In March, Rick Ashford, OpenStack specialist with SUSE will led the session.
Most OpenStack distributions are centered around a single hypervisor, KVM. Enterprises, on the other hand, have massive investments in a variety of different virtualization platforms. Building a private cloud is a massive change in and of itself, and most large enterprises are reluctant to lose their existing competence with their chosen hypervisor at the same time. In our March session, Rick will detail how to integrate VMware, Hyper-V, and Xen, along with KVM into a single, heterogeneous OpenStack environment. We will also discuss various ways that a multi-hypervisor setup can help an enterprise maximize cost efficiencies, leverage existing skill sets, and expand the reach of automated services to more groups in a large enterprise.
