Read Giueseppe Paterno's OpenStack Explained eBook for Nepal Relief


Guest Post: Giuseppe Paterno, HP Helion MVP and CTO and Director of GARL


It’s no secret that OpenStack is becoming the de-facto standard for private cloud and a way for telecom operators to differentiate against big names such as Amazon or Google.


OpenStack has already been adopted in some specific projects, but the wide adoption in enterprises is starting now, mostly because people simply find it difficult to understand.  VMWare is still something to compare to, but OpenStack and cloud is different. While cloud implies virtualization, virtualization is not cloud.


Cloud is a huge shift in your organization and will change forever your way of working in the IT projects, improving your IT dramatically and cutting down costs.


In order to get the best of OpenStack, you need to understand deeply how cloud works. Moreover, you need to understand the whole picture beyond the software itself to provide new levels of agility, flexibility, and cost savings in your business.


Giuseppe Paterno’, leading European consultant, wrote “OpenStack Explained” to guide you through the OpenStack technology and reveal his “secret ingredient” to have a successful project. You can download the ebook for a small donation to provide emergency and reconstruction aid for the victims of the earthquake in Nepal. Your donation is certified by ZEWO[1], the Swiss federal agency that ensures that funds go to a real charity project.


… but hurry up, the ebook is in a limited edition and it ends on July 2015.
