XtreemOS at SC'08 and ICT2008

Filed Under:

Last weeks were quite hectic for XtreemOS in terms of communication, dissemination and visibility: we had a booth at SC'08 and another one at IC2008 event.

It was the first time XtreemOS had a stand-alone booth at Supercomputing conference (last year, XtreemOS was hosted on INRIA's booth) and our first participation in an ICT event too.

It was a great success and XtreemOS attracted plentiful visitors interested in learning more about the project and who wanted to have further technical explanations about our soon-to-be-released open source software suite.
The smooth running of demos also greatly contributed to the attractiveness of the XtreemOS exhibition spaces.

This was also a welcome opportunity to meet other communities and key persons from the Linux-, OS- and open source communities...and maybe initiate collaborations / joint investigations!

We were happily surprised to know that most of the visitors had already heard of XtreemOS before coming to these events!

An obvious constatation: the external world is eagerly waiting for the first XtreemOS public software release...and they will quickly be lucky ;-)

Next XtreemOS booth: ISC'08 (June 2009) and SC'09 (November 2009) - Mark your calendar!


Flashback: XtreemOS at OGF24

Open Grid Forum

We presented and demonstrated XtreemOS at OGF24 in Singapore, which was
co-located with GridAsia 2008 this time (September 15-19, 2008).

OGF24 - Singapore

At our booth, we had info material about XtreemOS and XtreemFS and a poster stand. The booth produced some interest in XtreemOS; about 30 visitors came around and informed themselves, mainly from the area around Singapore, but also from the US, Europe and other places.

We are confident that the booth helped us to promote XtreemOS and to make it more visible to the rest of the world.
