In this webinar, we’ll discuss how to avoid common pitfalls when standing up OpenStack and share real stories about how other companies have successfully installed or upgraded their own instances in less than 20 minutes using existing infrastructure, without downtime.
Why? OpenStack held the promise of creating an AWS-like cloud inside an enterprise datacenter. Its value is to provide APIs and self-service to DevOps team and make it easier to deploy virtual infrastructure and application stacks. So, what happened? Even among OpenStack enthusiasts, it is clear that it takes a lot of effort to install and upgrade OpenStack in a production-ready configuration. It’s been difficult from the get go to hire OpenStack experts, onboard existing brownfield environments and configure a multi-region, multi-tenant OpenStack deployment.
Then there’s the need to implement comprehensive monitoring and alerts, patch critical bugs as they are discovered, and occasionally upgrade the entire installation; without severely impacting uptime. While some big enterprises may have gotten it close to right, the vast majority of IT teams that want to install or upgrade OpenStack are too scared to do it.
OpenStack doesn’t have to be hard. With the right tools, it isn’t.
