Is OpenStack ready for the Enterprise? How can Enterprises leverage OpenStack to deliver a scalable and stable environment for their workloads? In 2012/13, OpenStack’s Folsom release had 368 developers. Icehouse, the most recent release (April 2014) has 1,224 developers. What does this mean in terms of stability and scalability of OpenStack? Does this pose a risk to Enterprises looking to adopt OpenStack?


More and more companies are starting to look at OpenStack as an option for their Private Cloud deployments. With 14 distributions of OpenStack in the market, it is increasingly important to understand what each one offers and why.


In this Gigaom webinar, the panelists will examine the current state of OpenStack, discuss the benefit of Opensource and its Community, and outline concrete steps and examples that businesses can take to decide if an OpenStack Cloud is right for them.
