Designing a fully orchestrated OpenStack cloud can be complex, time-consuming, and downright scary, making you feel as if you're standing on a precarious professional cliff. In this webinar, you'll find lampposts of knowledge and wisdom to light your way. StackVelocity and SUSE have teamed up to help you understand how to develop solutions that allow you to accelerate your time to value while maintaining the economics required for success in the marketplace.

In this webinar, you will learn:
  • The challenges in orchestrating OpenStack that all enterprises should consider
  • How to think about the challenges in terms of the features your cloud is expected to deliver (e.g., DBaaS; LBaaS; federation to other cloud infrastructures, OpenStack or otherwise)
  • The best practices for designing, building, pre-validating, installing, managing, monitoring and optimizing an OpenStack cloud
  • How to plan your orchestration strategy in light of the ongoing maturation of OpenStack
  • How the StackVelocity/SUSE solution for cloud orchestration gets you from "sowing" to "reaping" as quickly as possible

This session will provide practical, actionable strategies you can put to use immediately, regardless of the OpenStack distro or cloud orchestration solution you choose to implement.
