Ezilla (pronounced "Easy La") helps users quickly and easily build their own private cloud! Ezilla integrates storage, networking, and computing resources under a cloud and allows cloud service providers to swiftly deploy cloud service environments that are built on a user-friendly, web-based interface.

== Simple to Explanation ==

User  ---->  Web Browser support HTML 5 ( Google Chrome / Firefox ) ---->   EasyCloud   (  Front:  HTML 5 Web interface, Back ground:  KVM )

User could create their openSUSE 12.2 Virtual Machine by EasyCloud with friendly interface.
And use ssh or VNC to connect their VM. ( for text or GUI ).

It means user can use their netbook or pc which browser support HTML 5 to practice complex labs ( We have 3 VMs in our workshop at the same time ).

Just finish first one at 20th Oct, 2012

Press Release of GNOME.Asia 2012

Press Release of GNOME.Asia 2012

After Beijing, Ho-Chi-Minh City, Taipei and Bangalore, the fifth GNOME Asia Summit took place in Hong Kong.  Hong Kong is well known for being one of the largest cities in Asia, with a thriving cultural scene, solid infrastructure, and well integrated international connections.

We are very grateful to have important leaders in the GNOME Design Team - Allan Day, William Jon McCann & Jakub Steiner – to first gave us giving an overview the various stages for go through as a part of design initiatives in GNOME in the pre-event workshop. Three of them then delivered keynote presentation just after the opening of the conference to explain the history and philosophy behind the design of GNOME 3. They were also very patient in answering many of the participants' questions. 26 foreign speakers and 4 local speakers then shared their experiences in various aspects around GNOME. A total of 123 participants presented in the event.

One track in the afternoon was designed to focus on localization & internationalization and a number of Chinese specific problems were discussed. Participants from Mainland and Taiwan could get together face to face with Hong Kong activists to build stronger relationships.

We are also very grateful to have sponsors and co-hosts including Google, CwLinux, DotAsia, City University of Hong Kong, Internet Society Hong Kong, OpenSource.HK , Hong Kong Linux User Group and Linux Pilot,  We would also like to thank 3 individual sponsors. Last, but the least, all these will not happen without the support of the GNOME Foundation.
