It's not every day that a company completely changes how they do things -- especially when dealing with a product as complicated as OpenStack. So when Mirantis announced the release of Mirantis Cloud Platform (MCP), the natural question is, "Just how different IS it from Mirantis OpenStack, and how? And more importantly, what does it mean for me?" Is it just an OpenStack cluster and a Kubernetes cluster stuck together?.

The world is very different from the one in which OpenStack was born. Join Mirantis for an overview of how MCP brings cloud infrastructure into today's technical landscape. You will learn:

  • The difference between a commercial OpenStack distribution and "just download the code and install it"
  • Why a private cloud is more than just OpenStack, or even OpenStack and Kubernetes
  • What else is involved in operating a cloud (hint: it's not just installation)
  • How to update your cloud without tearing your hair out
  • What you need to prevent cloud infrastructure problems before they happen

Join us on April 26 at 1pm EDT, 10am PDT and learn how to bring your cloud into today's new world.
