Accelerate with ATS: OpenStack - Storage in the Open Cloud Ecosystem
OpenStack is the major Open Source Infrastructure-as-a-service (IAAS) platform that is used to build open cloud computing environments. The OpenStack project is backed by IBM as well as almost all key players in the IT industry.
Starting with explaining cloud computing terminology, then providing information about the OpenStack project, this webinar will provide an comprehensive overview how IBM is involved in the OpenStack project and what role (IBM) Storage plays within OpenStack environments.
We will will focus on the technical details of the OpenStack Storage architecture and how IBM storage systems tie into that including a live demo of a real-world OpenStack cluster with IBM storage solutions attached. We will also address the OpenStack Cinder Block Volume Service that is used to provision persistent storage to VMs running within an OpenStack Cluster including lessons the presenter learned when building a real-world OpenStack cluster with Storage attachment.
The Live Demo will show how easy Storage can be provisioned within an OpenStack cluster when using the IBM XIV Storage system.
