The largest global public cloud footprint - Passport Program Phase II

You might have heard of it - the largest public cloud footprint called OpenStack Public Cloud passport program. The Passport Program is an initiative from the Public Cloud Working Group to provide a unified way for users to access free trial accounts from OpenStack public cloud providers around the world, which allows them to experience the freedom, performance and interoperability of open source infrastructure. 

During this session we will show how the program have evolved during its first months in the open, what new cloud members that have joined, what more the program offers to both the cloud consumer as well as for public cloud provider. We will also tell you how we see the future for this program, but also invite you to join the discussion!

What can I expect to learn?

For cloud customers (developers, operations, administrators, et al):

  • trial (freemium) accounts in datacentres worldwide; 
  • engage new cloud users in the open choice; 
  • improve the onboarding documentation for everyone; and 
  • improve SDKs for the most popular programming languages. 

For public cloud providers:

  • increase customer sign-up and onboarding; 
  • promotion of your cloud at OpenStack Summits and other events; 
  • good practice for customer sign-up; and 
  • learn from your fellow public clouds.
