One does not simply learn how to build production-grade OpenStack!
The major distributions (and scripted installs like Devstack) have taken the guesswork out of getting OpenStack up and running. Gone are the days of spending days building your first OpenStack cloud using the how-to on openstack.org. But without this, how does one really learn the intricacies of OpenStack? And what happens when it's time to build your first production-grade cloud?
A highly available OpenStack cloud consists of much more than just the big tent projects... numerous other open source applications are involved in making it work. And there's a gap in documentation between proof of concept and production creating a bigger leap than should exist.
In this session we'll demonstrate what it takes to actually go from How-To to POC to production-grade OpenStack, filling in the gaps that exist and learning along the way.
How to build an OpenStack cloud from scratch. (No vendor distributions....)
How to turn that into a production OpenStack cloud.
How to learn the nuts and bolts along the way.
