Built on the materials from the popular Mirantis OpenStack BootCamp and delivered by the same instructors, this compact workshop will give you all the information you need to understand OpenStack and impress your peers with technical depth. The workshop is aimed at OpenStack newbies and semi-technical that just want to know what the hell is OpenStack all about.
Starting with a brief introduction to the problems OpenStack was designed to solve, we'll dive into vivid illustrations of how various components of OpenStack fit together by visually traversing the
request flow of provisioning a VM in NOVA and storing an object in Swift. Participants will work in groups to complete exercises and checkpoint each others understanding of the material. We'll close the session with a brief gloss over key lessons from real life deployments, HA deployment options and feature comparison with VMware and CloudStack.
