At Comcast, we thrive on well-designed architecture and engineering solutions. In this panel discussion, we will talk about how to plan, build, support, operate and expand a private cloud within your organization. We will discuss what has worked for us at Comcast and what obstacles and challenges we face. We will talk about the planning and architecting phases, the operations piece and keeping up with the fast moving growth with automation. In addition, we will bring up the obstacles/challenges we face and any hiccups along the way.

We have built a distributed multi-site environment that gets data as close to our users as possible. We’ve increased our OpenStack infrastructure by more than 500 percent in the last year and our commitment is greater than ever. We believe in the open source paradigm, promoting community collaboration, and providing excellent service to our customers.
