The energy from the latest OpenStack Summit in Paris is still in the air. Its record attendance and vibrant interactions are a testimony of the maturity and adoption of OpenStack across continents, verticals and use cases.
It’s especially exciting to see its applications growing outside of core datacenter use cases with Network Function Virtualization being top of mind for many customers present at the Summit.
If we look back at the last few years, a fundamental role fueling OpenStack adoption has been played by the distributions which have taken the project OpenStack and helped turn it into an easy to consume, supported, enterprise-grade product.
At PLUMgrid we have witnessed this transformation summit after summit, customer deployment after customer deployment. Working closely with our customers and our OpenStack partners we can attest how much easier, smoother, simpler an OpenStack deployment is today.
Similarly, PLUMgrid wants to simplify and accelerate the deployment of OpenStack network infrastructure, especially for those customers that are going into production today and building large-scale environments.
If you had the pleasure to be at the summit you have learnt about all the new features that were introduced in Juno for the OpenStack networking component (and if not check out this blog which provides a good summary of all Juno’s networking feature).
