Many organizations are turning to OpenStack for an open, highly scalable private cloud infrastructure, but they don't always want to manage it themselves. Join this session to learn about a new offering from Red Hat and Rackspace that uses OpenStack as a managed service. Learn how this solution can help you accelerate time to deployment, reduce complexity, and take advantage of OpenStack expertise across both companies. Speakers will review key architectural and service options based on your organization’s security requirements, current infrastructure, SLAs and skill set, including evaluating whether you want to configure and run an OpenStack cloud in your own environment, in a third-party datacenter, or on Rackspace equipment. The session will also provide criteria to evaluate whether DIY or OpenStack-as-a-Service is the right path for you.
