It's no secret that OpenStack deployment can be, at best, a challenge. (At worst it can be a little like trying to perform brain surgery while simultaneously walking a tightrope and tossing a pizza.)

Fortunately, it doesn't have to be this way. Converged Infrastructure provides a way for you to receive a pre-deployed OpenStack cloud, along with the validated, pre-configured hardware that goes with it. These appliances let you go from 0 to secure private cloud in the minimum amount of time.

Want to know more? Join us on Tuesday, April 5, as Gordon Rothstein of FusionStorm and Greg Loughmiller of Mirantis discuss the pros and cons of OpenStack appliances with OpenStack:Unlocked's Nick Chase. They'll discuss:

  • What Converged Infrastructure is and how it relates to appliances
  • How Converged Infrastructure simplifies the OpenStack deployment process
  • What's involved in integrating an OpenStack deployment process
  • How to choose an appliance without choosing vendor lock-in
  • What to look for in a Converged Infrastructure vendor relationship

We know you're busy -- that's why this shortcut to value matters. Can't make it on the day? Don't let that stop you. All registrants will get the video of the webinar, so sign up today, before you forget!
