Q&A Panel with Media and Analyst Covering OpenStack

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The analysts and media who cover OpenStack will offer direct, unvarnished feedback in this moderated panel. Come and join the conversation, covering questions like: 

- Why do we keep talking about the "benevolent dictator vs technical meritocracy" question? Why do some     think that OpenStack needs its own Linus Torvalds? 

- The rumor mill tells us that vendors have a growing number of large deployments in production. But those   customers have their vendors under strict NDA. Are we doing a disservice to the larger IT community by     not alluding to those as-yet-unannounced OpenStack deployments?

- What are the top pet peeves media and analysts have when talking to vendors and users in the              ecosystem? What do you wish we'd stop saying, and why?

- Why are vendors and enterprises drawn to OpenStack, and what is preventing greater adoption?  This    promises to be an engaging and frothy session.
