OpenStack Summit Sydney preview: Red Hat to present at more than 40 sessions

The next OpenStack Summit will take place in Sydney, Australia, November 6-8. And despite the fact that the conference will only run three days instead of the usual four, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn about OpenStack from Red Hat’s thought leaders.

Red Hatters will be presenting or co-presenting at more than 40 breakout sessions, sponsored track sessions, lightning talks, demos, and panel discussions. Just about every OpenStack topic, from various services to NFV solutions to day-2 management to containers integration will be covered.

In addition, as a premier sponsor, we’ll have a large presence in the OpenStack Marketplace. Visit us at booth B1 where you can learn about our products and services, speak to RDO and other community leaders about upstream projects, watch Red Hat product demos from experts, and score some pretty cool swag. There will also be many Red Hat partners with booths throughout the exhibit hall, so you can speak with them about their OpenStack solutions with Red Hat.

Below is a schedule of sessions Red Hatters will be presenting at. Click on each title link to find more information about that session or to add it to your Summit schedule. We’ll add our sponsored track sessions (seven more) in the near future.
