Real World Experiences with Upgrading OpenStack at Time Warner Cable

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How much work is it really to upgrade to newer versions of OpenStack? What problems might you run into and what should you tell your customers about it? We'll talk about our experiences as an operator upgrading services individually and in bulk to both Kilo and Juno. Topics covered will include:
