In this session, John Griffith and Rodney Peck will examine one of the strongest initial use case fits for introducing OpenStack, and specifically OpenStack Block Storage, within your enterprise IT infrastructure; self service test & development.

This session will focus on discussing the advantages of providing self-service infrastructure to test and development teams and how it can serve as a gateway to other use cases in your environment. In particular we’ll talk about the role of Block Storage (Cinder) in a test and development environment, and how features like boot from volume and cloning can greatly improve operational efficiency while also providing developers with the infrastructure services they need to remain productive (and happy).

The last portion of this presentation will be dedicated to an in-depth review of a sample reference architecture to get OpenStack, including Block Storage, up and running today in this self-service test & development use case.
