The speaker has made something of a hobby in recent years of porting Open Source software to HP’s heritage OpenVMS operating system. One of the most challenging and interesting porting exercises was porting Erlang/OTP. In this talk, the speaker will discuss the motivations behind this work, some of the challenges faced, progress to date, and future plans. In addition, the speaker has recently joined HP’s corporate Cloud Services team, and in this capacity he will provide an overview of where and how Erlang is currently being used within the HP Cloud, and will outline potential future opportunities to further leverage Erlang technology in this space.
Talk objectives: To describe the work done by the speaker to port Erlang to HP’s OpenVMS operating system and to provide an overview of how Erlang is currently used within HP’s Cloud infrastructure (and how it may further be used in the future).
Target audience: General audience (there will be some content of a technical nature, but this will not be integral to the talk).
