Introduction to OpenStack for VMware Administrators

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

As OpenStack expands its footprint into the enterprise, more and more people who are familiar with VMware vSphere concepts and terminology will be exposed to OpenStack. In order for OpenStack to be successful in enterprise environments, these people who are familiar with VMware concepts and terminology will need to understand the concepts and terminology in OpenStack. In this session, VMware experts who have moved into the OpenStack space will talk about how to bridge the gap between vSphere concepts and terminology and OpenStack concepts and terminology, showing the value in OpenStack for VMware environments and the value of OpenStack to VMware administrators. Please note that this session does not an attempt to give attendees a detailed understanding of how vSphere-related integrations work or are configured, but instead focuses on educating VMware-savvy administrators and users on OpenStack. This session will be valuable for anyone who needs a better grasp of how to talk about both VMware and OpenStack within an enterprise context.
