However, with today's emphasis on the cloud and particularly the opportunity with OpenStack, IT's role has shifted into a driver of business outcomes — largely due to its ability to expedite business processes with an efficient foundation…

Why OpenStack is Taking Off in the Enterprise

Companies investigating whether to make a shift to private cloud often wonder why OpenStack is increasingly mentioned as a strong alternative to remote-only options like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Engine, and Microsoft Azure – and whether it's matured enough to be a viable option as an enterprise cloud. While there are many hurdles for companies making "the switch," OpenStack has grown and matured in the past eight years to offer a solid, customizable, and risk-reducing platform…

Happy 7th Birthday OpenStack! You’ve Exited the Trough and Entered Slope of Enlightenment…

OpenStack recently celebrated it’s seventh birthday party in Santa Clara (check out videos here). It was a high energy event with lots of technical tracks, and complete with cupcakes. Who doesn’t love a good party? Seven is a great year for children as they can go on long bike rides, read books cover to cover, diets expand beyond chicken nuggets, and you don’t even need a car seat. OpenStack development is similar; performance and integration…

When you are talking about data storage, backup, and recovery, preparation is mission critical. (Side note: don’t get me started on the importance of testing your backups for recoverability. That is a topic for another post!) The recent Amazon Web Services (AWS) outage is a…

If you are like me, you enjoy quoting movies, politicians or famous people. It’s not for the lack of originality but perhaps it’s the humor or levity…
