How this bookmaking business uses OpenStack to run fast and flexible
Paddy Power Betfair plc, a U.K.-based bookmaking business, was one of two winners who shared the title of OpenStack Superuser at last week’s OpenStack Summit in Boston, Massachusetts. The company built out a DevOps and continuous delivery model for developer, with OpenStack as the middleware. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.

Three things driving OpenStack’s refreshed enterprise adoption
OpenStack is growing in enterprise adoption, according to the company’s own user survey from this year, seeing a 44 percent increase in deployments compared to the survey conducted one year ago. In a market where open source business models are struggling to prove profitable, OpenStack faces its own challenges of remaining relevant just a few years after a high profile launch. So what’s driving this uptick in user adoption of OpenStack’s Infrastructure as a Service platform? Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.


Randy Bias
VP, Technology & Strategy, Cloud Software, Juniper

Kubernetes the future of OpenStack, says tech and strategy exec
One of the original ideas behind OpenStack’s launch in 2010 was to give enterprises an open-source alternative to the public cloud hyperscalers and VMware Inc. in private cloud environments. While many concepts and their attendant technologies have worked out as planned, just as many plans have fallen by the wayside for various reasons. However, within the ecosystem of OpenStack, containers may be providing a much-needed ray of sunshine. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.

Director, Operations Engineering, Adobe Advertising Cloud

OpenStack use case: Think lean and cloud native, says Adobe
An OpenStack user having set up two deployments at organizations revealed a lesson learned: While there can be some complexity with setting up OpenStack’s open-source cloud computing software, it’s best to consume just the things that are needed within the environment. There should be a focus on being very lean about the application program interfaces an enterprise consumes and what services they think are meaningful to their business, according to Joseph Sandoval (pictured, left), cloud platform manager at Adobe Systems Inc.

Sr. Principal Product Manager, Veritas

How to apply traditional storage management techniques to open-source tech
Since the first servers started coming online decades ago, managing hardware performance through software control has been at the forefront of internet infrastructure technologies. Only more recently has the term “software-defined storage” been used to describe software managed storage resources in the cloud computing ecosystem. Although cloud computing presents a new set of benefits and challenges, the same techniques for optimizing storage hardware performance can be applied.

Preparing for a new software-led networking world
Networking was a hot topic at this week’s OpenStack Summit in Boston, Massachusetts. One of the most notable use cases discussed during the Summit was Verizon’s Software-Defined Networking-Network Function Virtualization OpenStack cloud deployment across five of its U.S. data centers. But while the network industry has been discussing SDN for the past five or so years and there have been some success stories like Verizon’s, the rate of change has been slow, according to Lee Doyle, principal analyst at Doyle Research.

VP of Telecommunications, Red Hat

OpenStack: preparing telcos for a 5G world
In the not-too-distant past, telecommunication companies were comfortable in a stodgy, hardware-driven world where they had the luxury of time to test services and introduce them to the public. The past 20 years, however, completely changed the world of telecom, with the amount of services and apps that are handled on the ubiquitous “smart” phones, an amount that is increasing hourly. The much-anticipated 5G network requires even more flexibility, agility and speed, as the next generation of services needs an agile infrastructure fabric and software capability to deliver applications over those networks.
