OpenStack has so many players and technologies sprouting up it is becoming harder and harder to ascertain if it can actually solve the problems that started the movement.  There are so many moving parts with complementary or overlapping technology initiatives, resulting in an ever-changing landscape.  Cutting through the noise and defining a clear set of strategies can help companies exceed their expectations and leverage OpenStack to achieve both business and technical objectives.

OpenStack experts from AMD and Forrester will review the current situation of where OpenStack is and where it is heading into the future.  The key takeaways of the session will be:

  • Determine which OpenStack strategy (public, private or hybrid cloud) is the right strategy
  • Leverage OpenStack for key applications and understand why not every application is well suited for OpenStack
  • Learn what OpenStack is good at and where OpenStack needs to improve for enterprises to fully leverage its capabilities
  • Gain insights into the key infrastructure innovations that can shape the direction of OpenStack and redefine its capabilities to simplify operations, reduce space/power consumption and maximize computing resources

This webinar will provide valuable insights for enterprises currently evaluating, designing or implementing OpenStack.  It will be a provocative discussion based on data driven industry insights and real life customer deployments.
