The OpenStack Foundation have just released the session agenda for the inaugural Open Infrastructure Summit, which will be taking place in May in Denver, Colorado. As you’ll no doubt already know, the OpenStack Summits are no more, so we’ll instead be getting together to talk about all the different open infrastructure components that businesses are using to build their infrastructures.
Whether you’re a die-hard OpenStack fan, if Kubernetes is more your bag, maybe Kata Containers floats your boat or if Ceph is more your bag, then there’s something for you in the Mile High City this May.
Paint it black (well, green actually)
Of course, SUSE will be there – we’re founding members of the OpenStack Foundation, and were the first to release an enterprise-ready OpenStack distribution way back in the mists of time (2011 if you want to be precise). We’ve been planning the theme for our booth for a while now, and it’s going to stand out as always – over the years you’ve met the SUSE Pit Crew, the SUSE Surgical Team and the SUSE Flight Crew, so you’ll have to wait and see what 2019 brings. Rest assured, the colour green will be very evident, and there will of course be chameleons.
Some of the team from SUSE will be presenting through the week, so be sure to come along to say hello to the team at the booth, and check out some of our sessions:
