BrokenStack: OpenStack Failure Stories

We have all heard the stories of overcoming the trials and tribulations of OpenStack and emerging into the glistening dawn of a new Cloud day.  But what about the ones who didn’t make it? What about the ones who awakened not in the bliss of Cloud Nirvana, but in the depths of Cloud Hell? What went wrong? What can we learn from these failures? How can we ensure that we do not suffer the same fate? For answers to these questions and more, attend “BrokenStack: OpenStack Failure Stories.”  

What can I expect to learn?

We will examine case studies of organizations that have attempted to adopt OpenStack internally, and failed.  We will identify common trends, critical issues, and what they did when their initial efforts were unsuccessful.
