  • Speaker:  Dr. Kenneth Tan
    How to build an OpenStack cloud in Academic sector: University of Edinburgh
     The popularity of private cloud adoption even in the academic sector is rapidly rising. Today, OpenStack in academia is not just a subject we discussed at summits or conferences anymore. But how can you successfully adopt OpenStack when even log management and monitoring seems to be piecemeal for operators? It is clear that full OpenStack solution would be beneficial for efficient, automated, and cost effective cloud computing solutions, without requiring large OpenStack operations teams. Not all operators have the luxury of having teams dedicated to operate OpenStack.

    During the presentation we will talk about how University of Edinburgh is more productive than ever with a full OpenStack solutions - Deploy, Operate, Upgrade, about how we put into production in 8 weeks the research services department of one of the UK’s largest academic private cloud system, and what is still missing for OpenStack to make the adoption of cloud computing more flexible and self-served.
