Course Outline:

Day 1: Private Cloud Focus (OpenStack)


Day 1 focus will provide overview state of the art topics in how companies are building hyperscale data centers using the new open source technologies OpenStack.  OpenStack dramatically reduces the cost and speed of deploying a private cloud that is build using inexpensive, off the shelf infrastructure.  The sessions will also provide insights into what big data is and how companies can learn and assess the opportunities provided by big data.  There is an entire ecosystem and framework that makes OpenStack and Hadoop the key disruptive technologies that will transform how data centers are deployed and how companies use their data for strategic advantages.  

The content will address key questions such as:


  • What is OpenStack and how can I use it in my organization?
  • Are there fully integrated and tested end to end solution that I know works?
  • What are the different options of deploying OpenStack?

Module 1:

  1. OpenStack history and background
  2. Differences between the existing virtualization technology in the market that enables public and private cloud?
  3. What is the trend in US and Silicon Valley nowadays in terms of Cloud direction?
  4. Top reasons why company choose OpenStack over other virtualization technology?

Module 2: 

  1. A case analysis on the cost saving using the right Virtualization and the right Hardware infrastructure to gain the best TCO.
