This is the second post in a three-part series on OpenStack Training.
Part 2 - Current Post
On the utility of OpenStack and the need for OpenStack skills:
Pete Hnath: One of the most important things to mention is that OpenStack Platform is built on Red Hat Enterprise Linux® and it is an evolving part of our long history of delivering enterprise IT platforms to customers.
Typically, this means that you are operating a high-degree of scale. You are not just deploying a server or even a cluster of servers to support an app, you are really talking deploying, very broadly, a platform that would support many, many, many apps across a variety of use cases. You are laying the next generation datacenter down. The real utility of OpenStack is to provide a business a platform for a ultimately a hybrid Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform.
Randy Russell: When it comes to OpenStack skills, enterprises are faced with a build or buy decision: build talent from within, or acquire the talent externally. It is no secret that filling open requisitions for Cloud-related IT jobs can be difficult, costly and time-consuming.
