Experiences and Priorities for Private Cloud Keystone and Public Cloud Keystone

In this panel session, we bring together several Keystone experts to discuss their experiences with using Keystone in both private clouds and public clouds at scale.  Panel members will discuss the efforts they have been involved in with configuring and deploying Keystone to address issues such as improving performance at scale.  Panel members will discuss their experiences using advanced Keystone features such Fernet tokens and how these features have improved their deployments, and also what accommodations were needed to support this new feature properly.  Panel members will also discuss how they are preparing for Keystone's deprecation of its eventlet deployment model. Panel members from private cloud and public cloud, both vendor and non-vendor, will discuss Keystone issues that are most impactful to them and how they are driving Keystone in upcoming releases to improve its deployability, operability, and consumability.

What can I expect to learn?

Best practices, advanced deployment tips and tricks, common pitfalls, the issues each deployer has faced and mitigated, and their requirements for Keystone going forward.
