Filling the Management Gap: Cloud Management Platforms for Managing OpenStack and Other Cloud Infrastructures

Many enterprises are confused about what OpenStack is and how they will manage OpenStack deployments. OpenStack is the leading private cloud-enabled infrastructure, but there is another entire category of solutions called cloud management platforms (CMPs) that fill critical management gaps for cloud-enabled infrastructures. In this session, you will learn how CMPs bring critical management capabilities like chargeback/showback, configuration and lifecycle management, orchestration, automation, and governance driven by IT-defined policies, and capacity and utilization reporting to your OpenStack deployment. Leave this session understanding:  Differences between cloud-enabled infrastructure management capabilities and CMP management capabilities. How a CMP can help you control your OpenStack deployment and more by integrating existing virtualization and public cloud providers. How Red Hat CloudForms works with Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure to cost-effectively accelerate your journey to private/hybrid IaaS cloud.
