Don't Fail at Scale: How to Plan for, Build, and Operate a Successful OpenStack Cloud

OpenStack is a unique set of cross-functional, fast-moving technologies that challenge the status quo in any IT organization.  It has been easy to read about and buy into the interweaving of compute, storage, and networking technologies in a single platform.  Despite such amazing promise and technology, technology is littered with companies who have tried and failed to deliver a successful, scaleable, supportable OpenStack cloud to their customers.

Architects and IT teams tasked with designing and deploying OpenStack clouds could face multiple challenges that impact the result of a successful deployment.  We will discuss what you need to consider before, during, and after an OpenStack cloud deployment that will help make it successful and meet business and IT needs of any organization.
