Introduction to OpenStack

Introduction to OpenStack

Cloud Computing has taken the IT world by storm over the last few years. Advances in virtualization technology have made it possible to not only make much more efficient use of available hardware, but to offer it with previously unheard-of levels of flexibility. Furthermore, sysadmins and devops need not reinvent the wheel when deploying a cloud: a vibrant ecosystem has grown from the need for quality free and open-source tools to build such an infrastructure.

Due to the organized structure of OpenStack, rapid development, and flexible components, in just over three years, it has risen in the F/OSS community as the platform of choice for private and public cloud deployments. In this webinar, Adolfo Brandes, an OpenStack technical consultant for hastexo, will give an overview of why that is, including:

  • An overview of OpenStack and its components
  • A live demonstration of an OpenStack Cloud
  • Best practices on how to do a first deployment

System administrators and engineers will get the most out of the webinar due to its technical nature. Nevertheless, if you’re simply looking to find out what OpenStack is, what it can do, and why you should use it, this is a great opportunity.

If you like what you see, you might want to explore the full OpenStack course from The Linux Foundation.
