The cloud era calls for industry standards, but hundreds of cloud hosting providers and proprietary technology platforms have divided the market. How do we create a common, open cloud platform that both hosting providers and enterprises can freely leverage? In this session, you will hear from both an enterprise user and hosting provider who are deploying OpenStack, the massively scalable, open source cloud operating system and emerging open industry standard.
Jim Curry, GM of Rackspace Cloud Builders, will kick off the session with a brief update on OpenStack, the fastest growing open source cloud community, and then introduce two real-world users who will each share their use case with OpenStack. Troy Klein, Staff Hosting Engineer for Sony Computer Entertainment America, will discuss his experiences rolling out an OpenStack private cloud proof of concept and evaluating alternative cloud solutions. Ben Cherian, GM of Emerging Technologies at DreamHost, will also share how his company is leveraging OpenStack and participating in the open source community.
