Addressing Issues of Risk, and Governance in OpenStack without sacrificing Agility
Topic: Public & Hybrid Clouds
Abstract: OpenStack has rapidly moved beyond the “science project” label that many of its detractors’ use, but for many stakeholders there are still many uncertainties around governance, compliance, data security and data retention. These issues are the biggest inhibitors to adoption of any cloud technology and left unanswered will slow down the adoption of OpenStack, particularly within government and highly regulated industries such as healthcare. In this presentation NetApp outlines a hybrid approach that leverages the best of open-source and next generation technologies within an OpenStack deployment, as well as a way of unifying data management across OpenStack, HyperScale public cloud and traditional Enterprise architecture that addresses these questions while providing a solid platform for rapid innovation.
