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.
With the voting polls open for the past week, the OpenStack Foundation is collecting votes for all sessions at this Spring’s OpenStack Summit in Atlanta. Red Hat is doing its part to contribute as many innovative and useful session to the agenda. With a variety of sessions submitted, from low-level discussions on network routing and storage, all the way through real-world success stories that share experiences and lessons learned with deploying an OpenStack cloud, we’ve got a great lineup to offer you.
Each and every vote counts, so if you haven’t already voted, have a look through all the Red Hat submitted sessions and vote for your favorites! Just click on the title to cast your vote. Remember, voting closes on Monday, March 3rd.
Since the announcement of RDO and Red Hat OpenStack at the Spring 2013 OpenStack Summit, these have arguably become two of the most popular ways to install OpenStack.

Tim’s earlier posts include:
- The evolution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and the answer to “Who will be the Red Hat of OpenStack?”
- Why combine Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenStack? Technology Optimization Benefits.
- Why combine Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenStack? Integration and Ecosystem Benefits.
As described in my earlier posts, it is plain to see that Red Hat is not treating OpenStack as “just” a layered product.
Rather, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform is the next major evolution in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux family. The tight levels of integration and responsible enterprise grade feature enhancement necessitate this combination. We believe that doing OpenStack right – to make it secure, performant, easy to use, and evolve over time – is only possible by taking a holistic approach.
