From the editor

Is OpenStack right for your enterprise?

OpenStack®―a set of open source tools for creating and managing private and public clouds―lets you design a unique yet standardized cloud platform. But is it worth the considerable time, budget, and effort required to install and manage it? First ask yourself: How will we use it in production? Will we train our team to support it or invest in an enterprise solution? What will we achieve in return for our investment?

It’s also helpful to learn why and how other enterprises are using OpenStack. We cover that this month along with advice and research stats. Plus, get a Red Hat® Summit preview.
