OpenStack Today

OpenStack is the fastest growing open source cloud infrastructure project today. Organizations are creating private OpenStack clouds in their datacenters or deploying applications to public OpenStack clouds hosted by HP, Rackspace, and others. MySQL is at the heart of OpenStack deployments. Come to this event to learn the latest trends in OpenStack and how MySQL fits into the evolving OpenStack roadmap.

Percona is pleased to support the free “OpenStack Today” event during Open Source Appreciation Day. Leading industry technologists will speak about OpenStack, MySQL, and related technologies in multiple sessions. View the bottom of this page for agenda and speaker details.
