Next Friday, April 20 at the OpenStack Design Summit and Conference, I will be moderating the OpenStack Private Cloud Panel from 10:40am – 11:20am in Breakout room D of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco. I expect it will be an interesting topic and I'm really looking forward to the discussion between the audience and the panelists. The synopsis and panelists are below. If you're going to be at the conference, please come join us!
Private cloud is a hot topic right now. Many businesses and organizations are racing to build proof of concepts and put the cloud to work internally. I suspect that we're past the "Why private cloud? Why not public cloud?" questions and we've moved on to the "How?" but perhaps I'm wrong. Maybe we're at a tipping point? Between your questions, our panelists' answers, and the ensuing debate, let's find out where we stand.
The panelists will be:
- Operations Engineer
- Project lead for Wikimedia Labs, a test, development, and semi-production volunteer managed cloud.
