Hear from a real deployment of OpenStack at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. Here we discuss what steps we undertook to both evaluate and start our OpenStack Journey to transform our IT services that we provide to over 23,000 students on our higher-education campus. Also covered is what advise we have for you to start off on the right foot and avoid some of the pitfalls that we've discovered!
Attendees will learn why we've chosen OpenStack for our campus IT infrastructure, why we've chosen OpenStack, and where we are taking our deployment next. Attendees will also gain insight into the risk and reward versus the effort of building vs buying infrastructure for an OpenStack deployment.
