In our modern, fast-paced, digital-first world, responding quickly to internal and external changes without losing vision is absolutely key for all companies who want to survive, thrive and ultimately surpass the competition.
Today, your business must be able to respond quickly and adapt to the constant fluctuation of customer demands, all while capitalizing almost immediately on new market opportunities. Whether you’re responding to a spike in user demand, rolling out a new internal service or even launching a new product, your business needs things to happen faster than ever before. As a result, IT departments are expected to keep pace with continually evolving requirements and increased speed of the business.
How do you keep up? How can you compete? By making it easier and cheaper to provision new workloads and deliver the necessary computing resources for the business, IT staff can deliver faster cycle times. Sounds good, right? But how can you make it happen? SUSE OpenStack Cloud does all this and more.
By transforming the IT infrastructure with SUSE OpenStack Cloud, enterprises can accelerate time to value for new projects and capture market opportunities that would have been difficult to address with a static data center because of capital investment risk or limited execution speed.
SUSECON 2017 in the historic city of Prague will feature over 140 sessions and a good number of them will address SUSE OpenStack Cloud. Even better? I’ve listed the top three sessions that address SUSE OpenStack Cloud and your businesses requirement to be agile below. The schedule builder is now available so be sure to add these to your schedule.

One of the most important aspects of SUSE OpenStack Cloud is how straightforward the deployment of OpenStack becomes thanks to it. There are, however, many hidden features that are essential for large deployments, and even useful for simple use cases. This includes fully automating the deployment of OpenStack, testing the network configuration of nodes, using non-standard networking setups, enabling additional features in OpenStack, and more. There are many little-known secrets that we want to share with a larger audience through this session!
Wednesday, Sep 27, 2:30 PM – 4:45 PM
Thursday, Sep 28, 10:30 AM – 12:45 PM
Vincent Untz, Senior Project Manager, SUSE
Adam Spiers, Senior Software Engineer, SUSE
“High availability for OpenStack has progressed in a big way in the past few years, from HA for the control plane to HA for compute nodes. The community is refining these solutions further, but SUSE OpenStack Cloud already provides an easy-to-use solution to deploy HA for OpenStack. In this technical hands-on session, you will learn why HA is important in the OpenStack context and how it works. And, you will be able to directly experiment with it, thanks to a pre-built environment. If you want to try breaking an OpenStack cloud and see it recover automatically, this hands-on session will be perfect for you!”

Christophe Le Dorze, SUSE
Carsten Duch, Sales Engineer, SUSE
“Every developer loves containers because they are easy to create, share and deploy. Enterprise companies all over the world are building DevOps teams to leverage their software development with containers. But setting up an environment with a continuous delivery pipeline to build, test and run containers is quite a challenge for their operation teams. As of SUSE OpenStack Cloud 7, Magnum is now included and can be used to deploy Kubernetes Clusters within OpenStack. In this session, we will demonstrate how you can utilize SUSE OpenStack Cloud 7 with Magnum to build your DevOps-enabled Continuous Delivery pipeline for containers.”
