Historically, some have considered OpenStack difficult to deploy and operate. There are dozens of resources from consultants and training to distributions and toolsavailable to help, but is the problem really solved? The fact is, operating an OpenStack cloud is not a trivial endeavor. This session will detail what it takes to actually operate an OpenStack cloud in production, from the perspective of a cloud operator who has more than three years of first-hand experience operating OpenStack clouds across dozens of deployments. Craig will share with the audience best practices for OpenStack operations and discuss what works 'out of the box' as well as the areas where improvisation is often required. In addition, Craig will share measured successes, miserable failures and what was done to solve problems on production infrastructure.
This session is intended to provide insight for fellow operators as well as prospective users.
