No, not really. But in this session, five highly opinionated Stackers will lock horns over the best way to bring about global dominance of OpenStack as the default cloud-building platform. Jesse Proudman
of Blue Box, Randy Bias
of Cloudscaling, Alex Freedland
of Mirantis, Chris Kemp
of Nebula, and Christopher MacGown
of Piston will each argue their cases for the roles that distros, appliances, managed services, PCaaS, public cloud, consulting/training/DIY and the Foundation have to play in leveraging OpenStack s meteoric rise to prominence into the dominant cloud-building platform it seems destined to become.
Keeping all these opinions in check and guiding the table-pounding and voice-raising to something constructive will be Caroline McCrory
of GigaOm Research. Bring your opinions but check your assumptions at the door, and enter the room with an open mind. This crew is ready to inform, challenge and surprise the audience with tweet-worthy observations and actionable ideas that we can use to propel OpenStack to world domination.
