Earlier this month when the Bexar release for OpenStack went live, a meet up was held in Santa Clara. As a part of the event, a series of lightening talks were given by various OpenStack community members. One of the speakers was Dell’s very own Rob Hirschfeld, a senior cloud solutions architect, who has been actively involved with the OpenStack project from the get-go.
Here is the short presentation that Rob gave where he talks about some of the key characteristics of a hyperscale environment and how it differs from a traditional enterprise data center.
Some of the topics Rob touches on:
- “Nested centralized” vs “Flat Edges”
- Fully redundant vs. cloud non-redundant
- Fault zones across applications
- Cloud-ready hardware
- Next OpenStack design summit, April 26-27 in Santa Clara
- “Stacker” Mark Collier gives an OpenStack Update
- Rob’s blog
Pau for now…
