Operations teams have the mantra to "Stay out of the way of the business". Their success has historically been grounded in maximizing availability, minimizing cost, and accelerating the business value of infrastructure through automation and self-service. For well-established operations teams, open-source initiatives can change the balance that they have come to depend on through their predominately close-source choices that brought them this far. This panel is represented by operations-minded experts who respect the priorities of stability and supportability of large scale production infrastructures. We welcome you to listen to their perspectives on:

  • How do you have a throat to choke in an open-source deployment?

  • Common obstacles and frustrations in making the transition from closed to open-source.

  • Are frequent upgrades to open-source IaaS and OS platforms a threat to production uptime and availability?

  • Who's responsible for availability? Proper metrics and measurement techniques.

The strategies and tactics shared by this experienced panel will provide valuable guidance as your priorities shift toward greater dependence on open-source technologies.
