Great Expectations – The New Enterprise Stack

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Are you already managing large-scale Openstack / KVM alongside existing VMware / ESX systems in your environment?  Or thinking about doing so?  We’re bringing together thought leaders from both the VMware and the OpenStack communities to discuss what our common Enterprise customers expect.  This panel will offer insight into where VMware and OpenStack Enterprise customer requirements overlap, how Enterprise customers often map their workloads to these two platforms and the state of OpenStack from the Enterprise perspective.

While our discussion will focus on how OpenStack can improve and close “the VMware Enterprise gap,” this will be a collegial panel that will highlight where the VMware and OpenStack communities can collaborate more closely.  We will seek to understand the key areas where OpenStack should focus to provide Enterprise customers with an ideal open source solution for higher-maintenance vertically-scaling “pets” workloads.
