Red Hat: Leveraging CI/CD to Improve OpenStack Operations

With test driven development, continuous integration/continuous deployment and devops practices now the norm, most organizations understand the importance of testing their applications.

During this session, attendees will learn how Rackspace leverages Red Hat’s Distributed Continuous Integration (DCI) to build a better OpenStack experience for their customers while reducing the time required to not only roll out the latest version of OpenStack to new customers, but also begin upgrading customers within weeks of announcement. In addition to this, the automated testing in DCI raises bugs directly with Red Hat QAs team to shorten the feedback cycle and improve the final product.
