This session will pick up where we left off in Paris. The ecosystem is changing and growing rapidly around OpenStack. If you saw the session in Paris or if you are new to the OpenStack community this refresh, will help to take you through the OpenStack ecosystem.

If you take one look at the OpenStack ecosystem, you can see that enterprise adoption is in full swing. For enterprises businesses to take full advantage of any technology, a vibrant ecosystem is key. Enterprise businesses do not adopt technology in silos. Silos, will not provide the complete solution needed by these businesses. The OpenStack Ecosystem is growing rapidly. The history of this ecosystem can be seen in the diversity of distro players, but in the past few cycles, there has been a clear expansion into a much wider range of solution and services.

This session will cover who’s who in the OpenStack ecosystem and show you how you can use this growing ecosystem to create complete enterprise solutions with OpenStack. This will cover areas like:


  • OpenStack Marketplace

    • Training Services

    • Distros & Appliances

    • Public Cloud Providers

    • Consulting and Integration Services

    • Drivers

  • Virtual Desktop Solutions

  • PaaS Solutions

  • Block and Object Storage Solutions

  • Subscription solutions for consumption of OpenStack in both a public and private model.

  • OpenStack Management Solutions

  • Virtual Machine availability

  • Management Solutions

  • ISVs (not a lot, but worth mentioning so that more ISVs will start working :))

Embracing the ecosystem is key to the success of any OpenStack deployment. Getting an understanding of what is available is a critical success factor for any installation. There is a larger ecosystem out there that provides software and services to meet the business needs of the enterprise. This session will show you how to find your way around this diverse and growing environment by mapping the OpenStack ecosystem. This session will also highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the vendors.
