    Lasso by Benjamin Foote

    Lasso is an SSO solution for nginx using the auth_request module. An nginx reverse proxy can be configured to require OAuth login for any website or web application. Most OAuth providers are supported including Google and Github. Lasso replaces that "one crappy password" that is found at many orgs. The response time for Lasso validation is less than 1ms when run on the same host. Lasso is offered under the MIT license. Support is available on the #lasso freenode irc channel. Ben would be more than happy to help you install Lasso.

    Devops with Public Clouds by Andy Chan

    Cloud and DevOps could mean different things to different people. This talk is centered on best practices selecting cloud compute friendly workloads -- bursting to the cloud to meet peak demands while keeping source data local. What DevOps folks are leveraging the cloud currently and the trends going forward

    I am currently an alliance systems engineer at Avere System providing public clouds with High-Performance Computing solutions. Prior to Avere, I was with Mentor Graphics supporting some of the heaviest software engineering R&D workloads in the electronic design automation space (8,000 to 20,000 cores)
    I received my BA from Oregon State and my MBA from Marylhurst.
