[TPR1013] OpenStack *NEW*

Printer-friendly PDF version

Cloud computing is transforming enterprise IT as well as communication service provider networks and OpenStack is the open source Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution for building and managing shared clouds. This course provides a conceptual understanding of the benefits, capabilities, architecture as well as the high level architecture of the OpenStack IaaS. Then we explain the functionality provided by each of the key services such as Glance, Keystone, Nova, Glance, Neutron, Cinder, and Swift as well as Heat orchestration. Finally, we will discuss OpenStack orchestration and telemetry services and how it integrates with NFV and SDN.
