OpenStack Distributions: How they will shape the future of OpenStack innovation

We are all participating in building OpenStack and just like Linux distributions, which helped would-be Linux users manage the complexity and configuration of myriad libraries, placement of files, and executables to successfully get the system to boot and run, all indications are that OpenStack distributions are poised to help would-be OpenStack users to quickly get a fully-functional and configured cloud up and running. Companies are bringing unique value-added capabilities  to the OpenStack core while fully providing enterprise support and services for their distributions. In this panel discussion, Dell will moderate a discussion with experts from Red Hat, Suse, Canonical, Morphlabs and Dell to discuss the importance of OpenStack distributions in the evolution of OpenStack and how they can support the needs of different markets and customer profiles.
