We read about the Cloud everywhere. In an election, year the malfunctioning health-care webserver in the cloud threatened to undermine a presidency! So what is this cloud thing? We know there are cloud providers with compute power and storage space for rent. What should you look for? Would you ever want your own cloud server? How do you do it?

This presentation will cover these questions and give a live demo of bringing up a Linux cloud server from scratch. If you are already running your own server on the net or are providing some service, then a cloud server may be exactly what you are looking for. The price of a cloud server ranges from an one-time cost of $35 to hundreds of dollars per month.

This will be a very practical presentation aimed at those comfortable with administering linux boxes. If you pardon the pun: there will be no cloud theory.

[Attendee option]: Bring your laptop. This will be hands-on. If you would like to walk away with your own cloud server to take home for the month please bring a dollar with you.
