OpenStack: 21st Century App Architecture and Cloud Operations

The advent of IaaS has brought about a new style of application architecture built around the idea that the components of your architecture should be fine-grained programmable resources. This allows applications to be resilient and scalable, but also allows the operation of the application to be fully automated.

Mark will discuss how OpenStack was designed from the ground up with these same principles in mind and can be deployed in a highly resilient and fault tolerant manner. Mark will go on to explain how you should aim to build on OpenStack's architecture so that operating an OpenStack cloud is as automated as operating a modern cloud based application.
