Event Details

OpenStack - What is it, How do I use it and What jobs can I get?

Instructors:  Elizabeth Krumbach (HP), Ryan Lane (Wikipedia), Anita Kuno(HP)

Open to the public

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter - all managed through a dashboard that gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. It is the premier open source cloud infrastructure platform which was born from NASA and, subsequently, was partnered with Rackspace and other leading cloud infrastructure providers. 


In this workshop, we will go over the architecture and formation of OpenStack. You will also learn the basics of the key components of OpenStack, get to install the development version of OpenStack (DevStack) on your own system and learn how to contribute to the project  

This will be a hands-on workshop so please bring your laptop.
