Gigaom Research analysts and our sponsor Canonical discuss the tips and tricks for successfully deploying OpenStack for the enterprise in our next live webinar. Join us on Feb. 20.


OpenStack is still a relatively new cloud infrastructure platform and therefore requires some careful up-front planning to ensure it meets the requirements of the enterprise. This webinar will take a deep look at how OpenStack is constructed and deployed while keeping total cost of ownership in mind. Each OpenStack component will be examined, including the latest innovations in software-defined networking for OpenStack as well as how to bring existing VMware infrastructure into an OpenStack environment.

In this webinar, our panel will discuss these topics:

  • Understand how a cloud-based IT infrastructure differs from a conventional data center design
  • Drill into OpenStack components
  • Tips and tricks for deploying OpenStack (integrating VMware infrastructure into OpenStack, SDN integration with OpenStack)
  • Considerations around governance, compliance and security in an OpenStack cloud

Speakers include:

  • Paul Miller, founder, The Cloud of Data
  • Janakiram MSV, principal analyst, Janakiram & Associates
  • David S. Linthicum, SVP, Cloud Technology Partners
  • Mark Baker, product manager, Canonical
