Beyond datacenter cloud: the future of the OpenStack Foundation

In Sydney the OpenStack Foundation announced a new integration strategy to support open infrastructure more generally. It later resulted in the definition of several strategic focus areas, and the Foundation launching its first non-OpenStack project, Kata Containers.

How did we arrive there ? What are the consequences for the OpenStack Foundation, and for the OpenStack open source project ? What progress have we been making over the last 6 months ? Where are we going next ? In this talk, Thierry Carrez, VP of Engineering for the OpenStack Foundation, will share the story behind that critical evolution and detail the challenges ahead of us.

What can I expect to learn?

A lot of people are still confused with the new Foundation integration strategy unveiled in Sydney, or worried about the consequences for the OpenStack Foundation of the OpenStack open source project. This talk will dive deeper into the rationale behind this new strategy, explain the expected outcome, and detail the red lines we have set. Attendees should leave with a deeper understanding of where we are all headed, and how that affects them (or not).
