Grand Ballroom D
This session is designed to give you an understanding of the architecture of OpenStack, how the pieces fit together, and how you can make use of it in your environment. The session provides an understanding of the OpenStack architecture and how to use it. It also includes a hands-on lab during which students will be able to provision and use resources from an existing OpenStack cluster. Students need to bring an internet-capable laptop with a modern browser.
This tutorial will be best suited for those who are either curious about or considering OpenStack, but don't have a deep understanding of how it works. This can include users from companies who are considering private or public cloud, or who are already virtualized in some capacity, such as using vCenter, or who are simply interested in increasing capacity and speed-to-market.
Attendees will go back to work with an understanding of how OpenStack fits into a business environment, and a good grounding in how it works and how it can be applied in their own situations.
