Deploy, manage, and scale your cloud more effectively

Red Hat and Rackspace have a history of collaboration throughout the years. Join us for an afternoon technical tech talk session about how Red Hat OpenStack Platform managed by Rackspace can work for your business. We'll go from high level to "into the weeds" with experts, covering such topics as:

  • Why VMware shops are looking for an alternative platform to deliver self-service private clouds to give teams quicker access to resources
  • How public cloud users (AWS, Azure, Google) can reduce expenses and move workloads to OpenStack
  • Why highly regulated industries require a private cloud
  • How containers can simplify application deployment
  • How specific workloads, including Hadoop and video/image processing, can benefit from OpenStack
  • How customers use Red Hat OpenStack Platform and OpenShift to succeed

 

After the presentation, join us for complimentary drinks and appetizers.
