Cloud “Office Hours” with HPE OpenStack® Technology Experts Now Available from HPE


Next week’s OpenStack® summit is a unique opportunity for the developers and users of OpenStack® software to meet and exchange ideas.

What a concept: focusing on technology with meaningful conversation, insights, and technical details. Not your typical high-tech conference these days.

Our Education Services team attends every one of these events. Next week, we have our Portfolio lead – Larry Hinman – at the event. Larry is a long-time cloud and datacenter consultant. Near the end of 2015, he moved over to Education because he noticed some needs cropping up in consulting deals and he thought we should bring these worlds closer together. For example:

  • The scope of change caused by cloud, and OpenStack Technology, is larger than most other types of technology transformations
  • Impact on individual IT practitioners is transformational, with the need to grow development skills – it’s about building rather than operating
  • The cloud concept is simple, using the cloud for end-users is simple, but building the cloud is hard
  • Consulting teams need to help on people, along with process and technology – which begs the question:

What is your team doing to prepare YOU and to support YOUR journey into cloud? We are offering “Office Hours” and other key resources to guide your journey.

Larry and his team have organized a special subscription offer, called “Prime” for OpenStack® Technology. When you register for this, you get access to the best combination of resources, discussion forums, and on-demand training – all carefully selected because Larry knows what developers need to be successful in working with OpenStack.

Here’s what you get in the Prime subscription:

  • HPE MyVirtual Lab Fundamentals of OpenStack® Technology – with 1 week of contiguous access to our state-of-the-art HPE Virtual Labs (vLabs) facility for your hands-on practice with OpenStack.
  • This is supported with a Web-Based Training (WBT) on how to access and use the DevStack Lab environment provided to you with OpenStack. A “getting started” and a “refresher” are both provided, to make this easy for you.
  • A Delta Course for Fundamentals of OpenStack® Technology – this course covers the differences between prior versions and the latest OpenStack version, including “what’s new?” and latest features.
  • HPE Office Hours for Cloud – gives you one-hour per month, of live interactive Q&A with our certified instructors and technology experts. In these sessions, our team recommends additional materials, tools, communities and other resources made available in the session to continue your mentoring and learning.
  • HPE Expert Series Seminars for Cloud – gives you access to one session per quarter, presented by our HPE Cloud Experts.
  • Courseware eBook materials and updates – you receive the Fundamentals of OpenStack® Technology student courseware and any updates delivered during the subscription period.

Have we caught your attention? This entire subscription is offered at a great value discount, over purchase of these components individually. Some of these, are also only available within this subscription.

If you’re interested, be sure to find Larry in the HPE booth at the summit next week. You can also go ahead and register for the subscription – to get started immediately.
