What exactly happens when you click Launch Instance in OpenStack’s Dashboard?

The basics are pretty well understood, but how about if we look a level deeper than the simple, abstract narrative? What are the technologies involved below OpenStack? How does OpenStack coordinate those technologies to get you a running VM that you can SSH into?

In this session, Mark will cover as much of much of the high-level and low-level details of the story of your “Launch Instance” request right up until the time that you get a shell on your VM.
