How The Gap Uses Open Source Technologies - including OpenStack and Cloud Foundry - to Drive One of the Largest Consumer Retail Experiences in the World

At The Gap, open source is a critical component for an always-changing and evolving infrastructure to serve one of the largest online and offline consumer retail offerings in the world. The company takes advantage of a multi-cloud approach at the infrastructure layer and this includes OpenStack, widely regarded as the go-to solution for open source infrastructure. This talk will discuss the decision process in using and implementing both OpenStack and Cloud Foundry, how both technologies are being used today, and how they're going to be included in larger initiatives for the retail giant as the shift to a digital-first business accelerates.
