Voting Open for OpenStack Summit Tokyo Submissions: Deployment, management and metering/monitoring

Another cycle, another OpenStack Summit, this time on October 27-30 in Tokyo. The Summit is the best opportunity for the community to gather and share knowledge, stories and strategies to move OpenStack forward. With more than 200 breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, collaborative design sessions, tons of opportunity for networking and perhaps even some sightseeing, the Summit is the even everyone working or planning to work with OpenStack should attend.

Critical subjects, awesome sessions

To select those 200+ sessions the community proposes talks that are selected by your vote, and we would like to showcase our proposed sessions about some of the most critical subjects of an OpenStack cloud: deployment, management and metering/monitoring.

There are multiple ways to deploy, manage and monitor clouds, but we would like to present our contributions to the topic, sharing both code and vision to tackle this subject now and in the future. With sessions about TripleO, Heat, Ironic, Puppet, Ceilometer, Gnocchi and troubleshooting, we’ll cover the whole lifecycle of OpenStack, from planning a deployment, to actually executing and then monitoring and maintaining it on the long term.

Is OpenStack for You?

As product manager and OpenStack evangelist you may think that the standard response to the question “Is OpenStack for You” is unequivocally “Yes!”.

Well, that’s not necessarily the case here.

To help bring clarity to the question, we’ve developed a webinar that tackles the “when (and when not) to” use OpenStack. In the webinar, we point out the characteristics of applications likely to flourish when used with OpenStack. We also explore various approaches for getting started with OpenStack.
