The Fast Forward Upgrades Show

Back in the States, we're all preparing for Thanksgiving and cooking a turkey takes planning and time. Another thing that takes planning and time is upgrading a single Openstack deployment through three releases of Openstack with minimal/no impact to downtime. In order to optimize the time of this session, we've stolen a recipe from television and we're going to demonstrate the upgrade in a Cooking Show format! We will cover the three over-arching steps of the upgrade and while we let things cook, discuss the finer details around the decisions and experiences some of our customers went through when deciding to leverage the fast forward upgrade process in their own datacenter. We’ll discuss topics such as workload impact, operational flow and how to recover if you run into issues. Unlike the myth/claim that the tryptophan in turkey will make you sleepy, this session is sure to get your adrenaline pumping! So join us for this mix of customer interaction and live demo environments today!
