No no, I am not making money by writing this, but I was gifted with a VMworld blogger pass for Las Vegas. I’m really grateful for this opportunity and I can assure that this post would have been exactly the same if I didn’t received the ticket.

OpenStack Architecture and Stability

OpenStack has been getting a bad reputation for being impossible to get stable at scale. Architects can get it working as a PoC, but when it comes time to actually turn it over to the operations team, there are natural challenges. This presentation draws out the architecture and discusses how to achieve stability in your OpenStack deployment at scale.

Why OpenStack

Why OpenStack

Why OpenStack

There are different viewpoints on why IT departments would deploy OpenStack. Some believe there is cost savings that could be achieved through the use of open source infrastructure under the framework.

A Take-3 is where employees can take 3 months out of their current role and try a new challenge in another part of the company. Once we launched VSAN 6.2 earlier this year, I thought this would be an opportune time to try something different. Thanks to the support from the management teams in both my Storage and Availability BU (SABU) and the Cloud Native Apps BU (CNABU), I started my Take-3 at the beginning of May.

As a 36-year tech veteran, CEO Pat Gelsinger of VMware Inc. has virtually seen it all from a technology perspective. Which is why it carried weight when he recently said that enterprises are currently experiencing “the most disruptive period in the history of IT.”
