Linux kernel, and related projects to forge a path to continued innovation and education.
