Have you heard of the OpenStack Innovation Center (https://osic.org/) (aka OSIC)? It's a joint effort between Rackspace and Intel designed to ultimately consist of about 2,000 physical nodes deployed at two data centers in Texas and California, OSIC is expected to further accelerate the development of OpenStack capabilities and their adoption in the enterprise.
Sonu Sreenivasan and David Brown will join us on July 21st to talk about everything under the OSIC umbrella - including how developers can request access for their testing and development, and some of the use cases they've seen deployed in the environment.
We will also be celebrating OpenStack's 6th birthday this month, so please come help us honor six years of incredible growth and progress in the OpenStack world!
