Location: Salon E

Vertebra is a next generation Cloud Computing Platform built with Erlang/Ruby and centered around Ejabberd and XMPP. Vertebra can be used for automating the cloud as well as for distributed real time application development. The whole idea of Vertebra is to democratize the cloud, abstracting the interface API’s and allowing folks to utilize multiple cloud providers based on a number of cost/benefit factors.
