OpenStack Summit Vancouver: Agenda Confirms 40+ Red Hat Sessions

As this Spring’s OpenStack Summit in Vancouver approaches, the Foundation has now posted the session agenda, outlining the final schedule of events. I am very pleased to report that Red Hat and eNovance have more than 40 approved sessions that will be included in the weeks agenda, with a few more approved as joint partner sessions, and even a few more as waiting alternates.

This vote of confidence confirms that Red Hat and eNovance continue to remain in sync with the current topics, projects, and technologies the OpenStack community and customers are most interested in and concerned with.

Red Hat is also a headline sponsor in Vancouver this Spring, along with Intel, SolidFire, and HP, and will have a dedicated keynote presentation, along with the 40+ accepted sessions. To learn more about Red Hat’s accepted sessions, have a look at the details below. Be sure to visit us at the below sessions and at our booth (#H4). We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver in May!
