Developing a private or public cloud can be complex and challenging. However, the essential element of all clouds is the need for flexibility and interoperability with existing and future technologies within your datacenter—regardless of which vendor you choose. The only way to truly achieve this is with open source technologies. The OpenStack project has proven this by setting a common standard based on a shared set of goals, resulting in successful and sought-after technologies that benefit everyone.
In this session, you'll hear about the shifts taking place in IT architectures and learn about the key open source technologies fueling these shifts and their benefits. You'll also learn how Red Hat and eNovance are both contributing to and leading these open source communities, ranging from Infrastructure-as-a-Service (OpenStack and Red Hat Enterprise Linux), cloud management platforms (ManageIQ), storage technologies (Gluster and Ceph), Platform-as-a-Service (OpenShift), and why they are critical to the future of a truly open cloud.
