We've all heard it before. OpenStack is too complex. There are too many projects, governance procedures, and communities to keep up with. There are too many deployment architectures, tools and configurations to get started quickly. Complexity costs. It requires me to have an entire team of OpenStack professionals which I simply can't afford. In survey after survey Enterprises evaluating OpenStack site complexity as the number one barrier to adoption.
What is the OpenStack community doing to confront this complexity? What more can we do? How will this concern improve or dissipate over coming releases? With a coordinated effort, how could we make OpenStack easy understand, evaluate, and cost effective to deploy and operate?
Attendees should expect to learn what is currently being done to limit the complexity that Enterprises describe. What more can be done, and to provide feedback or insight into additional ways to make OpenStack simple to consume.
