Heading to Red Hat Summit? Here’s how you can learn more about OpenStack.

Red Hat Summit is just around the corner, and we’re excited to share all the ways in which you can connect with OpenStack® and learn more about this powerful cloud infrastructure technology. If you’re lucky enough to be headed to the event in San Francisco, May 8-10, we’re looking forward to seeing you. If you can’t go, fear not, there will be ways to see some of what’s going on there remotely. And if you’re undecided, what are you waiting for? Register today

From the time Red Hat Summit begins you can find hands-on labs, general sessions, panel discussions, demos in our partner pavillion (Hybrid Cloud section), and more throughout the week. You’ll also hear from Red Hat OpenStack Platform customers on their successes during some of the keynote presentations. Need an open, massively scalable storage solution for your cloud infrastructure? We’ll also have sessions dedicated to our Red Hat Ceph Storage product.

Red Hat Summit has grown significantly over the years, and this year we’ll be holding activities in both the Moscone South and Moscone West. And with all of the OpenStack sessions and labs happening, it may seem daunting to make it to everything, especially if you need to transition from one building to the next. But worry not. Our good friends from Red Hat Virtualization will be sponsoring pedicabs to help transport you between the buildings.
