Video recording and post production done by OpenStack Foundation.
Historically, some have considered OpenStack difficult to deploy and operate. There are dozens of resources from consultants and training to distributions and tools available to help, but is the problem really solved? The fact is, operating an OpenStack cloud is not a trivial endeavour.
This talk will detail what it takes to actually operate an OpenStack cloud in production, from the perspective of cloud operators who each have more than three years of first-hand experience operating OpenStack clouds across dozens of deployments. John and Craig will share with the audience best practices for OpenStack operations and discuss what works out of the box as well as the areas where improvisation is often required.
In addition to this operational overview, they will share war stories of measured successes, miserable failures and what was done to solve problems on production infrastructure.
This talk is intended to provide insight for fellow operators as well as prospective users.
