Removing the Pain from OpenStack

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.

  • Manage A Hybrid Cloud With OpenStack Dec 7 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Madhura Maskasky, Co-founder, VP of Product Platform9
    Hybrid cloud environments are the future for many enterprises: the ability to combine a private cloud with multiple public cloud providers, for different types of workloads, can mean cost savings and agility.

    In a hybrid cloud world, having a common API layer will be critical for seamless consumption of these clouds without settling for the lowest common denominator among them. OpenStack can be that API layer since it is open and widely supported by enterprises and vendors. In this webinar, we will discuss hybrid cloud use-cases and show how OpenStack can be used to manage hybrid cloud. We’ll also demo a solution that can discover running VMs, AMIs and VPC in Amazon Web Services and make them available for self-service via OpenStack.
  • Open-Source-as-a-Service Makes Cloud Infrastructure Easy Recorded: Nov 15 2016 44 mins
    Sirish Raghuram, CEO Platform9
    What if there's a faster and easier way to manage cloud infrastructure across multiple platforms and save up to 70% of IT costs? Learn how best-of-breed cloud infrastructure, like OpenStack and Kubernetes, can be SaaS-managed to reduce cost and time to value, all without lock-in to a single vendor ecosystem.This helps DevOps and IT teams focus on solving core business problems while automating much of the set-up and management process on the back end.
    Platform9 will speak from experience of enabling customers, like Box, Blue Cross Blue Shield and PlayStation, to realize a greater than 99 percent success rate with OpenStack projects.
  • Nightmare on Storage St. - Managing Disparate Workloads in Multi-Tenant Clouds Recorded: Nov 15 2016 46 mins
    Bryan Wagoner, Systems Engineer, Platform9, Michael Bagg, Systems Engineer - NetApp SolidFire
    In private clouds, multi-tenancy can be both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing to be able to manage a wide variety of applications and customers in a completely automated fashion, but a curse for storage administrators who have to deal with an unbalanced set of I/O workloads and the nightmare of provisioning thousands of LUNs into an end-user-controlled wild west of environments while still maintaining high service levels. In this webinar, you will learn about the importance of storage automation in OpenStack and how to deal with mixed workload environments using techniques such as Quality of Service, cache manipulation, automated storage management, and how SSD is transforming the data center.

  • Kubernetes & Open Source Containers: A New Era for DevOps Recorded: Oct 18 2016 56 mins
    Sirish Raghuram, Co-founder and CEO, Platform9
    We are on the cusp of a new era of application development software: instead of bolting on operations as an after-thought to the software development process, Kubernetes promises to bring development and operations together by design. This new open source container cluster manager provides platform automation for deployment, scaling and management of application containers and clusters. With declarative, infrastructure-agnostic constructs to describe how applications are composed, interact and managed, Kubernetes promises an order of magnitude increase in operability of modern software systems. Join Sirish Raghuram, Co-founder of Platform9, the company enabling SaaS managed Kubernetes anywhere, to discuss why Kubernetes matters, and the advantages it can provide to DevOps.
Delivering open source frameworks as managed services
Platform9 enables DevOps teams to be up and running in minutes with open source frameworks such as OpenStack and Kubernetes. Our managed services provide extreme ease of use, coupled with production-ready SLAs for cloud infrastructure.
