Cloud_Tr1 – Configuration of an OpenStack Cloud

Réf : CLOUD_Tr1


This course introduces the concepts and components of the Cloud with OpenStack, and the best practices for its deployment. OpenStack is an open source platform for building private and public clouds, and a community project that aims to help organisations implement virtual server and storage systems at lower cost. Now supported by more than 150 technical partners, including heavyweights such as Cisco, IBM, Yahoo! and NASA (the project’s originator), the OpenStack project has greatly increased in maturity and the software solutions that result from the community’s work are now recognised as being very mature.
