OpenStack on Cisco UCS Integration with Automated Deployment Tools (OSUCS)
OpenStack is an open and scalable operating system for building public and private clouds. It provides both large and small organizations an alternative to closed cloud environments, reducing the risks of lock-in associated with proprietary platforms. OpenStack offers flexibility and choice through a highly engaged community of over 6.000 individuals and over 190 companies including Cisco, Rackspace, Dell, IBM, and Red Hat.
This course will provide learners with a basic, working understanding of UCS and OpenStack. The course explains how the two components integrate to provide a cloud management and orchestration environment. The course also provides exercises that will allow attendees to setup a working OpenStack deployment on UCS infrastructure from start to finish, using automated deployment tools.
