Today, I gave the a presentation that is the sequel to the “bootstrapping the hyperscale clouds.“ The topic addresses concerns raised by the BlackOps concept but brings up history and perspectives that drive Dell’s Solution focus for OpenStack.
I tend to favor pictures over text, so you may get more when OpenStack posts the video [link pending].
The talk is about our journey to build an OpenStack solution starting from our drive to build a cloud installer (Crowbar). The critical learning is that success for clouds is the adoption of an “operational model” (aka Cloud Ops) that creates cloud agility.
Ultimately, the presentation is the basis for another white paper.
