"Open cloud is more than software. Open environments and ecosystems create incredible opportunities for users and businesses to push technology forward.
OpenStack is open source software for building clouds. Designed to be pluggable and extensible, OpenStack allows you to choose from a variety of commodity or enterprise hardware, tools and management options depending on your use case. In this session, we will: - Demonstrate capabilities of the latest OpenStack release - Preview new features in the upcoming Folsom software release, scheduled for September 2012 - Highlight several users running OpenStack in production, including the technology choices they've made around OpenStack - Discuss how to get started with OpenStack, from turnkey deployment services to appliances and distributions
Ideal for cloud administrators and IT managers evaluating cloud software, and contributors."
