Cloud Federation: Are We There Yet?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Cloud Bursting has long been the holy grail of cloud use cases. And we are getting closer! With the recent progress in Icehouse, capabilities now exist to demonstrate a true federated user experience operating across multiple clouds.  In this talk and demonstration, we will cover some basic concepts around federated authentication, an explanation of the architecture and services behind Keystone identity federation (based on SAML), and a demo of how this can be configured and used to log a user into multiple clouds from a single account.  We will then discuss what s next, including Keystone to Keystone federation, and further developments aimed at providing a more seamless user experience while consuming multiple clouds simultaneously.
