Event Details


Running OpenStack in the Black

In this session, we’ll examine OpenStack and related open infrastructure projects, and talk about how to leverage them to achieve economic and operational harmony in a multi-infra, multi-cloud, multi-arch enterprise.  Moving beyond software, we’ll discuss and differentiate private cloud and legacy application hardware strategies.

How can IT organizations compete with giant public cloud providers’ cost efficiency?  This session will present useful research and discussion for OpenStack Admins and IT Managers who face this challenge.  This session will cover concrete principles, concepts, and approaches, agnostic of the tool chain.


What can I expect to learn?

Valuable war stories from 2012 through present will be discussed, providing color and light to the fiscal and operational challenges of open source private cloud infrastructure for modern IT enterprises.  Audience participation, Q & A are highly encouraged.  This is not about any one specific piece of tooling or distribution.  This session will cover concrete principles, concepts, and approaches, agnostic of the tool chain.
