What You Missed at OpenStack Summit
The OpenStack community gathered in Tokyo for the 12th-Liberty release of the OpenStack platform. The Foundation reported over 5,000 attended the conference–50% for the first time. Attendees were from across the globe with 46% from APAC and 38% from North America. Job roles varied and included developers (28%), user/operators (25%), manager/architects (19%), sales/marketing (11%), and CxOs (10%).
OpenStack has entered the post-excitement phase, which may appear slow-moving, but reflects deeper customer engagement and a focus on the operationalization of OpenStack. Hundreds of interesting sessions were presented by community members and recorded for those who could not be there. Check out the OpenStack Foundation Summit site for the full schedule. Common themes included overcoming the complexity of configuring, deploying and maintaining OpenStack; retaining workload flexibility; and various approaches to manageability, scalability and extensibility. Having the Summit in Japan was an opportunity to highlight Asia-based users of OpenStack, including Kirin Brewing, Yahoo Japan, NEC, NTT Resonant, GMO Internet, CyberAgent, and Rakuten.
