Today - the diversity of choice a CIO / Architect has to make is staggering. From programming languages, to databases, to Public/Private Cloud providers, let alone the diversity of just building an underlying, private infrastructure.
Within and outside the OpenStack community, the complexities, failures, and successes of OpenStack are parodied, leading Enterprises to wonder - should we invest?
This lightning talk outlines how OpenStack vendors "qualify" and decide to "invest" in an Enterprise for building a Private Cloud, and then outline (3-5 scenarios) where I believe OpenStack is the "right choice" and when OpenStack is the "wrong choice" (for now).
This talk is based on personal experiences of
- Working for Mirantis: Pure-Play OpenStack Firm:
- Working for RedHat: OpenStack, Containers, Automation, Virtualization, Linux
- Speaking and talking to hundreds of Enterprises
Attendees will learn how to build a technical and business framework to make the decision whether to invest or not in OpenStack.
